It was never politically expedient. Especially for the 600,000 Americans that died from it.

Although a record-high 89% of Americans now say the coronavirus situation is improving, most are not yet ready to declare the pandemic over in the U.S. More than twice as many think the pandemic is not yet over (71%) than think it is over (29%). Republicans are far more likely than Democrats to say the pandemic is over, but significant differences also exist by gender, age and region of the country.

GALLUP PANEL, JUN. 14-20, 2021

96 percent of any group to agreeing on anything is astounding. Ever more so when you consider we have a Democratic president.

In recent years somewhat of a deal has been made of studies that show Republicans and conservatives are more fearful of things. What does this say about Democrats fear, if it says anything?

Assuming the democrats internal polling has been showing the same thing is that why Democratic politicians until recently have been more reluctant to lift restrictions? Or is it the Democratic politicians more negative take on COVID causing fear among their supporters? Even if the latter is the case 96 percent?

Something(s) weird is going on here.

Why is something scientific (epidemological in this case) made political and presented as an opinion poll?
Should we do similar polls about rocket designs, quantum chemistry and locations of bauxite deposits?

Apparently, Democrats are much more aware that epidemies come in waves and the world is not just USA.

I have been exposed to the virus a few times, and my tests have always come back negative.

Pass the vinegar and salt, please...

"All Things Considered", 'Conservative Leaning
Folks' Will Be More Cautious in Conserving Life

If Not For A Spoon-Fed Diet

From Birth in Some

Areas Believing

After

Death is

Worth More Than Life;

Just in case anyone wonders

Why Asian Non-Christians are More Likely to Wear A Mask...

Oh Yeah And Take the Vaccine for the One Life They Treasure now...

This is Common
Sense; Those

Who Conserve

After Death Over Life Now

Don't Exactly Win the Game

of Life Usually As Whole in SCaRCiTY oF NoW

So Many Elements of This Do Poison Life; This
Religion of Worshipping After Life More Than Life Now

Conserving

A Special

Place in A Dirt Nap

Or 'Promise on 5th Avenue';

Part of the Same Beast of that Belief
in After Death More Valuable than Life Now...

Other than That There is All Existence to Kiss Now;

Happy 'International Kissing Day'; Go Kiss A Flower Live Now Safer
And Vaccinated From Delta Variant Pandemics That Will Kill Ya one Life Dead...

Yes, Yes, i know...

Feel... Sense IT

i Already Sing to

The Choir From the

Back Pew Every Sunday Morning...

Yet there Was that Day When The Priest

Said What Garment of Love to Wear to A

Bridegroom's Wedding; HAha, i Yelled Out Mask

Louder Than A Quick Gunshot Blast; Oh the

Wrath;

Oh the

Wrath

Dead

Ears of
Ignorance Still Sing...

Most All Unmasked Now
Less than 35 Percent

Vaccinated Fully in

Church, Likely Less;

It's True in 'Trump Town
USA', Half the Folks Acted Like

No Pandemic Ever Existed At all...

And the Local Officials Allowed it by Majority of

Ignorant Rule; Some of them Are Dead; Just Plain Dead Now...

Yet True, They Believed 'Trump' Held 'the Pearly Gates' Open for 'Sheep'...

'Burning As Goats', Burning As Goats, They Fell Down Deep in Fall oF All Lies...

And They Still Do...

Why?

For They

Believe After

Death Is preferable to Life....

Waiting on 'Godot' To Save Their Death....

The Root of this Problem Lies Behind Temple Doors Worshipping After Death...

It's Not Much Different than 'Beneath the Planet of the Apes' At 'That Mass Choir' too

me and

'Nova'

And Her

Look of WTF

is Going on 'Hear'

Too, She Doesn't have to
Say Much; She's Smart Enough to See 'the Hairless Ape lies'...

Listen, Folks, People Will Bond and Bind Over Anything That
Works; Pleasure or Pain, Misery or Suffering Still to Kingdom Come...

Amazingly, This Go around Folks Are 'Conservatively Bonding' Over A Deadly Pandemic

In Same Damn Apocalyptic Hopes of Death, "Bless the Holy Fallout", Same Dam Story Again...

i Was one of the

Fortunate ones

in 1968,

i understood

the Deeper Meaning

of 'The Story' At Age 8...

It iS A Deadly Story; A Very Deadly Story For All Stuff Life Now...

'Bless the Holy Fall-out'; Such a Sad, Sad, Dead Commentary on the Human Species...

True, There

Are Better

Ways of Social
Animal Group Hobbies...

Like Bowling in Leagues...
At Least the Ultimate Goal
is Only Knocking 10 Pins Down Now....

What a Beautiful

Religion Bowling

Still Is Honored to Serve

it UP For Almost Two Decades Hehe at Work..:)

False. It is about control and brainwashing the public. From the looks of most of the comments on this thread, I'd say it has been wildly successful.

Well, speaking of brainwashing, you might be onto something, even though I am not sure you have made the right positive identification...

My timing on creating this thread right as the Delta variant started to explode was exquisite(LOL).

Sorry, I messed up the quote I was responding to. I went back and corrected my original post.
I take "It has Never been about a virus" to be a ridiculous statement. And by definition, deserves ridicule.
