  Poll: Half of Americans approve of Trump's coronavirus response The president's net positive rating is starkly partisan.A Monmouth University poll released Monday reports that 50 percent of respondents believe Trump has done a "good job" dealing with the outbreak, while 45 percent say he has done a "bad job." Three percent of those surveyed said they had a mixed review of Trump's performance, and 1 percent did not have an opinion.

Three polls released over the last week show Joe Biden leading President Donald Trump among voters nationwide, despite the uptick in Trump ’ s approval rating as his administration confronts the coronavirus outbreak engulfing the U.S. Biden’s lead is far from secure, given the tumultuous

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.

Pelosi not invited by Trump to White House coronavirus relief bill's signing

  Pelosi not invited by Trump to White House coronavirus relief bill's signing President Trump on Friday declined to invite Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to the White House ceremony where he planned to sign the historic $2 trillion coronavirus rescue package passed earlier in the day by the House, aides said.Friday's snub marked just the latest in a long-running feud between the Republican president and the Democratic Speaker of the House.In fact, aides said, the Republican president and Democratic Speaker have not spoken to each other since Oct. 16, when Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) walked out of a meeting with Trump after he reportedly insulted her as a "third-rate politician.

That nearly matches Trump ’ s overall approval rating of 46 percent, which is statistically unchanged from a month ago. The poll was conducted March 11-13, surveying 900 registered voters. It went into the field the day of Trump ’ s address to the nation on the outbreak on Wednesday, the same day the

They're politicizing it,” Trump told his supporters. “One of my people came up to me and said, ‘Mr “But for him to stop and start talking about being a hoax is absolutely dangerous. It' s just not a decent way to act." The coronavirus has infected nearly

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.

If you're one of the 12% of adults who get their political news off of Twitter, you might think that the coronavirus pandemic is the end of President Donald Trump ' s political career. He seems to be getting slammed left and right on the platform (and in the media more generally) for his response.

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.

But voters do expect the current disruption to recede in the months to come. Respondents were split about whether it would be a good idea (38 percent) or a bad idea (37 percent) to end social distancing in the next two months. But 46 percent think it’s a good idea for it to end in the next three months, and a 54 percent majority says it’s a good idea in the next six months.

The overwhelming majority of voters, 85 percent, approve of the rescue package passed by Congress and signed into law by Trump last week, the poll shows. Only 8 percent disapprove.

The poll was conducted March 27-29, surveying 1,997 registered voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.
