Dr. Anthony Fauci is facing a slew of investigations if Republicans win back control of Congress in November’s crucial midterm elections.
What’s more, two new polls reveal that most Americans are beyond fed-up with Fauci and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
A new Gallup poll found that one-third of Americans said they believe the pandemic is over.
Roughly 34 percent of respondents said that the pandemic is over, while 66 percent of respondents disagreed with that sentiment — but there was a stark partisan divide.
Around 60 percent of registered Republicans said the pandemic is “over” compared to just 10 percent of Democrats who agreed.
Among Independent voters, 39 percent said they believe the pandemic is finished.
In a separate poll, Americans’ confidence in Fauci has eroded.
The survey, by the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Public Policy Center, found that 65 percent of Americans said they believe Fauci gives trustworthy pandemic advice.
Last year, the poll found that 71 percent thought Fauci was trustworthy, in what the poll described as a “statistically meaningful drop.”
A whopping 35 percent of voters said they weren’t confident in Fauci, which was up from 29 percent over the same time frame.
Fauci is also facing wrath from Republican lawmakers.
Indiana GOP Sen. Mike Braun says “we need to have a plan” for when Republicans win back majorities in Congress in November’s midterm elections.
During an interview on Newsmax’s “Eric Bolling: The Balance,” Braun also endorsed the idea of House Republicans launching an investigation into Fauci.
“We’re going to win the House back. I think the Senate is now in play. We’ve talked about it before. What do we do with it when we get it back?” Braun asked.
“Are we going to just lay back, baseline this craziness as something we accept?” he continued. “Are we going to undo it? And then what are we going to put out there as a game plan if we want to win the presidency back in 2024?”
“We’ll put a tourniquet on crazy legislation by winning the House. We’ll get back in the appointment business of only conservative judges and cabinet members. But we don’t need to really look too far,” he said. “Go back to pre-COVID. Look at what was working under (Donald) Trump. Get back to it.”
Saying that the “tables turn in January of 2023,” Braun emphasized the need for Republicans to be “as aggressive as what they (Democrats) have been from the moment Trump got elected.”
Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan recently vowed that Republicans would focus on three investigations if they win back the House in the midterms.
“The top three are the DOJ (Department of Justice), what they’re doing to parents,” Jordan said in a podcast interview at the time. “Priority No. 2, and equally as important, is the chaos that is now our southern border and has been that way for a year ever since Biden took office.
“We will do a joint investigation with the Oversight Committee … in conjunction with Sen. (Rand) Paul and Sen. (Ron) Johnson on the origins of this (COVID-19), (Dr. Anthony) Fauci, and all the other things,” he added of his third priority.
Braun was asked about Jordan’s comments and seemed to agree.
“A lot of what I’m going to be pushing for is stuff that we generally aren’t comfortable with doing, but it better start with some of the investigations. It better start in January, and then we need to have a plan out there that counters a lot of the stuff that’s been put in place in just a year and a half of damage with Biden at the helm.”
Jordan said Republicans will “uncover” what Fauci knew about the origins of the coronavirus pandemic.
Jordan argued recently released emails prove there’s a “need to investigate Fauci.”
“If the American people put us back in charge, we are definitely going to do this,” Jordan said, adding that his colleagues would push for congressional investigations.
