March 5, 2021: Fifty-two percent (52%) of voters nationwide have a favorable opinion of Dr. Anthony Fauci. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 32% have an unfavorable view of him, while 17% are not sure.[1]

Fauci has become a visible presence in the public dialogue over the coronavirus pandemic. His approval ratings reflect a wide partisan divide that has been found on many topics related to the pandemic.

Fauci is viewed favorably by 82% of Democrats and unfavorably by 56% of Republicans. Independent voters are more evenly divided: 40% favorable and 35% unfavorable.[1]

Data released recently shows that a plurality of voters believe the worst of the pandemic is behind us. Wednesday's Number of the Day showed that 50% believe many cities and states overreacted to the pandemic in ways that did more harm than good.
