According to a poll released last week by Rasmussen Reports, 24 percent of Americans believe someone they know died from side effects due to the COVID shot. Forty-two percent said if there were a major class-action lawsuit against pharmaceutical companies for shot side effects, they’d be likely to join.
Sixty-nine percent of those asked said they do not know anyone who died from receiving the shot while 47 percent said they would not be likely to join a class-action lawsuit.
Interestingly, among those who said someone they knew died from the COVID virus, 41 percent also said they knew someone who died from side effects of the shot. Among those who said they don’t know anyone who died from the virus, just 9 percent said they know someone who died from the jab’s side effects.
Thirty-two percent of other minorities said someone they know personally died from the shot side effects. Twenty-eight percent of black Americans and 20 percent of white Americans said the same.
According to the poll, 25 percent of Republicans said someone they know personally died from side effects of the shot as do 24 percent of Democrats and 24 percent of unaffiliated voters.
Forty percent of government employees said someone they know personally died from side effects of the shot. Just 18 percent of private sector workers said the same.
