I used the word “simple” in a peculiar way. What I was getting at was the simplicity (in my mind) with which one could predict whether someone would want a COVID vaccine based on which party they belonged to or who they voted for to be President. Was it really that simple for pollsters and political pundits to predict important health decisions based on party?
Kevin reminded me that now everything is being spun through the lens of partisan politics, so maybe I am responding to media spin, rather than reality.
On further reflection, I think that 24/7 propaganda, even when you are not overtly paying attention, has a subliminal effect on people, causing listeners to believe what is being told, after they have heard the same thing many times, even if they aren’t consciously aware of it. So the choice of vaccination would not be one driven by your party affiliation but rather which media you listen to.
