A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey revealed 38 percent of American adults believe U.S. athletes who are not vaccinated against COVID should be required to get the vaccine.

Forty-five percent do not think athletes should be forced to get vaccinated while 17 percent said they were not sure.

Sixty percent of Democrats said U.S. Olympic athletes should be required to get the injection. Only 27 percent of Republicans and 27 percent of unaffiliated voters agree.

Just 27 percent of Democrats said athletes should not be required to get the vaccine.
