EDITOR NOTE: According to a Rasmussen Report survey, 60% of American voters who had participated believe that China should foot the bill for importing the COVID pandemic. What President Trump describes as “a very Chinese virus,” do you believe that China should be liable for the damages of “Kung Flu” (his language), considering that COVID originated from well within its sovereign territory? Certainly, we can speculate that China bears responsibility for not warning the world earlier than it did (and for silencing those who warned about the pandemic early on).
More voters than ever consider China an enemy and think the Asian giant should pick up the tab for at least some of the global costs of the coronavirus.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 60% of Likely U.S. Voters now think China should pay at least some of the financial costs that have resulted from the global transmission of the coronavirus which originated in a Chinese city. That’s up from 42% when Rasmussen Reports first asked this question in mid-March and 53% in late July. Only 24% believe China should not be made to pay some of these costs, while 16% are undecided.
