The poll, conducted March 27-30 on behalf of Public Agenda and USA TODAY, surveyed U.S. adults as a part of the Hidden Common Ground initiative, which aims to examine issues that divide America along with potential solutions. The online poll has a credibility interval, akin to a margin of error, of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
Americans choose saving lives over the health of the US economy
Clinton is among the majority (72%)of respondents who believe the government's priority should be saving lives by stopping the spread of the virus, as opposed to sparing the economy.

Only about 1 in 5 said the government's main priority should be saving the economy.

What a lot of people may not realize is that it isn't an "either-or" proposition. A collapsed economy and the poverty that ensues will create huge numbers of deaths. And further, a ruined economy will make it near impossible to get a cure for coronavirus or other future pestilences, as the people will be living at a subsistence level.

How many people think you can actually do both?

This survey provides false alternatives. If you don't reclaim and ensure the health of your economy, inevitably the health of your citizens will degrade to the point of death, slowly or quickly. Whether it be falling into addictions, domestic violence, stress/anger issues that generate violence, heart and other conditions.

Nations need to prosper, you don't reward communists for their virus by becoming communist yourself.

Polls are how the elites move public opinion rather than a measure of public opinion.

Elections are just too messy for them and the leaders we produce through such elections are supposed to, in the minds of the media, follow polls rather than lead. In other words our elected leaders should take orders from the media elites.

Do these people think letting the economy crash will have no negative impact or cost lives just curious if they consider that. It's rather sad that we have become such an either or society and that we now believe we can't try and accomplish both keeping people safe and saving the economy.
It's not going to crash. The next two stimulus packages will be half a trillion in direct payments to people, and universal health care.

And not one dime for corporations or tax cuts of any kind.

I just hope Trumkinland will be able to cope with the fact non whites will be getting money from the government.

Of course my challenge to all of them about becoming Maga Martyrs, and sacrificing themselves for the cause is still open.

Defeating the Pathogen as quickly as possible will actually help the economy more than hurt it. We don't want to repeat all the mistakes of the Spanish Flu in 1918. Back in 1918, San Francisco shut down and saved lives and the benefits were huge. The Flu was unable to really spread in San Francisco. By contrast Philadelphia held parades and did nothing and suffered tens of thousands of deaths. Bodies lying in the street and in homes. Children starving to death because their parents were dead and no one would come near them. Its sad were in the shape were in now given that the world has had 102 years to prepare for the next major pandemic. 102 years later and were back to dead bodies stacking up outside hospitals and people wearing masks. So little progress after so much time. We think were an advanced society, but in many ways were still stuck in the middle ages.

Yes, no focus on slowing the curve. Because as we've been advised by an Orange Turd, MILLIONS would be committing suicide! :icon_rolleyes:

What type of business is it and what U.S. state is it located in? 41 U.S. states have a "stay at home policy" unless you work in a business that is deemed essential by the government.
