Poll: 77 percent of voters say Congress should pass a coronavirus relief package as soon as possible

An overwhelming majority of voters said Congress should pass a coronavirus relief package as soon as possible, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds.

Seventy-seven percent of registered voters in the Nov. 10-13 survey said Congress should pass another round of stimulus as soon as possible. 

Twenty-three percent said the nation does not need a new coronavirus relief package because the economy is bouncing back on its own.

The survey found 64 percent of Republican voters favored Congress taking up a relief package, along with 89 percent of Democrats and 78 percent of independents. 

The poll also found that 67 percent of respondents who said they voted for Donald Trump supported action on a stimulus package sooner than later.

Eighty-eight percent of Biden voters agreed.

The survey comes as the nation sees a surge in coronavirus cases and fatalities.

President-elect Biden on Monday urged Congress to pass the Heroes Act, another round of coronavirus relief that was passed in the House earlier this year but has since stalled in the Senate.

The latest Hill-HarrisX poll was conducted online among 2,762 registered voters between Nov. 10 and 13. It has a margin of error of 1.87 percentage points.
