Sixty-five percent of voters say Americans should not lose their jobs if they reject vaccine mandates: Poll

·1 min read

A majority of voters do not believe a person should lose their job if that person rejects a vaccine mandate, according to a national poll.

Sixty-five percent of voters said "no" when asked, "Do you believe Americans should lose their jobs if they object to taking the COVID-19 vaccine?" according to a Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group survey.

Only 22% said Americans should lose their jobs, and 13% said they were unsure, according to the poll's analysis.

The sentiment that jobs should not be sacrificed for vaccine mandates is one shared across the aisle, the data showed.

About 84% of Republicans agreed with the opinion, as did 64% of independents and 48% of Democrats, according to the analysis.

"Washington, DC is making it clear the mandates are not about immunity but about conformity," said Mark Meckler, president of Convention of States Action, in a statement.

The government is continuously publishing information that contradicts the effectiveness of vaccines and the benefit of natural immunity, he added.

"[More] and more Americans are standing up against the forced vaccination of American workers," Meckler wrote. "The message here is clear: your livelihood should not be put at risk because you don't want the vaccine."
