This comparison is misleading in another way: There are more White Republicans in the United States than Black adults. Twelve percent of the U.S. population is made up of adult Blacks. Adult Whites make up 64 percent of the population, and 28 percent of them are Republican. (An additional 15 percent are Republican-leaning independents.) In other words, there are about twice as many Republican or Republican-leaning White adults as there are Black adults. This is a large part of why the KFF found in July that a majority of those who weren’t vaccinated were Republicans and, again, that the density of those who adamantly oppose vaccination skews more heavily to the right.
