Democrats are more likely than Republicans to say they would get a coronavirus vaccine or already have, and the gap between the parties has grown wider in recent months. Around eight-in-ten Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents (83%) said in February they would definitely or probably get a vaccine or that they already had received at least one dose. A much smaller majority of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (56%) said the same. That 27 percentage point gap between Democrats and Republicans was wider than the gap measured at various points in 2020.
Throughout the pandemic, Republicans have been far less likely than Democrats to see the coronavirus outbreak as a major threat to public health. In February 2021, 41% of Republicans described COVID-19 that way, compared with 82% of Democrats. Americans who are less inclined to see the virus as a major public health threat are also less inclined to get a coronavirus vaccine.
В теории вроде бы прогрессисты как раз должны более критически мыслить - но вот нет :)
В РФ видимо эту нишу (хождения строем за "авторитетами") занимают либералы и навальнисты - гордые своей "неконформностью"
