New Polling Shows Positive Trend in Satisfaction With Trump’s Coronavirus Response

New polling from Axios-Harris showed a positive trend in Americans satisfaction with President Trump’s response to the coronavirus crisis.

DailyCaller reports the latest Harris Poll contained some good news for President Donald Trump amid the federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Conducted using a nationally representative sample of 2,050 Americans over two waves, March 14-15 and March 17-18, the poll provided some quick feedback on how the public’s perception can change overnight even as the government shifts its response to a crisis in which the news seemingly changes by the hour.

Overall, both waves showed around 60% of Americans “satisfied” with how the federal government has handled the coronavirus crisis so far.

Of the president’s performance, 56% of the second wave approve of the way Trump has handled the COVID-19 crisis, with 44% disapproving. This is up five percentage points from the first wave, conducted only two days before. Meanwhile, Trump’s overall approval jumped four percentage points between waves, from 49% to 53%.
