Negative ratings for government handling of coronavirus persist
New CNN Politics Poll Conducted by SSRS
Most Americans (54%) continue to say the US government is doing a poor job preventing the spread of Covid-19, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS.
And, while a growing share of the public feels the worst of the outbreak is behind us (44%, up from 17% in April), a majority (52%) still sees the worst on the horizon
Four-in-10 Americans say that they personally know someone who has been diagnosed with coronavirus, a figure that has nearly doubled in the last month. And most say the government is not doing enough to address the growing death toll (56%), the limited availability of testing (57%) or the potential for a second wave of cases later this year (58%).
The new poll finds President Donald Trump’s overall approval rating holding about even at 45%. His rating now matches his high point in CNN polling dating back to the start of his term.
