Coronavirus upstages election as Americans heed pandemic, not politics: Report

President Trump and Democratic presidential hopeful Joseph R. Biden now have an sudden competitor. The presidential election is now enjoying second fiddle to the coronavirus on the general public stage, based on new analysis. Americans are extra within the pandemic than politics.

A Pew Research Center report reveals that 88% of U.S. adults are paying shut consideration to information of the coronavirus pandemic whereas 52% are following information of the presidential contenders.

There isn’t any partisan variations. Identical numbers of Republicans and Democrats mirror these findings. The information has actually gone viral.

“The findings underscore the extent to which the pandemic has come to dominate media coverage and public attention,” wrote analyst Mark Jurkowitz.

“When asked if it is personally important to receive messages and statements relating to the election and other important issues from the Trump and Biden campaigns themselves, fewer than half (44%) of Americans say it is very important or somewhat important. A slight majority (55%) say it is not too important or not at all important,” Mr. Jurkowitz mentioned.

The outcomes are based mostly on an evaluation of an Pew Research Center American Trends survey of 10,139 U.S. adults carried out April 20-26 and launched Monday.
