POLL: Only 23% “Highly Trust” Trump On COVID News

The Associated Press reports:

President Donald Trump has made himself the daily spokesman for the nation’s coronavirus response. Yet few Americans regularly look to or trust Trump as a source of information on the pandemic, according to a new survey from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

Just 28% of Americans say they’re regularly getting information from Trump about the coronavirus, while as many do so on occasion. Twenty-three percent say they have high levels of trust in what the president is telling the public, and another 21% trust him a moderate amount.

Confidence in Trump is higher among his supporters, though only about half of Republicans say they have a lot of trust in Trump’s information on the pandemic. While another 30% trust information he provides a moderate amount, 22% say they have little or no trust in what he says about the COVID-19 outbreak.
