RE: USA Voter Survey: Key Findings

A recent survey of U.S. voters nationwide regarding pandemic related issues found three key findings among both Republicans and conservative voters: 

  1. Both Republicans and conservatives want the federal government to fund programs to prevent future pandemics.

Nearly two out of every three Republican and conservative voters (64% each) wants the federal government to develop a new program to fund efforts to prevent future pandemics. Additionally, a full 56% of Republicans and 57% of conservatives support using federal dollars to speed up the development of American medical innovations such as vaccines and other treatments in order to better prevent future pandemics.

  • Republicans and conservatives want Operation Warp Speed to also focus on preventing future pandemics.

When it comes to pandemic planning, an identical 58% of Republicans and 58% of conservatives support sending unspent federal coronavirus funds to the Operation Warp Speed program for development of new programs to prevent future pandemics.

In particular, both Republicans and conservatives cite five major reasons why Operation Warp Speed should be tapped for unspent funds to prevent future pandemics:

  • It would make sure workplaces remain open so Americans won’t be laid off and can put food on the table (79% of Republicans and 81% of conservatives).
  • It will make sure Americans can go about their daily lives, doing things like going to work or out to eat at a restaurant, without government intervention (76% of Republicans and 75% of conservatives).
  • It will protect Americans from power-hungry bureaucrats like Anthony Fauci and others (72% of Republicans and 72% of conservatives).
  • It will help grow the economy by investing in American businesses that are leading the world in developing vaccines and treatments for the coronavirus (68% of Republicans and 68% of conservatives).
  • It will save taxpayer money down the road by stopping pandemics before they happen (65% of Republicans and 65% of conservatives).

Survey Methodology. The survey was conducted June 15, 2022, using online methodology among a representative sample of N=1,500 registered voters in the United States. The potential sampling error is plus or minus 3% at the 95% confidence level.
