Poll: Vast Majority Unfazed By Omicron, Oppose Mandates

A vast majority of Americans oppose mandates or restrictions for the Omicron variant, according to a poll released Wednesday.

The poll, which was conducted by Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group, found that 69 percent of Americans “say no new mandates or restrictions are required for the Omicron variant of COVID-19.” That number includes 67 percent of independents, 86 percent of Republicans, and 54 percent of Democrats.

Of those surveyed, 38 percent oppose new mandates or restrictions “regardless of [the] risk from Omicron,” while 31 percent say “Omicron is not a serious health risk.” Only 30 percent say Omicron is a serious risk that warrants additional mandates and restrictions.
