A new survey by pollster Rasmussen Reports said America’s top infectious disease doctor, Anthony Fauci has expended most of his credibility amongst his fellow, adult citizens.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 41% of American Adults now have a favorable impression of Dr. Fauci, down from 44% in August,” the survey found.
“Forty-five percent (45%) now have an unfavorable impression of Fauci, up from 42% who had a negative view of him in August,” it continued. “Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure.”
The survey of 1,000 adult Americans was competed in early October.
Fauci remains a controversial figure, often changing direction and confusing Americans about how they are supposed to react to COVID-19.
The White House COVID czar recently told interviewers that is was too early to tell if Christmas this year could be spent with families, spawning widespread verbal condemnation.
“In the meanwhile, politicians and public figures continue to gather together—often unmasked—for gala events and rallies,” said the National Pulse.
“Most sporting venues in the United States are also full to capacity most weekends, with Joe Biden recently attending the Congressional baseball game in Washington, D.C., again, unmasked,” it noted.
The survey results weren’t the first blow to Fauci’s reputation this week.
The Disney release this week of a documentary on Fauci, called FAUCI, echoed the results of the Rasmussen survey among the general public.
Initially Rotten Tomatoes hid the audience score, but after being criticized by the internet, relented to show a total score of just 4% from the audience.
“As of Tuesday morning,” said the Western Journal, “the audience rating has dipped to 2 percent.”
Perhaps Fauci got the message. Over the weekend he gave the go-ahead for trick-or-treats on Halloween.
“You can get out there … and enjoy it,” Fauci said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” about Halloween according to Fox News.
“I mean, this is a time that children love,” he continued. “It’s a very important part of the year for children. I know my children enjoy it.”
