Majority believes Biden does not have the constitutional authority to force private businesses to require vaccine mandates for employees.
New polling shows that the majority of Americans do not approve of President Joe Bidens new vaccine mandate.
Biden announced the mandate last week, which includes requirements that any business with more than 100 employees ensure they are vaccinated or be tested weekly. Bidens announcement included a range of other federal rules that are estimated to affect 100 million Americans.
Convention of States Action released new polling Monday that showed 58.6% of those surveyed do not believe President Biden has the constitutional authority to force private businesses to require vaccine mandates for employees.
In the same poll, 29.7% of voters said Biden does have the authority, and 11.7% are unsure. In addition, 55.5% of voters say the mandate sets a precedent that could be abused by future presidents on other issues.
