Three out of four Americans, including a majority of Republicans, are in favor of requiring people to wear face coverings while outside their homes due to concerns over spiking coronavirus cases, a new poll conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research has found.
The AP reports that the survey also found that “about two-thirds of Americans disapprove of how President Donald Trump is handling the outbreak, an unwelcome sign for the White House in an election year shaped by the nation’s battle with the pandemic.”
Democrats are already signaling their dissatisfaction with the Republican coronavirus relief bill, which has not yet been released.
Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer said Democrats expected the bill to lack money for child food assistance, rental assistance and hazard pay for frontline workers.
From what we know, the GOP COVID relief proposal won’t include:
Food assistance for hungry kids
Hazard pay for essential workers
New funding for state and local governments
Investments in communities of color
It won't get the job done.
