According to a Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey released on Nov. 4, more than half of likely U.S. voters said they support workers refusing to comply with vaccine mandates against COVID.

Fifty-two percent of those likely voters said they support those workers while 38 percent do not.

Fifty-nine percent of voters said they think employees losing their jobs over vaccine mandates would be bad for the economy. Fourteen percent said it would be good for the economy.

Curiously, 49 percent of likely voters said they support Biden’s policy of mandatory vaccination for employees working for businesses with 100 or more employees. However, 48 percent oppose the policy.

Sixty-eight percent of Republicans and 58 percent of unaffiliated voters said they support employees.

Much of the support for Biden’s policy comes from Democrats. Seventy-five percent of Democrats support his policy. Only 31 percent of Republicans and 39 percent of unaffiliated voters agree.
