Veteran Republican pollster Tony Fabrizio tells Fox News that when it comes to the political impact of the COVID package, “the devil’s in the details.”
“When the fine print finally catches up with them, the American people are going to realize it wasn’t such a great deal,” emphasized Fabrizio, who was Donald Trump’s pollster on both his 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns.
Fabrizio argued that “only 10, 11% of the money actually goes to fighting COVID. The rest of the money goes to a whole bunch of other things, like bailing out states and bailing out cities and pension funds, money that has nothing to do with direct COVID relief.”
The veteran strategist, who also worked on Sen. Bob Dole’s 1996 presidential campaign added that while “people like the idea of the direct check and they love the idea of COVID relief, this actually does less in terms of relief than the previous measures, which helped with businesses and individuals.”
Fabrizio noted that this bill “is more of a bailout for big cities and bloated government than it is anything else.”
