You first, Dan. Do it for the children.
Anyway, this morning’s email thingie from Axios is show us that the tide is changing:
We just lived through the week that America changed: The second installment of our weekly Axios-Ipsos Coronavirus Index shows sudden, massive shifts in how we work, shop, socialize and care for ourselves and our families.
- “We’ve never seen this widespread, systemic, forced behavioral change — never in American history — this quickly,” said Cliff Young, president of Ipsos U.S. Public Affairs.
Partisan divisions about the seriousness of the coronavirus have collapsed, writes Margaret Talev, Axios White House and politics editor.
- 9 in 10 Americans now fear the virus, with half worried about their jobs and their ability to pay the bills.
- A 21-point gap last week between Democrats and Republicans has narrowed to 11, with 95% of Democrats and 84% of Republicans now saying they are concerned.
The Smart Brevity on the poll: Everything’s worse.
You don’t say?
