And other interesting observations from a recent Gallup poll. You wouldn’t know it if you listened to the rabid anti-maskers, but people, some of us anyway, are still masking indoors:
Also, despite ‘everyone’ having contracted COVID, 65% of American adults think they have had COVID. Even if there are some cryptic cases, that’s not everyone. Again, despite the claims of some pundits, quite a few people have managed to avoid COVID. Meanwhile, Republicans tragically appear to be embracing long-term disability and the death of their elders:
All that said, I’m not really happy with the Gallup questions. In a sense, they seem loaded with the assumption that you’re either curtailing your activities across the board or else cutting loose. I’m avoiding indoor dining and being in indoors with people whom I don’t know without a mask, but I’m doing most other activities while masked: using mass transit, going to museums, working at an office, and shopping. I just wear a mask. There really isn’t a way for Gallup, based on the released questions, to assess that.
I also hope that, at some point, they release geographic data too: I would really like to see how different regions of the country are behaving.
Anyway, we haz dataz.
