2. I think that's optimistic of you, frankly.

There are anti-vaxxers on DU. Not many, but some.

I'll listen to Fauci, but I'll also do some additional research. We might well have more than one vaccine approved around the same time, so I'm going to be following all of it closely.

vaccine's results are shown to be effective before the election, trump will take credit for it, even to the extent it was because of "HIM" why it was developed

In other words, he will politicize it.

Regardless, he cannot run away from the fact that he is responsible for thousands losing their lives, and for the mishandling of the pandemic that have destroyed thousands of lives in so many areas

You don't have to be an anti-vaxxer to want to be cautious about anything Trump is rushing into production and stands to profit from. It's no longer the old FDA--it's the FDA under Trump. I'd be more confident in a vaccine coming from Europe. My preference, as I've said before, would be to wait a few months and just make sure it's not another Swine Flu vaccine debacle. Nobody who has a good life and good health wants to end up with Guillain Barre syndrome, or some other potential negative outcome.

Remember, he was carrying water for the administration on the masks are useless front, and remained silent in the face of trump lies far too long.

Had you made the statement a year ago, I would have followed him with less independent research - but it will be a long time before he re-earns the trust I once placed in him.

... 3 months have to say for themselves?

Trump is literally bragging about passing a dementia test and has given every indication he's not mentally sane.

Were are the CEOs? Why aren't the leisure and Travel CEOs screaming at the top of the lungs to get Red Don out of office !?

There are too many groups ... in ... leadership in America that are too silent when it comes to the man who brags he passed a dementia test.

Realistically this virus will be the leading cause of death for at least the next year or two and we have to deal with that.

Finding an effective vaccine is not a sure thing.

People pinning their hopes on a useful vaccine are likely to be disappointed.
