Georgians are largely pessimistic about the direction of the country and the performance of institutions, as they identify jobs, poverty, and inflation – all worsened by the pandemic – as the top issues – says the new public opinion survey commissioned by the National Democratic Institute (NDI), a U.S. non-profit. Also, vaccination hesitancy remains high, especially among younger generations.
 
According to the survey, 53% of respondents assessed the management of COVID-19 pandemic in the country as good, as opposed to 37% which rated it as bad.
 
Asked how they see vaccination process going in the country, 45% responded it is going badly, 37% said good, 18% don’t know. Tbilisi residents are most critical about the process with 54%, NDI survey said.
 
42% of respondents noted they don’t have enough information about vaccination, while 54% said they do.
 
The survey was fielded by the Caucasus Resource Research Centers (CRRC) for NDI between July 13 and July 25 with the financial assistance of the UK Aid, and was carried out through nationwide mobile phone interviews (excluding occupied territories) with 2,016 respondents and has an average margin of error plus, minus 1.3%.
