AP-NORC survey finds that most respondents want masks for travelers
Interviews for the poll were conducted last Thursday to Monday, shortly before a federal judge in Florida struck down the national mask mandate on airplanes and mass transit.
A poll finds that a majority of people in the United States continue to support a mask requirement for people traveling on airplanes and other shared transportation.
The poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds that 56% of those surveyed favor requiring people on planes, trains and public transportation to wear masks.
That compares with 24% opposed and 20% who say they’re neither in favor nor opposed.
Interviews for the poll were conducted before a federal judge in Tampa on Monday struck down the national mask mandate on airplanes and mass transit.
The Justice Department is filing an appeal seeking to overturn the judge’s order.
