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.
