Nearly two-thirds of Americans say reopening the country now is not worth it because it will mean more lives are lost, according to the latest ABC News/Ipsos poll. But the poll also finds stark partisan, racial and gender differences in views of reopening, including a nearly 60 percentage point gap between Democrats and Republicans. While nearly all (92%) of Democrats say opening the country now isn’t worth it, only 35% of Republicans agree. Among independents, 63% oppose opening up the country.
The poll, conducted May 6 and 7 among a random national sample of 532 adults, has a margin of error of 4.9 points.
