A newly released poll has found that President Trump’s approval rating for how he has handled the coronavirus outbreak has spiked over the last week.
“In the new poll, 55% of Americans approve of the President’s management of the crisis, compared to 43% who disapprove,” it was reported. “Trump’s approval on this issue is up from last week, when the numbers were nearly reversed. Only 43% approved of Trump’s handling of the pandemic and 54% disapproved in last week’s poll.”
The poll comes after China’s cover-up of the 16 November coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan has thrown the world into a recession and has upended life for billions of people across the world.
“Over the course of a week, the president has shifted his approach and tone, giving daily briefings on the crisis since Saturday, alongside the White House task force leading the response to the coronavirus and announcing some severe measures to combat the virus.”
During the 2 days in which the poll was conducted, the President signed an economic relief bill to help combat the coronavirus, ensuring free testing and paid leave for certain workers, governors and local leaders across the country have imposed more stringent restrictions on travel and day-to-day movements, trading on Wall Street was halted again after the stock market continued to plunge and the number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus hiked to over 9,000 across all 50 states.
Have a healthy weekend, stay home!
