Struck Shoop President Trump seems to have a significant hill decline before the 2020 general election. Cuomo's Taylor Band Size takes a closer look at some new numbers. There's a new Washington Post ABC News poll that finds that fewer than 2/5 of Americans approve of the way that he's handling the covert 19 outbreak. Joining us with more on the pole is Washington Post polling director Scott Clement, 38% approval of the president's covert performance. How does that compare to earlier points in the pandemic? Well, it's significantly lower. When we first asked representative sample of Americans how Trump is handling the Corona virus outbreak in March 51% approved of how he was dealing with it. That dropped to 46% in May and as you mentioned 38% in the latest survey Disapproval, of course, has gone up at the same time. He's now at 60% disapproving of the way he's handling the issue and in a strong fashion to you right is that twice as many strongly disapprove. Now, that's right. 52% strongly disapprove of the way Trump is handling the outbreak, compared with 25% who strongly approved. And strong disapproval is also up from 36% in March. So we've seen a pretty start shift in attitudes over the last four months. A lot of people notice that we haven't had a White House briefing with the president specifically about Corona virus in some time how much of this comes down to credibility and what the president is saying? Well, quite a lot of Americans had doubts about comes honesty and trustworthiness going into the outbreak, but We ask people how much do you trust what Trump says about the current virus pandemic, 34% said they trust him. At least a good amount. 64% said they don't trust him much, or at all. 46% within that latter group. I said they they don't trust Trump comments on this issue at all. So he really I is facing a bit of a credibility problem, which could impact his ability. Teo turn those approval numbers around. The poll also asks just other general questions beyond presidential approval, like how some of us choose to or not to wear masks. And and it was interesting to me to see just how big of Ah chunk of us are kind of in solidarity right now wearing our masks everywhere. That's right. I can point out anyone can point out people that are not wearing that when people are out in public, But nearly eight in 10 Americans say that they're wearing a face mask. Either all of the time or most of the time when they're around other people outside their home, which follow CDC recommendations, 57% say they're wearing one all of the time without exception, so that still leaves about foreign 10 Americans who are wearing one all the time. But they're largely the public is following recommendations on this, and as far as American priorities are concerned what ranks hires controlling the spread of the virus or getting the economy going again, Americans still prioritized controlling the spread. I mean, that's a bit of a false choice. To be sure, there are ways to restart the economy and still control the spread, but 633% Coz, controlling the spread when forced to choose. That's actually up 6% points from late May, Uh, when 57% of a prioritized controlling the spread about 1/3 currently say they they would rather restart the economy even if it hurts efforts to control the spread.
