The survey, conducted immediately before President Donald Trump announced a 30-day extension of his physical and social distancing guidelines “to slow the spread” of Covid-19, shows 47 percent of voters feel the administration isn’t doing enough in response to the outbreak, greater than the 40 percent who feel the administration is doing the right amount.

Two weeks ago, 43 percent said the administration wasn’t doing enough in the days following the initial measures deployed to reduce the impacts of the virus, while 39 percent said it was doing the right amount.

President Trump ’ s job approval ratings are up as the public generally approves of his response to the coronavirus crisis. That positive bump is small, however, compared with the bumps for other Western leaders. Americans tend to support their presidents in the initial onset of a crisis.

While the new poll was conducted before the extension of the household isolation recommendations, it comes as other polls suggest the positive marks Trump earned for his early response to the crisis are turning more negative.

A CNN/SSRS survey released Monday showed Americans split evenly on whether the federal government has done a good or bad job handling the outbreak, and two Democratic polls conducted in recent days — from Navigator and Daily Kos/Civiqs — show more respondents say they disapprove of the way Trump is handling the situation than in surveys conducted last week. That is despite Trump's previous polling bounce, as some Democratic and independent voters rallied behind him during the early days of the crisis.

A separate Morning Consult tracking poll shows Trump’s net approval on handling the coronavirus — the difference between the percentage who approve and disapprove of his job performance — sliding 7 points off its high from March 20.

Trump’s ratings pale in comparison to those for the governors of the various states. A combined 62 percent say their state’s governor has done an “excellent” or “good” job handling the crisis.

While the poll was conducted entirely prior to Trump’s announcement that his administration would recommend another month of social distancing, voters predicted it wouldn’t be safe to return to business as usual in April. Only 10 percent say it would be a good idea to stop social distancing in the next two weeks, and 20 percent said it would be a good idea in the next month.
