Poll: How Trump and Biden supporters differ on face masks

The two candidates’ supporters take similar positions and agree with their respective candidates about the value of masks. Some of the President’s supporters reject wearing a mask entirely: 10% say they never wear a mask, and indeed virtually everyone who claims to never wear a mask says they will vote for the President.

Almost no Biden supporters say the same. In fact, more than seven in 10 who plan to vote for the Democrat say they “always” wear a mask outside their home, something just a third of Trump supporters do.

On social distancing, 41% of Trump supporters say it is safe enough today to stop social distancing entirely, something just 1% of Biden supporters agree with.
