48% of surveyors say they think quality is worsening,which compares to 39% in 2018.

Other findings include:

 65% of people surveyed very closely or somewhat closely to following news on health issues.   

That is down from 80% in 2018.

85% of people surveyed say e-cigarettes and vaping are a somewhat serious or very serious problem.

That is up from 65% just two years ago.
