    At least 30 per cent of Republicans may never get a Covid-19 vaccine and only one per cent will get inoculated as soon as possible, according to a new poll by the Monmouth University released on Wednesday.

    This was in sharp contrast with Democrats — only two per cent said they were likely to never get the jab.

    About 54 per cent Republicans confirmed that they have received the Covid-19 vaccine, while a whopping 96 per cent Democrats said they are already vaccinated, the poll confirmed.

    _________________________________

    There couldn't be more blatant evidence that the Conservatives' anti-science rhetoric is killing people.

    And this poll also expresses the huge education gap between the right and the left in this country.

    Unfortunately, it needed a pandemic to be so cruelly exposed.

    Education is truly the Republicans' kryptonite.

    Thoughts ?

    What’s your point? Are you saying the unvaccinated are uneducated morons? If so then what are you so worried about their health for?

    The only science the left knows is only that that is spoon fed to them... And even then, it's pseudoscience and propaganda. How about some of the new data coming out about potential long term effects of the vaccines?

    Myocarditis and Pericarditis Following Vaccination with COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines in Ontario: December 13, 2020 to September 4, 2021

    And why is the FDA holding FOIA for at least 50 years on the vaccine data? We should have immediate access to this data. Not parsed over 50+ years...

    Just uneducated.

    And I'm not worried about their health as long as they take responsibility for their choice.

    As a percentage, you do realize the largest group revolving around vaccine hesitancy is that of the black and Latino community. But hey, let's not let facts get into the way of going all "Orange man bad"... You go get em tiger!

    Yeah, I've had those thoughts from time to time... I'm not a religious person, but for those that are, you have to wonder if this is God's plan to eliminate some of his mistakes...

    The funny part is that it's pretty much a lock most of the people saying they'll never get the COVID vaccines have received vaccines in the past for schooling, military, or both... I hope those idiots give their parents hell for being good parents...

    Trump gets booed when he talks about vaccination in his rallies.

    This poll and so many others show that Republicans are susceptible to anti-science rhetoric.

    96% of Democrats and 54% of Republicans are vaccinated.

    The gap is huge.

    Pure analytics right there. Let's gauge vaccine hesitancy based upon the "boo" decibels at a rally.

    The results of this survey (and so many others) are clear.

    Are you denying the results?

    I'm also curious why Pfizer and Moderna have total immunity from liability if something unintentionally goes wrong with their vaccines. I just got the booster and it sucked. Totally in bed for 24 hours after and felt like crap for another 24.

    Thoughts you ask?

    1) When I want my new hard hitting, and brutally honest and not biased, I go to yahoo.com :roflol:

    2) There is no mention in the article you posted that mentions conservative anti-science killing people or death at all.

    3) In my area the lowest percent of unvaccinated are Dems. Black Dems. Can you spin that?

    You seem unable to tell the difference between science and science fiction, and that is easily understood because just like the rest of us, you have been bombarded with falsehoods and misinformation regarding the purpose of these shots.

    You don't realize WHO and CDC have been changing definitions since this whole cluster**** was started. You have been conditioned to believe that the shots are vaccines when they are not.

    Yes, it sucked. The Moderna kicked my butt for a day. But, it beats a week or month hooked up to a breathing machine in the hospital………or a dirt nap.

    Are you saying the red states are occupied mostly by blacks and latinos? It seems they're the states with the highest mortality rate. And yes, orange man is very bad.

    Just remember while you’re here busy talking down the uneducated they’re out there right now delivering goods to your local stores, out in the cold producing the gas for your furnace and the fuel for your car, growing and raising food that ends up on your table.

    You’re demeaning them but guarantee you would never survive with out them. They would likely survive without you.

    Where did I ever make such a claim? Seems you lost yourself in the weeds there.

    And your above analysis.. Was this pulled from your lower nether regions per chance or this is what CNN told you?

    You sound like a great person. My wife has not been jabbed by the shots. I have. She got COVID and I didn’t. I wasn’t even worried about getting it. Kissed her and all. I never got it, so it stands to reason that those who are crying about the unvaccinated while being vaccinated are equally as worthless for fear mongering.

    I want as many Americans as possible to have access to higher education.

    The more educated people are, the more likely they are to vote Democratic and also to escape the pandemic.

    The Republicans want the exact opposite.

    I would even say that keeping Americans ignorant is part of their political agenda.

    They like to blame the mutations on black and brown people but most are not Republicans.

    I've always found it bizarre that they hold themselves up to be everyone's Morality Police (ie. abortion, divorce, etc.) but worship one of the most unethical, immoral, idiotic, selfish, boorish people on the planet.

    So, they can tell a woman she has to keep a pregnancy she does not want and the result is PERMANENT, while wearing a mask, socially distancing causes them to push back and both of those are TEMPORARY measures. Even the vaccine is looking like it has a short half-life. None of those things require providing for another human being for at least 18 years.

    I'm not partisan at all but I've given up on their double-standards. It's sickening.
