January 11, 2022: Fifty-three percent (53%) of voters believe the loss of educational opportunities from shutting down schools is a bigger threat to children than the possibility of getting COVID. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 31% disagree and believe COVID is the bigger threat.
Republicans overwhelmingly see the loss of educational opportunities as the bigger threat. Independent voters agree by a 2-to-1 margin. Democrats, however, disagree. By a 47% to 35% margin, those in President Biden’s party see the possibility of getting COVID as the bigger threat.
The survey also found that 36% believe it should be against the law for unvaccinated Americans to fly on commercial airlines. Forty-five percent (45%) disagree.
There is also a significant divide on this question. Democrats, by a 2-to-1 margin, believe it should be against the law for the unvaccinated to fly. Republicans disagree by an even wider margin (60% to 24%). Among independents, 30% believe it should be against the law while 49% disagree.
