The American people are tired of Dr. Anthony Fauci, according to Town Hall.

New polls revealed that Americans are Fed up with Dr. Fauci.

Respondents were asked, “Which comes closest to your view of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s impact during the pandemic?”

46% of people that took part in the poll said that he helped during the pandemic.

30% said he hurt more than he helped.

50.8% of Republicans that took part in the poll shared that their confidence “decreased significantly.”

26.1% of Republicans shared that their confidence was “unchanged.”

“New Poll Shows 61 Percent of Republicans Say Dr. Anthony Fauci ‘Hurt America,’” Tommy Christopher stated.

34.7% of Democrats shared that their perspective of Cr. Fauci remained “unchanged.”

27.3% of Democrats that participated in the poll shared that their confidence “decreased significantly.”

From Town Hall:

Over a year into the pandemic, after we were told we would only need two weeks to stop the spread, the American people are understandably less than thrilled with Dr. Anthony Fauci.

The results were predictable for Democrats and Republicans, though the increased confidence in Fauci from Democrats, at 32.4 to 20.0 percent was not as significant as the decreased confidence from Republicans, at 66.1 to 12.1 percent.

Those with no party affiliation were twice as likely to say their confidence decreased rather than increased, by 41.7 percent to 20.4 percent. A plurality, at 31.5 percent, said their view was unchanged, though 27.3 percent said their confidence “decreased significantly.”

The poll was conducted May 16-May 18 with 1,093 respondents of likely voters, with 2.96 percent margin of error. Like most polls, Democrats were oversampled, making the decrease in confidence from overall respondents all the more noteworthy. The respondent breakdown was 39.3 percent Democrats, 35.6 percent Republicans, and 25.1 percent who were categorized as “non-partisan/other.”

To illustrate, a plurality of 702 men, at 30 percent, rate Fauci’s handling as “poor.” Meanwhile, a plurality of 857 women, at 28 percent, rate his handling as “excellent.” And then a majority of 537 Democrats, at 54 percent, say Fauci is doing an “excellent” job, while a majority of Republicans, at 55 percent, say he is doing a “poor” job.
