Why Joe Biden should go all-in on vaccine mandates

Ten days ago, I wrote that Joe Biden had gambled his presidency on his decision to mandate Covid-19 vaccines for upward of 100 million Americans.

That’s looking like a very smart betas poll after poll shows clear majorities supportive of the vaccine mandate.
* A Fox News poll released over the weekend showed almost 6 に 10 アメリカ人 (58%) saying they support the federal government requiring all federal workers to be vaccinated. The same poll showed near-identical support (56%) for the government to compel all businesses with more than 100 employees to have their people vaccinated (or tested weekly).
    * A CNN poll released last week showed that a majority of Americans support vaccination requirements to return to the workplace (54%), kids attending in-person classes (55%), and concertgoers and people attending sporting events (55%).
      *And this from a Monmouth University poll released last week: “Most Americans support vaccine mandates for key groups mentioned in Biden’s announcement last week. This includes requiring Covid vaccines for health care workers (63%), federal employees (58%), and private contractors working for the federal government (55%).”

        The simple fact is that in a deeply divided country on, 上手, almost everything, vaccine mandates are a clear majority winner in poll after poll.
        なぜ? People want things back to normaland the Delta variant has scared plenty of people straight about the dangers of not being vaccinated.
            Now what? Expect President Bidenand Democratic leaders in Congressto push hard on their vaccine mandate messaging, knowing, 間違いなく, the bulk of the public is behind them. That will put Republicans in a bind, because while their base is skeptical of mandates, 彼ら, あまりにも, see the polling on the issue with the general public.
            ポイント: Biden’s presidency will be defined by how he is perceived to have reacted to the coronavirus pandemic. And with his vaccine mandate, he’s on very solid ground.
