Are Montanans In The Majority When It Comes To Masks And Travel?
I had to admit, I was a little surprised when I learned about a new poll from The Associated Press and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
First, let's back up just a bit, I'm sure that you are aware that after 2 years of wearing masks on airplanes, you no longer have to (for now). That decision came after a Federal Judge in Florida struck down the national mask mandate. If you're anything like me, you think this is great news, however, if you are anything like me, apparently we're in the minority.
According to the poll, the majority of Americans would prefer that we continue to wear masks on airplanes.
Yep, 56 percent of Americans feel like sticking with the masks is the way to go according to those that were surveyed. Only 24 percent were in favor of getting rid of the masks, and 20 percent didn't have an opinion either way. Granted, 56 percent certainly isn't a supermajority, but it certainly makes you wonder, doesn't it?
So, where do Montanans fall in line?
Are you in the majority? Do you feel like people should continue to wear masks in airports and on airplanes? Or do you feel like, the mask thing has run its course and people should be able to choose if they want to or not?
Personally, I'm over the whole mask thing and the idea of sitting in an airport or on an airplane mask-free is fantastic news in my book. However, according to ABC News, the Justice Department plans to appeal the decision.
So, let's take our own poll, shall we? Let's see what the majority of Montanans have to say. Be sure to vote in the poll below:
