from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
When will we return to normal?
It’s a good question, and one that will spawn a variety of answers for a variety of reasons.
A few days ago, journalist Sharyl Attkisson released the results of an online poll she conducted.
Although it’s an “unscientific” poll, it’s probably as accurate as any other.
The poll centered on when our lives may return to normal.
Here are a few of the results:
Almost 70% say it will be by the end of summer or sooner.
Thirty-five percent said it will be “within weeks,” and a near equal number, 34%, said it will be “by end of summer.”
Nine percent think we will not return to normal before 2021.
A significant minority, 16%, say we will “never” return to normal.
Now, considering who reads and follows Sharyl Attkisson, it’s understandable why they appear relatively optimistic.
It’s been proven that generally, conservatives, those who follow Sharyl, tend to be more positive, which is likely why the results seem skewed toward the more positive.
However, an April 3, ABC News/Ipsos poll generally reflected the sentiment in the Attkisson survey.
In this poll, “just over nine in 10 Americans now say that the outbreak has disrupted their daily routine, showing the reach of the pandemic’s impact. Among those saying this, 44% said they think they will be able to resume their regular routine by June 1, including 13% who said by May 1, while a combined 84% believe that will happen by the end of the summer.”
