(1) Substantial majorities (6 in 10, or more) of Americans support all seven restrictive measures.
(2) Majorities of Americans -- and in most cases large majorities -- in every state support five of the seven restrictive measures. The exceptions are prohibiting K-12 schools from teaching in-person classes and closing most businesses other than grocery stores and pharmacies. In the latter two cases, support falls below 50% in three states for businesses and two states for schools (yet both are still supported by majorities in all other states).
(3) Support is particularly strong for prohibiting international travel and requesting that people stay at home and avoid large gatherings.
(4) Americans across nearly all subgroups (partisanship, race, gender, age) and states are, in general, least supportive of closing businesses other than grocery stores and pharmacies, followed by prohibiting K-12 schools from teaching in-person.
(5) The greater a respondent’s concern about contracting COVID-19 for either their family members or themselves, the greater their support for restrictive measures. Similarly, belief that COVID-19 is increasing in a respondent’s state is also positively related to their support for restrictions.
(6) Families with children at home are about as likely as other respondents to support restrictive measures, including closing K-12 schools to in-person classes.
(7) Americans are starkly divided along partisan lines. Democrats and Biden voters are substantially more supportive of nearly all of the queried measures than Republicans or Trump voters, especially for closing in-person K-12 schools, non-essential businesses, and eat-in restaurants. Nevertheless, all four subgroups (Democrats, Republicans, Trump Voters, Biden Voters) are least supportive of closing non-essential businesses.
