That tells me that 9% of Americans are morons.
Actually to be honest I think the number is significantly higher than that.

As President Donald Trump continues to tout the progress of coronavirus vaccine development, going so far this week as to promise delivery to everyone in the U.S. by next spring, a majority of Americans report having no confidence at all in him to confirm the safety of a potential inoculation, according to a ABC News/Ipsos poll released Sunday.
Fewer than 1 in 10 (9%) Americans have a great deal of confidence in Trump to confirm vaccine effectiveness with another 18% reporting only a “good amount” of confidence in the poll conducted by Ipsos in partnership with ABC News using Ipsos’ Knowledge Panel. In contrast, 69% don’t have confidence in the president vouching for a vaccine, including 16% saying “not so much” and 53% saying “none at all.”
On Friday, Trump told reporters at a press briefing that the White House “expect[s] to have enough vaccines for every American by April,” a statement contradicting administration health experts, including the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who have pegged the delivery of such a vaccine to the second half of 2021.
The poll also finds fewer Americans say they are “likely” to get a “safe and effective coronavirus vaccine,” compared to results from May. There was a 10-point drop (74% to 64%) in Americans who said they were either very or somewhat likely to get the vaccine — a decrease driven nearly entirely by a decline among Republicans.
In May, 75% of Republicans reported that they were likely to get a vaccine, compared to 25% who said they were unlikely to get one. The spread is even (50%-50%) in this week’s poll.
Yeah, I would not take a vaccine that was approved by Donald Trump but had not yet been tested effectively at gunpoint.
I think we all know that Trump would gladly inject all of us with a syringe full of bleach if he thought doing so would help him win reelection.
