Three in Four Americans Say Their Lives are Back to ‘Normal’: Poll

A new Yahoo News/YouGov poll discovered 74% of Americans say their lives are “normal” again after living under the pandemic’s limitations for almost two years.

The poll was done from Nov. 17 to Nov. 19 with 1,696 U.S. adults surveyed.

The survey showcased how 21% of Americans described their lives as “very normal” and 53% say their lives were “somewhat normal.”

This sense of normal life comes as the coronavirus vaccines have been approved for those as young as five; and booster shots have been approved for all adults.

19% of Americans said their lives were “not very normal” and 7% said their lives were, “not normal at all.”

The majority of those who are unvaccinated described their lives as “normal”, despite research that shows those individuals make up the majority of hospitalizations and deaths. Besides this, they worry the least about being protected from the virus.

On the other side, only 19% of vaccinated Americans say their lives are “very normal,” and 8% say their lives “never stopped” being normal.
