A majority (55%) of surveyed voters said "yes" to whether unvaccinated people should have the same rights as vaccinated people, while a third said "no" and 11% were "not sure."
Older voters aged 65+ were the only age group to have more respondents say "no" (no 46%; yes 40%), compared with younger voters aged 18-24 (yes 60%; 29% no) and 18-29 (yes 60%; no 28%), who were more likely to think unvaccinated and vaccinated people should have the same rights.
The age group 50-64 (yes 61%; no 27%) was equally likely, compared with younger voters aged 18-24 and 18-29, to agree that unvaccinated and vaccinated people should have equal rights.
There were also subtle differences when it came to politics; Democrats were split (yes 44%; 44% no), while Republicans (yes 66%; no 26%) were pretty emphatic that unvaccinated and vaccinated people should have the same rights. Independents (yes 56%; no 30%) were closer in line with Republicans when it came to equal rights for unvaccinated and vaccinated people.
Half of surveyed voters thought it was prejudice to separate those who have received the vaccine from those who have not. More than a third thought separation of vaccinated and unvaccinated people was fine and 11% were not sure.
Similar to the previous question, the oldest voters surveyed aged 65+ (yes 33%; no 54%) were the only group to disagree, as they were most likely to think it is not prejudiced to separate vaccinated and unvaccinated people. Younger voters aged 18-29 (yes 53%; no 32%) and those aged 50-64 (yes 58%; no 32%) were the most likely to think it is prejudice to separate vaccinated and unvaccinated people.
When it came to party lines, again, Democrats were evenly split (yes 45%; 45% no), while Republicans (yes 60%; 31% no) were the most likely to not support separating vaccinated and unvaccinated people at events, private businesses, and public places. With less intensity than Republicans, a plurality of Independents (yes 48%; 35% no) thought it was prejudice to separate vaccinated and unvaccinated people at events, private businesses, and public places.
Zogby Analytics Poll Methodology
US Likely Voters
5/26/21 - 5/27/21
Zogby Analytics conducted an online survey of 868 likely voters in the US.
Using internal and trusted interactive partner resources, thousands of adults were randomly invited to participate in this interactive survey. Each invitation is password coded and secure so that one respondent can only access the survey one time.
Using information based on census data, voter registration figures, CIA fact books and exit polls, we use complex weighting techniques to best represent the demographics of the population being surveyed. Weighted variables may include age, race, gender, region, party, education, and religion. The party breakdown for this survey is as follows: 37% Democrat, 35% Republican and 28% Independent/unaffiliated.
Based on a confidence interval of 95%, the margin of error for 868 is +/- 3.3 percentage points. This means that all other things being equal, the identical survey repeated will have results within the margin of error 95 times out of 100.
Subsets of the data have a larger margin of error than the whole data set. As a rule we do not rely on the validity of very small subsets of the data especially sets smaller than 50-75 respondents. At that subset we can make estimations based on the data, but in these cases the data is more qualitative than quantitative.
Additional factors can create error, such as question wording and question order.
