New polling that gathered data on vaccination rates by preferred news source may have found the single most significant reason why so many Republicans are risking their lives for no good reason.
Vaccination rates per this poll . . .
All adults 70% (Close to CDC reports)
Fox News Viewers 62%
MSNBC Viewers 83%
Network News Viewers 79%
What makes these findings even worse is that the Fox News audience is significantly older than average and should therefore have the highest and not the lowest vaccination rates.
It has been shown many times before that Fox News viewers end up misinformed on almost every subject so this result is not all that surprising. What the poll cannot answer is which comes first – The Ignorance or the Fox News preference? I think it is the later. Watching Fox News makes people ignorant. Or worse, they “know” things that are simply not true – in this case that vaccines will harm you.
