Full Report: NewsNation’s survey on COVID-19 restrictions, immigration

Polls

(NewsNation) — NewsNation released a new poll Wednesday with Decision Desk HQ asking registered voters their views on the COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions, supply chain issues and the trucking industry and immigration at the southern border.

NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ polled 1,038 registered voters on April 17 and 18, using the Samplify online voter panel. Margins of error were on average about 3% but vary per question because the number of people who answered each question is different (learn more about why margins of error matter here).
