57% of Voters Want CDC Investigated: Rasmussen Survey
We have come a long way!
Good news! Rasmussen Reports released results of a survey of likely US voters. It turns out that 57% of likely voters want the CDC investigated by Congress on “how the CDC dealt with issues of COVID-19 vaccine safety”.
Thanks to my paid subscribers, I have a $199 platinum subscription to Rasmussen Reports, and because of this subscription, I received a notification and have full access to the demographic details.
Seventy percent (70%) of Republicans, 48% of Democrats and 54% of unaffiliated voters say Congress should investigate how the CDC dealt with issues of COVID-19 vaccine safety. Forty percent (40%) of Democrats, 20% of Republicans and 31% of unaffiliated voters oppose a congressional investigation of the CDC.
Majorities of every racial category – 56% of whites, 51% of black voters and 66% of other minorities – believe Congress should investigate the CDC’s handling of vaccine safety.
Some interesting findings from the platinum-only part:
More males than females have absolute trust in the CDC: 33% of males say it is very likely that “the CDC provided the public with complete safety information,” whereas only 25% of females say so. This may reflect a general tendency of males towards overconfidence rather than a gender-specific opinion on the CDC.
More Democrats than Republicans have absolute trust in the CDC: 44% of Democrats say it is very likely that “the CDC provided the public with complete safety information,” whereas only 25% of Republicans say so.
Again, this may reflect a general tendency of Democrats to trust the administration representing their party vs. the tendency of Republicans not to trust the government controlled by the Democrats.
Being vaccine-skeptic, historically, has not been strongly political.
In any case, the total percentage of people who DO want the CDC to face investigation is 57%. That’s nice!
Paradoxically, rich people do NOT want the CDC to be investigated:
While 73% of conservatives want the CDC investigated, only 34% of liberals want the same.
This Poll Does Not Mean The Public Supports #Nuremberg2
Do not read too much into this poll.
I would venture to guess that most people who favor the investigation are not very hostile to the CDC. Most of them probably hope to find out what happened and are not driven by feelings of retribution or revenge.
Nevertheless, this is a big finding and victory for those questioning the Covid vaccines. We changed the minds of the majority of the public! Public opinion has changed and now supports investigations. That’s progress.
Will investigations and committees get to the bottom of what happened? Or will they whitewash everything and conclude that “mistakes were made”?
Since Republicans were on the Covid vaccine gravy train and voted for many “Warp Speed” measures, I would guess the investigation will NOT be very thorough.
This is why, in my opinion, we should NOT rush investigations, and it is better to wait. Rushing them will likely sweep the real crimes under the rug. Plus, it is not yet clear what the long-term consequences of Covid vaccination are. It is also not known who created Sars-Cov-2 and why.
After the hurried sham investigations conclude, it would be easier to distract the public with another news cycle story.
