Poll: U.S. Life Becomes Quasi-Normal as Virus Fears Fade

For the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, a majority of Americans believe that is better for people to resume their normal lives and move on.


“As a sense of normalcy returns, Americans have become less likely to believe that the best advice for healthy people during the pandemic is to stay home to help prevent the spread of the virus, dropping from 91% in March 2020 to 67% at the start of this year to 44% now. In fact, for the first time in Gallup’s COVID tracking, a majority (56%) say the better advice is for people to live their normal lives as much as possible.

As seen previously, there is a substantial partisan divide on the advice question, with 87% of Republicans versus 64% of independents and 29% of Democrats recommending people should strive to lead their normal lives. Conversely, 71% of Democrats believe people should stay home as much as possible, although this is down from 85% in April. …”

Not everyone agrees though.

Republicans and Independents have been over COVID since March. 71% of Democrats still believe that people “should stay home as much as possible.” Presumably, they continue to feel this way long after being vaccinated. They virtue signal about “getting jabbed” but don’t act like it works.

Note: I’ve heard that shitlibs have these signs out in their yards in their wealthy suburbs back East. The people who believe in “science” also insist on wearing masks outside after being vaccinated in summer weather and regardless of the new CDC guidelines on the issues.

  1. It had nothing to do with the so called virus, it had to do with spreading fear and controlling people lives. It still is.

  2. “71% of Democrats think healthy people should continue to stay home”

    I’m okay with it if 71% of Democrats stay at home, including on election days.

  3. It wasn’t the Ching Chong bug that worried me, it was the way most people mindlessly submitted to the government and media generated fear of it.

    • I would mindlessly submit to a government that supports and promotes the health, well-being and prosperity of its White citizenry – cough – /Germany in the 30s/ – cough.

  4. If there was a real pandemic those maskholes would be the first to die. This scamdemic has brought out the absolute worst in people.

  5. Those stupid yard signs are fairly common in the wealthy shitlib neighborhoods of the Heights and Hillcrest here in Little Rock.

  6. Hunter,

    Those signs are all over the privileged areas here in the Seattle area. Always a sign of a well to do neighborhood that doesn’t (yet) suffer the consequences of those policies.

    • Never seen such a sign around here, northern Appalachia.

      There are still plenty of Trump signs and flags in yards and even some businesses, in these very Republican counties. In households with Trump signs there are generally no vaccinations, and most never wore masks.

  7. But Science IS real. Unscientific and anti-scientific fantasies, promoted by “alternative” capitalist media, that the virus is not very harmful, or that it does not even exist, are NOT real.

    A PUBLIC health system, free for all the people, that would be capable of controlling and eradicating the virus cannot exist under capitalism, which is focused on removing all barriers to maximum profit-making by big business and requires that workers learn to accept mass fatality in a pandemic, poor health care and shortened lives as perfectly normal and right.

    Things are not “going back to normal” in reality, only in fantasy and propaganda.

    • The United States exaggerates the vaccination rate (percentage) to make workers feel comfortable, not counting those less than 18 years of age, the undocumented millions and other categories from the total.

      In reality, much less than half of the U.S. population has been fully vaccinated, while new variants poorly controlled by the vaccines are continuing to appear and spread, and the vaccine’s efficacy for even the common strain for which it was designed begins to ebb or disappear after six months. The masses will pay very dearly for letting King Usury rule over them.

  8. This is a joke, right? “Coronavirus” is a (large) family of virii, and it is neither possible, nor desirable, to wipe them out. As for being harmful, it mostly kills 80 and 90 year olds.

    • Ridiculous! Eradicate ONE virus, not all relatives. Eradication, like smallpox was eradicated, isn’t a joke. “Herd immunity” is a very bad joke.

  9. Smallpox has a mortality rate of around 30%. Coronavirus is far below 1%. It’s really not the same thing.
