A new Cygnal poll commissioned for Alabama Daily News (ADN) reveals a majority of Alabama Republicans trust the COVID-19 vaccines and are concerned about the delta variant currently spreading across the state. A full 57.9% said they trust the vaccines while 24.8% said they do not trust them.
Asked how concerned they were about the delta variant of COVID-19, 62% said they were concerned while 36.5% said they were not concerned and 1.5% said they were unsure.
The poll also tested Alabama Republican primary voters’ opinions on health care generally and Medicaid more specifically. Asked how important it is that all Alabamians have access to quality health care, 78.2% said it was important, including 53.2% saying it is very important.
The survey, commissioned by Alabama Daily News and conducted by Cygnal, took place August 17-18 among 600 likely Republican primary voters and has a margin of error of +/- 4.0%.
