Hill-HarrisX poll: "Nearly 3 in 4 support reinstating mask mandates if COVID-19 cases rise"

Ninety-three percent of Democrats said they support reinstating mask mandates if their areas sees an upswing in COVID-19 cases, along with 71 percent of independents and 59 percent of Republicans.


Claim is that there is a +/- 3% margin of error, but, of course, it's just one poll. Never-the-less, it's a little bit encouraging.

Mask mandates, social distancing extra sanitation procedures etc should NOT have been lifted so early. I know; "wah, wah, wah, I don't want to be inconvenienced, EVERYBODY else should change their lives to accommodate ME".

It would be poetic justice if all these crybabies contracted COVID and died.

Politicians are the driving force, they stick a finger in the wind (focus group) and decide where their future lies.

Those "crybabies" are the ones who performed their civic duty by GETTING VACCINATED. Myself included.

But thanks for the well-wishes.

I think that poll would look differently if it were regional instead of partisan.

Front page in my local paper today: Gov McMaster ignored state health dept guidance when he lifted mask mandates.

Now cases, hospitalizations and deaths are spiking again in South Carolina, and the special COVID ICU units may have to reopen. State is at 44% fully vaccinated.

Yes. I would like to see both the partisan breakdown (that they already did) and a regional breakdown.

Story in WaPo about how L.A. sub-cities all up in arms about mandates. Several want to break away from the County health dept and form their own departments.

Lots of little fiefdoms all wanting freedom but not responsibility.

They don’t want business hurt now, but have zero plan for ensuring business stay healthy if people don’t show up for work.

I'm surprised DeathSantis hasn't made mask wearing a crime

I don't see any news on TV aside from Maddow, only on radio, and really, only when I drive.

Online, I don't search much, just follow posted links that seem interesting.

So, is anybody in mainstream news media taking governors to task for fiddling while their state burns?

Or even without editorializing, just saying something akin to 'On Monday Gov. __________ abolished mask wearing mandates (and voting rights). As of seven days later, COVID deaths have increased by ______ number or ______ percent.

I've seen a few online news reports from local new stations (not FOX) and unlike CNN or MSNBC, the two haven't seemed to ever be mentioned together, as the the station didn't want to be seen as violating the 'correlations is not causation' principle.

Just wondering...





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
