After nearly three months out of office, former President Donald Trump still holds significant influence over Republican voters' medical decisions " the same voters who are most likely to say they will not be vaccinated against the coronavirus. A The Economist/YouGov Poll released this week asked respondents "How much do you trust medical advice from each of the following officials?" Trump was by far the least trusted among all respondents, at just 29 percent, including 6 percent of Democrats and 29 percent of Independents. But among Republicans, a whopping 66 percent said they trust Trump "a lot" or "somewhat" for medical advice. Respondents were also asked "When a coronavirus vaccine becomes available to you, will you get vaccinated?" Among all respondents, 24 percent responded "no," including 8 percent of Democrats, 29 percent of Independents, and 40 percent of Republicans.

I stand corrected. Perhaps I should've said common medical knowledge among the laity is poor.

The Dems should try creeping Medicare for all by starting with an option to enroll at 55 for a fee. Then 45 ...

It would help elevate the spike in Cancers for 65 year olds caused by people waiting for Medicare before getting their limos checked.

Then they should all listen to him.

Give them all hydroxychloroquine to drink and shoot them with a syringe full of bleach.

The world will be a better place afterwards.

These people are ignorant and superstitious. It's clear that it's only been we civilized people who provided them lifelines. Now that they've stupidly cut those lines a lot of them will, and have, die.

I wonder if Trump told these people to eat ---- how many would?

It would be nice if we could just isolate them all in one part of the US, cut off aid to them and let it all sort itself out.
