Polls find Americans divided on Trump handling of crisis


WASHINGTON – Americans are divided on President Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus outbreak, which has killed more than 1,000 in the U.S. and caused economic devastation, according to recent polls. 

A Reuters/Ipsos online survey of more than 4,000 Americans found 49% approve of Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis, while 44% disapproved.

Those results largely fell along party lines. Republicans approved of the president’s response 83%-13%, while Democrats disapproved 71%-24%. Independents were split, 43%-43%. 

An Economist/YouGov poll also found that 49% approve of Trump’s management of the outbreak with 44% saying they disapprove. And, as with the Reuters poll, the opinions largely fell along party lines.

Eighty-nine percent of registered Republicans said they approved of Trump’s response while only 7% said they disapproved. Among Democrats, 74% said they disapproved, while 21% approved. And independents were divided, with 42% approving and 45% disapproving.
