The Hill reports:
Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) on Sunday said that the vaccine hesitancy reported among supporters of former President Trump is due to “a natural resistance to government,” calling it “worrisome.”
Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” host Dana Bash asked Hutchinson what he made of the hesitancy, noting that voters in his state of Arkansas are largely pro-Trump.
“Well I’ve thought a lot about that and I think it’s a natural resistance to government and skepticism of it. But you look at the breadth of support here in Arkansas for President Trump, and you have rural voters, you have minority voters and their hesitancy is worrisome, not just here but all across the country,” Hutchinson said.
