70% of Americans Now Say: We’ve Grown Tired of the CoronaVirus Talk & It’s Time to ‘Get On with Our Lives'

7 of 10 Americans are done with Big Government efforts at COVID crackdown

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — Two years into the COVID-19 CoronaVirus Pandemic, new Monmouth University Poll has found that a full 70% of Americans now say "they’ve grown tired of all the CoronaVirus talk, are equally tired of all the CoronaVirus clampdowns on freedoms, and also believe it’s high time to ‘get on’ with living.”

More significantly:
“Fully 7 in 10 Americans (70%) agree with the sentiment that ‘it’s time we accept that Covid is here to stay and we just need to get on with our lives’ – including 65% of those who say they have not been infected,” the Monmouth University Polling Institute wrote.

For most of America, COVID fatigue has settled in big time.
Those who say they are done with President Biden's mandates and other big government COVID-crackdowns include:
  • 89% of Republicans
  • 71% of independents; and
  • even 47% of Democrats
78% of Americans who’ve had the virus say society now needs to get used to the idea of living with COVID, and return to life as it was before the pandemic and big government’s imposition of lockdowns and mandates.

Americans are finally embracing what should have been policy from day one – “individual choice; individual decision-making; individual accountability; individual responsibility,” wrote Washington Times Columnist Cheryl  Chumley earlier this week on Feb. 1st.
“If you’re sick, stay home. If you’re not, live life as normal – as pre-Covid normal. And – if you’re a Democrat leave the rest of Americans alone.”

Why are Democrats so reluctant to return to pre-Covid norms?
“Here’s the answer,” Chumley wrote.

“Their entire life is wound up in winning political points; the coronavirus is just too juicy a tool to take away just yet. They still have a lot more power and control to squeeze from it.

"That, and they don’t believe in a sovereign God so much as an all-powerful government. So, when government says, ‘Jump,’ they not only ask, ‘How high?’ but demand everybody else in the world comply with the answer, as well.

"If leftists have their way, the coronavirus clampdowns will never leave.”

Meanwhile, a new analysis by Johns Hopkins University of several studies found lockdowns during the first Covid wave in the spring of 2020 only reduced Covid-19 mortality by .2% in the U.S. and Europe.
“While this meta-analysis concludes that lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted,” the researchers wrote.

“In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.”

The researchers – Johns Hopkins University economics professor Steve Hanke, Lund University economics professor Lars Jonung, and special advisor at Copenhagen’s Center for Political Studies Jonas Herby – analyzed the effects of lockdown measures such as school shutdowns, business closures, and mask mandates on Covid-19 deaths.
“We find little to no evidence that mandated lockdowns in Europe and the United States had a noticeable effect on COVID-19 mortality rates,” the researchers wrote.
