• Return of European-Like COVID Lockdowns? Americans Say ‘No Way’

    Surge Summary: On the brink of more COVID-19 lockdowns in major European countries, a solid majority of Americans say “No” to the prospect of more of that approach here in America. The World Health Organization might now agree: one WHO figure says major lockdowns are not the way to go.

    For months we have heard over and over again how Europe and the rest of the world was handling the COVID pandemic so much better than we were.  Well, that’s not exactly the truth.

    BritainFranceGermany and Spain are on the verge of new lockdowns.  Why?  Because Europe’s coronavirus cases are now exceeding ours.

    Meanwhile, the World Health Organization is warning that lockdowns are not necessarily the best approach.  Dr. David Nabarro declared, “Lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never, ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer.”

    The American people get it.  By a whopping 24-point margin, 57%-to-33%, voters reject locking down the country again.

    There is a clear difference between the recoveries in Republican states and the continued recessions in Democrat states.  But more lockdowns are Joe Biden’s COVID strategy.

    That is the choice facing us in this election:  A Trump recovery or a Biden recession.
