80% of US adults report wearing a mask all, most, or some of the time when in stores or other businesses. Only 7% say they never do.  https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2020/06/23/most-americans-say-they-regularly-wore-a-mask-in-stores-in-the-past-month-fewer-see-others-doing-it/ 

87% of adults say the actions of ordinary Americans affect how the coronavirus spreads in the US a great deal or a fair amount. Only 2% say not at all.  https://www.people-press.org/2020/06/25/republicans-democrats-move-even-further-apart-in-coronavirus-concerns/ 

Even in the respondent groups least likely to say they wear a mask all or most of the time, uptake is still three quarters.  https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2020/06/23/most-americans-say-they-regularly-wore-a-mask-in-stores-in-the-past-month-fewer-see-others-doing-it/ 

These results suggest that mask use is much less controversial than it seems. But I would not be surprised if non-use is locally clustered.
