Only 26 Percent of Americans Trust Trump for Coronavirus Info, Poll Shows

The new poll by The New York Times and Siena College asked respondents who they trust when it comes to information about the novel virus, showing that just 26 percent said Trump was a reliable source. Conversely, 84 percent said that medical scientists were a trustworthy source of information, while 67 percent listed Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Among Republicans, Trump's base of supporters, 66 percent said they trusted the president. That contrasted starkly with just 4 percent of Democrats and 21 percent of independents who said the president was a credible source of novel coronavirus information.

The poll was conducted from June 17 to 22 and included responses from 646 registered voters.

Newsweek reached out to the White House for comment on the polling data, but they did not respond by the time of publication.

In May, polling by CNN showed that 62 percent of voters said they did not trust Trump when it comes to information about the novel coronavirus. That survey showed that just 36 percent of respondents believed the information from the president was credible. When it came to Fauci, 67 percent expressed trust in the public health official, while 20 percent said they did not trust him.

2. That's about the level of his "strongly approve" support. He's got 15% of his support that's soft.

4. Yes, Indeed

Yesterday, a poll showed 27 our 40 approvers do so strongly.
40%, bad.
27%, strongly approve, bad.
13% willing to change their mid, really bad.
