Poll: Majority of Americans now believe COVID came from China’s Wuhan Lab; 25% believe it was “Released on Purpose”
Thanks to hundreds of pages of Dr. Fauci’s emails released this week. A majority of Americans now believe that the coronavirus pandemic originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology, according to the latest Economist/YouGov poll.
Despite a massive and coordinated effort by big tech companies and the establishment media to censor and dismiss the lab leak theory as misinformation and conspiracy theory, a new YouGov poll found that a total of 58% of Americans now agree that it is “definitely or probably true” that the coronavirus came out of the Wuhan lab, a 9 percent increase when the same question was asked a year ago in May 2020.
The new poll also finds that another 25 percent say they believe the virus was “released on purpose.” Only 13 percent believe the virus ‘it mutated naturally from bats’ claim.
YouGov also states that “Americans are increasingly doubtful of the World Health Organization’s assertion that the coronavirus originated through natural transmission from bats to humans.”
Below is a screenshot of the poll results.
YouGov further adds:
“When it comes to the more specific circumstances of the virus’ emergence, 24% think it was created in a laboratory and was released on purpose, 18% think it was lab-created and escaped by accident, while a further 12% think it was a naturally occurring disease that was being examined in a laboratory but was released by accident.”
