New Poll Shows Americans are Largely Not Comfortable with Reopening the Nation

As many states around the nation begin to phase out their coronavirus precautions, a new poll seems to indicate that a majority of the American people aren’t yet on board.

In the coming days, we will be seeing a glut of protests springing up around the nation.  The events, colloquially known as “MAGA May Day”, will feature “drive in” protests in a number of major American cities where a certain portion of the population believes that the precautions taken to prevent the spread of coronavirus have now reached an inflection point, and that the law of diminishing returns will soon topple the American economy.

But these protesters are not the majority here in America, at least according to a new poll.

While a growing number of American households have lost jobs due to COVID-19, a majority of U.S. adults say they still are uncomfortable with reopening the country, according to the latest PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll.

Since March, the nation’s economy has taken a major hit from stay-at-home orders and other measures taken to slow the spread of COVID-19. As a result, roughly 26 million Americans filed first-time unemployment claims over five consecutive weeks in late March and April, according to the latest Department of Labor figures, making this one of the worst economic periods in the nation’s history.

Americans are split in how they view President Donald Trump’s handling of the economy, the poll suggested, with 50 percent of U.S. adults saying they approved and 48 percent that they disapproved with relatively little change since March when businesses around the country began to shutter. When asked about how the president has handled the coronavirus pandemic, 55 percent of Americans said they do not think he is doing a good job, up slightly from 49 percent in March.

So, is this a case of the squeaky wheel getting the grease, or has the mainstream media poisoned the public well to the point of hysteria?  The cost of finding the answer to that question could be more than we wish to pay.
