POLL: Democrats More Concerned About COVID Outbreak At Winter Olympics Than China’s Human Rights Violations

A new Axios-Momentive poll released Friday showed that Democrats are more concerned about a COVID-19 outbreak at the Winter Olympics than China’s human rights violations.

When asked what, if any, concerns they had about Beijing hosting the Olympic Games, 60% of Democrats said a COVID outbreak, while 58% said China’s human rights record.

Republicans were far less concerned about a potential virus outbreak than Democrats, with only 35% citing it as a concern.

The percent of Republican respondents concerned about China’s human rights violations, 56%, was just slightly lower than the response from Democratic respondents

Republicans were more concerned than Democrats about the potential surveillance of participants and how the Olympics might boost China’s international status.

Seventy percent of respondents said they disapproved of China hosting the Games, but half still said they planned to watch. Democrats were the most likely to say they plan to watch at least some of the Olympics at 61%, compared to 45% and 36% for Republicans and Independents, respectively.

“People aren’t happy that the Olympics are in China, but it’s still the Olympics,” Laura Wronski, senior manager for research science at Momentive, told Axios.
