A new ABC News/Ipsos Poll finds more Americans disapprove of Trump’s bigly handling of the coronavirus outbreak. Americans also report their daily lives have changed because of the outbreak and have universal concern about the infection.
- This KnowledgePanel survey conducted April 1-2, 2020 finds that 47% of Americans approve of the way Donald Trump is handling the response to the coronavirus, down from 55% two weeks ago and 51% in last week’s ABC News/ Washington Post poll.
- Virtually all Americans, 89%, report being somewhat or very concerned about being infected by the coronavirus, up from 79% two weeks ago.
- Likewise, almost all Americans, 91%, report their regular routine changing because of the outbreak.
- Among those affected, a majority – 56% – say they don’t expect to resume their regular routine until after July 1st.
The ABC News/Ipsos poll was conducted April 1-2, surveying 559 adults. Its margin of sampling error is plus or minus 4.8 percentage points.
At this point, I would usually post averages compiled by Real Clear Politics but they’re outdated. Many things have changed since last week….like the number of lives succumbed to the virus.
