Among U.S. adults intending to vote for President Donald Trump's re-election, 44% see controversial drug hydroxychloroquine as a cure for COVID-19, according to the latest Yahoo News poll conducted by YouGov.
That figure represents a plurality of those intending to vote for Trump this November. Another 33% are unsure, while only 23% say it is not a cure for the global coronavirus pandemic.
The numbers for those intending to vote for Biden are far more convinced in the opposite direction:
- 85% say it is not a cure.
- 11% are unsure.
- Just 4% believe it is a cure.
Biden leads Trump in the poll 49% to 40% among registered voters, getting a majority of support from young voters (under age 30), middle-age voters (30-44 years old), city voters, women, Blacks, and Hispanics.
Trump does not get the majority for any groups outside of Republicans and rural voters.
Despite that, the same poll found it a dead heat for who will ultimately win the election: 40% saying Biden, 40% saying Trump, and 20% saying either.
The Yahoo News/YouGov poll was conducted July 28-30 among 1,506 American adults of which 1,071 are registered voters, including 540 likely to vote for Biden and 388 likely to vote for Trump. The poll results did not provide a margin of error for any of the pools.
