Most Americans Say FDA Will Rush COVID-19 Vaccine Because of Politics: Poll

Roughly 62 percent of Americans believe political pressure from the Trump administration will cause the Food and Drug Administration to expedite approval of a coronavirus vaccine before Election Day, a new poll found.

The poll, conducted the Kaiser Family Foundation between Aug. 28 and Sept. 3, found 85 percent of Democrats, 61 percent of independents and 35 percent of Republicans, believe the FDA will give into President Trump and approve a COVID-19 vaccine before it is safe and effective, CNN reported.

Recently, the Trump administration said a vaccine could be ready by November and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has asked states to prepare for distribution.

The polls said women more than men — 70 percent to 55 percent — are concerned the FDA would rush approval and 54 percent said if a vaccine was ready before the election, they would not take it but 42 percent said they would. However, 81 percent said they don’t expect a vaccine to be ready by Nov. 3, which is Election Day.
