Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Morning Consult has surveyed thousands of Americans every week to gauge the effects of the coronavirus on public opinion and behaviors across a wide range of categories, from politics and economics to shopping and dining. As the country transitions into a “new normal,” Morning Consult continues to closely monitor how American attitudes are shifting in these later stages of the pandemic.
The Views on the Pandemic tracker examines how the public feels about COVID-19’s continuing impacts on health, politics and the economy by examining attitudes toward vaccines, political and institutional handling of the coronavirus, economic impacts of the pandemic and more.
This tracker is updated monthly alongside Return to Normal: Consumer Comfort, which monitors the public’s comfort engaging in various socializing, entertainment and travel activities.
The historical Return to Normal tracking pages are available in full here.
