New CNN Poll Conducted by SSRS

A majority of Americans say they are at least somewhat confident the federal government can prevent a nationwide epidemic of novel coronavirus, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, but only about half say the government has done a good job of containing its spread so far.

Reviews of President Donald Trump’s handling of the outbreak of coronavirus tilt negative, with 48% saying they disapprove and 41% approving.
