Democrats are Twice as Worried as Republicans about Coronavirus

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/13/us/politics/coronavirus-trump-polling.html


Afraid of Coronavirus? That Might Say Something About Your Politics

 

Polls show that how much voters worry about the outbreak depends on their political views, to a degree that’s unusual for a national crisis.  Welcome to Poll Watch, our weekly look at polling data and survey research on the candidates, voters and issues that will shape the 2020 election.

 

The coronavirus has been detected in more than 1,500 people across the United States. Public schools are closing and mass gatherings are being canceled. The National Collegiate Athletic Association called off its March Madness tournaments. The stock market took a historic plunge on Thursday.  And yet polls show that many voters still don’t see the virus as a serious threat. How much it worries you depends heavily on your personal politics — to a degree that’s not typical for a national crisis.  In a Quinnipiac University poll released this week, roughly six in 10 Republican voters nationwide said they were not especially concerned that the coronavirus would disrupt their lives. Two-thirds of Democratic voters said the opposite. All together, a slight majority of Americans expressed serious concern.

 

And Democratic voters were about twice as likely as Republicans to worry that they or someone they knew could catch the virus, the poll found. Sixty-three percent of Republican voters said they were relatively unconcerned.


Geography could play a role, as Democrats are more likely to live in cities, which are the sites of the worst outbreaks. But this partisan divide may well be linked to the kind of media people consume: While most newspapers and TV networks are treating the crisis as a dire threat and covering local governments’ efforts to contain it, many right-wing pundits are casting doubt on the virus’s risks and even its very existence — following a precedent set by President Trump, who has played down the danger of the virus.  On his nationally syndicated radio show, Sean Hannity wondered aloud on Wednesday if the coronavirus might be a “fraud” — just hours before Mr. Trump delivered a televised address about the virus.  During that speech, Mr. Trump announced a temporary partial ban on travel to the United States from Europe, but he stopped short of instituting nationwide limits on public gatherings or the kind of other federal guidance that some world leaders have given to their countries.

 

Over all, Americans are skeptical of Mr. Trump’s ability to confront the crisis. Last month, before the virus had spread throughout the United States, 62 percent of voters nationwide said they were not very confident in the federal government’s ability to deal with it effectively, according to a Fox News poll. Democratic voters were more than twice as likely as Republicans to say that they had no confidence at all.  For weeks, Mr. Trump oscillated between reassurances that he had the situation under control and suggestions that the whole issue was vastly overblown. Democrats, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the party’s leading presidential candidate, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., have called the situation grave and pushed for an aggressive response.  Mr. Biden and his leading rival, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, canceled in-person rallies this week and announced online campaign events in their stead. On Thursday, both candidates strongly criticized Mr. Trump’s address to the nation.  “Public fears are being compounded by pervasive lack of trust in this president,” Mr. Biden said. He offered his own plan to combat the crisis while condemning what he called Mr. Trump’s “colossal” failure to guarantee citizens access to coronavirus testing.

 

For Mr. Trump, the perception that he is a strong leader has been central to his appeal since the beginning of the 2016 presidential campaign. Gallup regularly asks Americans about their feelings about the president on a range of personal qualities. Out of the seven qualities Gallup tests, only one applies to Mr. Trump in the eyes of a majority of Americans: being a strong and decisive leader. When Mr. Biden attacks him over the coronavirus, he is taking a cut at Americans’ view of Mr. Trump as a forceful leader.  But the virus may have an effect on Mr. Trump’s public approval in ways that ripple far beyond his direct response to the crisis — particularly as the economy absorbs the severe impact of the virus.

 

Before the outbreak, Americans were more likely to describe themselves as satisfied with the way things were going in the country than at any point in the past 15 years, according to Gallup polling. Mr. Trump’s approval ratings have been in the mid- to high 40s in recent months — among the highest numbers of his presidency — lifted by the thriving economy. Americans generally tend to approve of his handling of the economy more than of his overall performance.  But as businesses close and the stock market craters, some persuadable voters may lose their main rationale for backing the president, even if they do not directly blame him for the virus’s spread.

Well, that explains this:

Poll workers and voters are not showing up in Illinois and Florida primaries due to coronavirus concerns.  Logically, that would be about twice as many Democrats as Republicans.  I hope that happens in November.

Ignoble donald supporters will deal with the switch of donald's talking points only a week or month after he flipped his talking point.     They appear to have a problem with short term memory:    

 

From yesterday ( 3/16/20202)   :    

At a news conference Tuesday, President Trump took pains to tell the public not only that the coronavirus crisis is serious — “We want to save a lot of lives. If you get too steep on that curve, you’re gonna lose a lotta lives" — but that he never downplayed it in the first place.

“I’ve always known this is a real — this is a pandemic," Trump said. “I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic."

 

After that appropriate time, they and their like minded and forgetful friends will say that donald was at the tip of the spear....forever.    Pathetic fools.

'Concerned' and 'worried' are two different things.

 

Of course Democrats are 'concerned' about Covid-19.  Most all but Fox addicts and cult-like trump supporters believe and understand the science in this. All one has to do is look at how this has spread in other countries, it is happening here. 

 

Steps should have been taken in by the POTUS (tRump) in January, getting test kits from the World Health Organization, when they were plentiful and cheap. Instead, all we got then from tRump was denial and inaction. Many more people in the United States will die as a direct result of that.

 

Why does the extreme right have such a problem comprehending reality?

Liberals should be worried because social distancing due to coronavirus will make it difficult for them to spread their philosophy like a disease.  As I have often said, liberals use peer pressure tactics that require close proximity to others.  Now, thanks to coronavirus, no more bleeping demonstrations, strikes and riots.  Maybe, even inner cities will eventually turn Republican.

 

Thank you coronavirus. Kiss this goodbye:

Great work aruzinsky - keep encouraging all those angry old white people (mostly Republicans) to ignore Science and the Nation's greatest problem (elected Republicans) will resolve itself.

 

Elect a Toad and expect things to get better? An amazing feat, impossible without Fox (or with the Fairness Doctrine) but GOPerLords pulled it off, with a little help from Putin. Looks like 2020 is going to make 1964 look like the good times for GOPers.

 

After proving himself a total disaster at managing a disaster, ToadPOTUS has now been exposed as attempting to BRIBE a German Pharma to produce a coronavirus vaccine AND only sell it to Americans. The senior mgmt of the company found out about the scam, FIRED their participant in the Trumpdeal and announced it would (like most of tRump's deals) NOT HAPPEN.

 

hOW MANY IMMORAL ACTS DOES IT TAKE TO CHANGE A GOPers MIND? We may never know, because so far 15,000 lies and 6 convictions haven't moved that needle.

You don't have to explain nouns and adjectives to me. Being "concered" is simply having "concern". 'Concern'  or 'being concerned' is not necessarily based on worry or fear and your own posted definition clearly showed that. That's why there are multiple usages and definitions of individual words. Learn the English language.  By the way, you just called me a liar, I won't use your "crybaby button" this time.

Very good post and question, Chas!  Just look at their reality though....POTUS has the virus under control; trump is the savior; Fox News is a reliable source of information simply because of their ratings; Reality?  Hardly....

Hey PanJ, a week ago, Trump was bragging about how he stopped the Cornona Virus from coming to the U.S. and his cult members believed him. Today, Trump is claiming he has the virus under control. Really?

Trump has gone bankrupt four times.  One of those was a casino. He certainly DOES have business experience but it is the kind of experience you would not look to have when hiring a manager of a McDonalds.

The only "magic wand" that trump thinks that he has, is the one that he seems to think with and always overrides any common sense approach...just ask Stormy! 
Repubs should be worried, trump is going down, and he won't hesitate to take all trump repubs with him...then again, they will reap the fruits of their efforts, now matter how spoiled that the fruit is!
