But data from both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) show millions of blacks, Hispanics and people of all races under the age of 40 are also refusing to have the shot.
Those demographics are far more likely to be vote Democrat, prompting some critics to accuse liberal pundits of manipulating data to push their anti-Republican agenda.
'There are millions and millions of people who don't want the vaccine who don't fit into the reductive and simplistic partisan narrative that vaccine hesitancy is about conservatism and Fox,' Glenn Greenwald wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

92 percent of Americans aged 65 to 74 and 87 percent of Americans 75 and older are at least partially vaccinated.
Greenwald wrote on Twitter: 'The primary use of COVID discourse for liberal pundits is to be able to scream more loudly than usual their primary view -- Republicans are primitive, stupid troglodytes -- all while ignoring the actual demographics of who is vaccine hesitant, because those facts ruin their fun'.
