Poll: Voters much more likely to trust family, Fauci than Trump on vaccine

Only 14 percent of voters said they would be more likely to take a coronavirus vaccine if President Donald Trump recommended it, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.

Voters were far more likely to say they’d take a vaccine based on the advice of their family (46 percent), the CDC (43 percent) or the government’s top infectious disease expert, Anthony Fauci (43 percent). One-third said they would be more likely to get vaccinated if the World Health Organization encouraged Americans to do so.

“Kitchen table conversations will be critical in the effort to get Americans vaccinated against COVID-19 when one becomes available. Nearly half of voters would be more likely to get vaccinated against the virus if their family encouraged them to do so,” said Kyle Dropp, co-founder and chief research officer at Morning Consult.
