It seems that average Americans have had enough of the Democratic Party and it’s attempts to put another mask mandate in place, as a new survey has revealed that only 41 percent of individuals feel the mandates on airlines should be extended while an almost identical percentage have said they won’t wear one.
So much conflicting information has been put out there concerning the efficacy of masks that it seems individual citizens would just rather toss them out and just go back to living a normal life.
The survey, the latest in a series charting the nation’s slow return from the March 2020 COVID-19 shutdown, said that just 41% feel it will be “necessary to extend the federal mandate that all airline passengers wear masks on all flights, past mid-September.” It was 50% in May.

Only 40 percent of folks said they would wear a mask “when in the presence of others.”
“Respondents from the Northeast (44%) and West (46%) are much more likely to wear facial coverings than those from the Midwest (30%) and South (38%). Democrats (51%) are nearly twice as likely as Republicans (27%) to wear masks,” the analysis said.
“Patience is growing thin among Americans being forced to comply with federal mask mandates,” said Ron Bonjean of ROKK Soultions. “As mask mandates begin to cover much of the country and our nation’s schools, it is likely that this is going to receive negative reaction, especially from those who are vaccinated.”
“Our tracking data has shown sentiment consistently trending away from supporting resumption of COVID-related restrictions or mandates,” Jon Last, who is serving as the president of Sports and Leisure Research Group went on to say.
Last went on to state that the new re-masking rules could inevitably lead to all sorts of problems.
“Yesterday’s revised CDC guidance could foreshadow increased tensions among an already highly politicized and volatile situation,” he stated.
