Seventy-five percent of Democrats said they believe people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 should continue to wear masks in public.

The new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey released last week said 49 percent of American adults believe fully vaccinated individuals should keep wearing their mask.

The same survey also said 50 percent of Americans believe America is winning the war against COVID-19, which is up from 28 percent on in January.

Fifty-eight percent of Americans expected they’ll be required to wear masks in public for at least another six months. Twenty-five percent expect mask mandates to last 18 months or longer.

While 75 percent of Democrats say fully vaccinated people should continue wearing masks in public, only 26 percent of Republicans and 41 percent of unaffiliated voters agree.

Despite their so-called confidence in America beating COVID-19 right now, 67 percent of Democrats believe Americans will be required to wear masks in public for at least six more months.

Fifty-four percent of women believe people who have been fully vaccinated should continue wearing masks in public compared to 43 percent of men.
