Religion, Trump, and Social Distancing Amid the Coronavirus

Episode 1,  Apr 14, 2020, 08:19 PM

As the nation continues to feel the impact of the coronavirus, preventative measures such as social distancing are being practiced across the country to help contain the spread. On the inaugural episode of PRRI’s Reasons Why Podcast, we talk with PRRI Research Director Natalie Jackson, Ph.D. about our latest survey on the virus and changes in American social behaviors as a result. We discuss what the survey tells us about how the nation is dealing with the virus, and how religious affiliation, political partisanship, as well as attitudes about the president impact how people are reacting to it.
