Nearly three-quarters of voters for former President Donald Trump say President Joe Biden's chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci "hurt America" more than he helped during the COVID-19 pandemic, a new poll showed.

A Yahoo! News/YouGov survey posted by Mediaite Thursday showed among all respondents, 46% said Fauci — the lead infectious disease expert on coronavirus task forces under both the Trump and Biden administrations — "helped America more than he hurt America," 30% said the opposite and 24% weren't sure.

Among GOP respondents, 61% said Fauci hurt America, while 22% said he helped and 18% were unsure.

Among Trump voters, 71% said Fauci hurt America.

Among people who haven't been vaccinated against COVID-19, 22% say Fauci helped, 43% say he hurt America, 35% weren't sure.

In other findings, the poll showed:

  • 34% says most Americans are underestimating the risks of the virus; the same percentage believe Americans are behaving appropriately; 23% say most Americans are overreacting to the risks. 
  • 20% of respondents says they'll "never" take the COVID-19 vaccination.
  • 57% says they've been vaccinated, while those who said they would "never" get the vaccine make up 48% of the respondents who haven't been vaccinated. 
  • 12% plan to get vaccinated as soon as they can, 20% say they'll wait to see what happens to others, and 20% are "not sure."

The threshold for achieving "herd immunity" is around 80%.

A report released last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines are 94% effective in preventing symptomatic COVID-19 — evidence the vaccine works as well as clinical trials result promised.
