A newly released ABC News/Ipsos poll finds that the attempts of the media and the Democratic Party to bash Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic have failed to sway voters. In fact, since the last time they polled the question, approval of Trump’s response to the pandemic has swung hugely in his favor.
According to the poll, which was conducted March 18-19th, 55 percent of voters approve of the way Trump “is handling the response to the coronavirus.” The poll shows a dramatic shift in opinion from a week earlier when only 43 percent approved of Trump’s response to the virus.
This was not the only poll to show the public rally behind Trump during the pandemic. An Axios/Harris poll found virtually identical numbers in a survey conducted March 17-18th, with 56 percent of Americans approving of Trump’s response to the pandemic, up from 51 percent in their previous poll.
