Everything’s politicized these days… even staying alive.
According to a recent poll, 82 percent of Democrats would not take the life-saving coronavirus drug promoted by President Trump.
Rasmussen asked the following question: “If you were diagnosed with COVID-19, would you take the drug Hydroxychloroquine?”
Just 18 percent of Democrats said they would.
53 percent of Republicans, however, said they would take the drug, while 28 percent of independents would.
Hydroxychloroquine is an FDA-approved anti-malaria drug, that was discovered nearly a century ago.
While it has not yet been approved for use for coronavirus, anecdotal studies have shown it to have a huge impact in helping victims survive the disease and make a full recovery.
The encouraging early signs have led to President Trump praising the disease and suggesting patients ask their doctors about prescribing it.
While at least one Democratic politician has lauded Trump for saving her life by publicizing the little-known drug, many liberal leaders have criticized Trump’s action.
