Poll: Americans divided on face masks while flying

Americans are about evenly divided on whether the government should require passengers to wear a face mask when flying on an airplane. While 49% of U.S. adults say the federal government should require all travelers aged 2 and older to wear a mask, 51% feel it should not be mandated…

Although the country is split over whether masks should be mandated on planes, a majority of Americans (60%) say that given the choice, they would choose to wear a face mask if they were traveling by plane in the next few days. Forty percent say they would opt to go maskless.

Party identification is the most significant driver of U.S. adults’ propensity to wear a mask on a flight. Ninety percent of Democrats and 54% of independents say they would do so, but just 22% of Republicans say the same.
