A new Ipsos poll, conducted on behalf of The Daily Beast, examines whether Americans are able to sort through recent false claims made about COVID-19 (three-quarters correctly identify that “anyone who wants a test can get a test” is untrue), while examining attitudes around the virus and its impact on the economy.

The decades long tracker we’ve been running? Weakened. Longitudinal data relies on consistency, the assumption that external factors change only slight over time. COVID-19 has proven to be a global catastrophe, changing our daily lives in ways we could have never anticipated from the decimation of global supply chains to the way we interact with each other on a daily basis.
