Dominicans by nature are among the most gregarious people in the Americas. So not being able to kiss and hug is a tough call for the population. Not being able to spend a night out over drinks with friends is even tougher for young people.
Yet, the Gallup November 2020 poll reveals that 68.7% of the population favors keeping the Covid-19 curfew that has Dominicans home before 9pm on weekdays and before 7pm on weekends and holidays.
Adults aged 55 and over feel strongest about keeping the curfew. 80.5% spoke up in favor when polled by Gallup. Yet, 69.6% of adults aged 25 to 54 were also in favor. Yet, only 54.9% of those 18 to 24 years.
Overall, most women, or 71%, approve of the restriction, compared to 66.3% of men.
The findings are from the Gallup-Hoy poll carried out 11-16 November 2020. 1,200 Dominicans eligible to vote were polled. The poll has a margin of error of 2.8%.
