“Overall the country has come down from its mood highs as the Delta variant is putting a crimp in America’s plan to party now and go back to work after Labor Day,” Mark Penn, co-director of the poll, told The Hill.
The poll, conducted July 28-29, surveyed 1,788 registered voters. No margin of error was provided.
