Pennsylvanians don’t like how their leaders are handling COVID-19 twenty-two months into the pandemic but tend to support masking in schools and vaccines. That’s according to the latest Muhlenberg College Poll that focused on COVID. Neither President Joe Biden or Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf got high marks for how they’re handling COVID mitigation efforts.

Pennsylvanians are split almost evenly on whether employers should mandate that their employees get vaccinated against the virus.

Christopher Borick, professor of political science and director of the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion appears on Monday’s Smart Talk.
