Even Republicans who are personally disposed toward best public health practices might weigh the political cost of wearing a mask. "That is a potential tightrope that Republican leaders are on right now," says Shana Gadarian, associate professor of political science. "The biggest risk is that the president will pick you out for ridicule, or if you had someone running against you, the president would endorse that person." Gadarian was featured in the Deseret News article "What’s in it for a politician not to wear a mask?" 08/18/20
