POLL: Majority Of Americans Don’t Trust Trump On Coronavirus

A new poll released today shows that a majority of Americans don’t trust what they’re hearing from Trump. And that’s no surprise given how from the beginning Trump has misled the public, contradicted experts, and downplayed the seriousness of this crisis.

60% of Americans don’t have much or any trust in what Trump says about coronavirus.

  • NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll: “Just 37% of Americans now say they had a good amount or a great deal of trust in what they’re hearing from the president, while 60% say they had not very much or no trust at all in what he’s saying.”

  • USA Today/Ipsos Poll: “A lack of trust in the president during this crisis is evident. Our latest polling with USA Today shows that most Americans don’t see Trump or Vice President Pence, who he charged with leading the task force on the coronavirus, as the most credible sources of information about the virus.”

Trump repeatedly misled Americans by downplaying the seriousness of the public health crisis.
