More than two-thirds of voters believe Covid-19 probably came from a Chinese research lab, and agree with Republican demands that Dr. Anthony Fauci testify under oath in a congressional investigation.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.
The survey found that 68% of likely U.S. voters believe it’s likely that the Covid-19 virus originated in a Chinese laboratory, including 48% who say it’s "very likely."
Twenty percent (20%) don’t believe the virus came from a Chinese lab, and another 12% aren’t sure. These findings are mostly unchanged since May 2021.
In June 2021, only 40% of voters believed that Fauci, the federal government’s top virus expert, had told the truth about U.S. funding of so-called “gain-of-function” research in China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) stated on Twitter that there should be “a full-throated investigation into the origins of the [COVID-19] pandemic. [Dr. Fauci] must be required to testify under oath regarding any discussions he participated in concerning the Wuhan lab leak.”
Seventy-two percent (72%) of voters agree with that statement, including 51% who "strongly agree" with Paul’s call for a “full-throated investigation.”
Only 22% disagree, including 13% who "strongly disagree."
