April 14, 2021: Sixty-two percent (62%) of voters believe restaurant owners should decide whether vaccine passports are required to visit their business.

A Ballotpedia national survey found that 26% think that decision should be made by government officials. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure.[1]

The results are similar when asked who should make such decisions about a wedding reception. Sixty-three percent (63%) believe the decision about vaccine passports should be made by the people getting married and the reception hall.

Just 21% believe government officials should make that decision.[1]

In both cases, a majority or plurality of every measured demographic group believes the choice should be made by the individuals involved rather than government officials.

More than three-out-of-four Republican respondents hold such views.

So do a solid majority of Democrat and independent respondents.[1]

The survey also found modest support for the idea of vaccine passports. Fifty-four percent (54%) favor the idea, but 41% do not. Support for the concept comes from 73% of Democrat, 45% of independent, and 39% of Republican respondents.[1]
