How MI residents feel about stay-home orders

With stay-at-home orders ending and Michigan set to partially re-open for business, how do people feel about social distancing efforts and the response of public officials to combat COVID-19?

The study’s findings include:

  • Nearly half of millennials feel their family members aren’t taking the pandemic seriously enough; baby boomers are the most likely to feel that public officials have done too much to handle COVID-19
  • Over half of Democrats feel people aren’t worried enough about COVID-19; nearly 4 in 10 Republicans feel people are too worried
  • 72% of Democrats believe public officials haven’t done enough to handle the crisis, more than half of whom report deteriorating mental health since the outbreak
  • Republicans are more than twice as likely as Democrats to believe that public officials have done too much in response to the crisis
