A majority of Republicans said that the number of coronavirus deaths in the U.S. – now topping 176,000, according to data from Johns Hopkins University – is “acceptable,” according to a poll released Sunday.

A CBS News-YouGov poll determined that 57 percent of Republican respondents said the U.S. death toll for COVID-19 has been “acceptable,” while 43 percent said it was “not acceptable.” Republicans were the only partisan group of which a majority of voters said the number of deaths has been acceptable.

Among Democrats, 10 percent said the coronavirus death toll in the U.S. has been acceptable, while 90 percent said it was not acceptable. For independents, 33 percent labeled the death toll as acceptable, and 67 percent called it unacceptable.

The U.S. COVID-19 death toll has reached at least 176,579 fatalities or almost 22 percent of the world’s reported deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

The U.S. has documented more than 5.6 million cases, amounting to about a quarter of the world’s reported cases.
