NEW POLL: Majority Of Americans Embarrassed & Angry Over Trump’s Failed Coronavirus Response
August 19, 2020
Disapproval of Trump’s handling of the coronavirus hit a new high in a poll released today, which also shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans are embarrassed by his failed coronavirus response, think he can be doing more to fight the pandemic, and are angry about the way things are going under his leadership.
“Nearly 7 in 10 Americans say the US response to the coronavirus outbreak makes them feel embarrassed, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS, as 62% of the public says President Donald Trump could be doing more to fight the outbreak.”
“The new poll finds disapproval of Trump’s handling of the outbreak at a new high, 58%, as the share who say the worst of the pandemic is yet to come has risen to 55% after dropping through the spring.”
“And Americans are angry. About 8 in 10 say they are at least somewhat angry about the way things are going in the country today, including an astonishing 51% who say they are very angry. CNN has asked this question in polling periodically since 2008, and the previous high for the share who said they were ‘very angry’ was 35%, reached in 2008 and 2016.”
