A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey shows 47 percent of American adults rate the response of their state government to COVID as good or excellent. Just 38 percent rated the federal government’s response as good or excellent.

Twenty-seven percent rated the federal government’s response as poor, while 22 percent rated their state government’s response as poor.

In terms of vaccination, 63 percent said they’ve received a COVID injection. Those who have been vaccinated also have a higher opinion of both state and federal responses to COVID.

Fifty-eight percent of those who have received a COVID injection rate their state government’s response as good or excellent. Forty-three percent rate the federal response as good or excellent.

However, among those who have not joined the experiment and remain unvaccinated, 29 percent rate the state government’s response as good or excellent and 31 percent rate the federal response as good or excellent.

Interestingly, 67 percent said no one in their immediate family has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Democrats (58 percent) are more likely than Republicans (46 percent) or unaffiliated voters (39 percent) to rate their state government’s response as good or excellent. Republicans (45 percent) are more likely than Democrats (40 percent) or unaffiliated voters (31 percent) to rate the federal government’s response as good or excellent.

Seventy-nine percent of Democrats said they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19 while 57 percent of Republicans have and 54 percent of unaffiliated voters said the same.
