Rasmussen Reports Poll Finds Most Voters Disagree With Door-To-Door Vax Push

Most voters don’t like President Joe Biden’s reported plan of going door-to-door to get people vaccinated against COVID-19, a new poll shows.

A telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports found 53% of likely voters think the door-to-door approach is a bad one, compared with 37% who think it's a good idea. Of those questioned, 71% said they’d gotten vaccinated.

The poll’s margin of error was plus or minus three percentage points.

Here’s a breakdown:

—57% of Democrats think it’s a good idea for officials to go “door to door; 20% of Republicans say the same and 33% of independents agree.

  • 74% of Republicans, 56% of unaffiliated voters and 31% of Democrats think the “door-to-door” vaccine push is a bad idea.
  • 43% of voters say it should be legal for employers to require workers to get vaccinated against COVID-19; 40% say it should not be legal.
  • 56% of Democrats believe it should be legal for for employers to require the COVID-19 vaccine; 34% of Republicans and 36% of unaffiliated voters agree.
  • 79% of Democrats, 68% of Republicans and 64% of independents say they’ve already gotten the vaccine.

Biden earlier this month declared "now we need to go to community-by-community, neighborhood-by-neighborhood, and oftentimes, door-to-door — literally knocking on doors — to get help to the remaining people” who need to be vaccinated.

The grassroots component of the vaccination campaign has been in operation since April, when supplies of shots started to outpace demand. It was outlined and funded by Congress in the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill passed in March and overwhelmingly is carried out by local officials and private sector workers and volunteers.

But there was almost immediate pushback.

"The Biden Administration wants to knock on your door to see if you’re vaccinated,” tweeted Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan. “What’s next? Knocking on your door to see if you own a gun?”

Another recent poll found Americans who haven’t gotten a COVID-19 shot aren’t likely to change their mind about it.

A Gallup poll released in June showed that 78% of adults who don't plan to be vaccinated said they're unlikely to change their plans, and 58% said they are "not likely at all" to change their minds. 

Further, one in five adults who are reluctant to get a shot say they are open to reconsidering their stance, but just 2% said they are "very likely" to get a shot and 19% are "somewhat likely" to be vaccinated, that survey showed.

More than half those polled in the Gallup survey, at 53%, said they worry about people who are refusing a vaccine, while 25% say they're "very worried" about the rate of hesitancy.
