The majority of Americans agree: this is a foreign virus.
What does that mean?
The majority, 52% of Americans, agree with the statement: “COVID-19 is a foreign virus”. Agreement has remained strong for the past month.
Americans are increasingly likely to see the pandemic as exacerbated by globalization.
We are also increasingly likely to view the virus as the fault of other countries behaving recklessly.
These views differ across party lines. For instance, republicans are more likely to agree with the statement that “the virus demonstrates the dangers of the growing importance of China”.
Republicans are also more likely to agree with the statement: “The virus highlights problems with immigration.”
