During President Donald J. Trump’s rally to a huge crowd of Patriots in Ohio last week, the loudest applause came from his comment about Coronavirus.
A new national survey disclosed that 56% of all American voters believe it is likely that the Chinese government intentionally created the coronavirus as a biological weapon. Only twenty-nine percent (29%) disagree, and 16% are not certain.
Seventy-four percent (74%) of Republicans think it’s likely that the coronavirus was developed intentionally. Independent voters, by a 45% to 30% margin, agree. Democrats are more evenly divided with 43% saying it’s likely the virus was intentionally created, while 42% consider that unlikely.
Almost exactly, fifty-seven percent (57%) of voters think it’s likely that U.S. government officials actively tried to cover up the possibility that COVID-19 was created in a Wuhan, China, laboratory. The survey found that only 26% consider it unlikely, and 17% are not sure.
The Rassmussen poll indicates seventy-four percent (74%) of Republicans consider a cover-up to be somewhat likely. Independent voters, by a 52% to 22% margin, tend to agree. Almost half of Democrats, 45%, believe U.S. government officials may have actively engaged in a cover-up, while 39% disagree.
