Trump’s Approval Ratings During Coronavirus Outbreak Will Make His Critics Cry

(Liberty Bell) – According to a new poll, a majority of Americans now approve of President Donald Trump’s leadership during the coronavirus outbreak.

On Friday, an ABC News/Ipsos poll released on Friday showed that 55 percent of those surveyed said that they approved of Trump’s handling of the spread of the coronavirus while 43 percent said they disapproved.

This marks a dramatic increase in a period of just one week as the president and his administration work tirelessly to battle the outbreak within our borders.

One week ago, the same poll found 54 percent of those surveyed said they disapproved of Trump’s handling of the situation and just 43 percent approved.

WND notes:

Over the past week, the president and his administration have taken drastic measures to stop the spread of the virus and assure the public that the full resources of the federal government are at work.

Trump has also been highly visible during daily media briefings from the White House.

While a number of Democrats have harshly criticized Trump’s handling of the crisis in apparent attempts to gain political traction, it appears that many Americans have nonetheless have decided Trump’s response has been appropriate — which could explain the 12-point swing in favor of the president.

The poll from this week asked Americans about how their daily lives and livelihood has been impacted by the virus.

Roughly three-quarters of respondents said that the threat of the virus has forced them to change their plans or schedules, and 72 percent reported being forced to postpone or cancel plans.

Of those who report disruptions to their lifestyles, 57 percent said that they’d abandoned plans to dine out, while 35 percent canceled a vacation.

Thirty-three percent reported having canceled plans to attend a religious service while 32 percent said they’d changed plans to attend a sporting event or concert.

Meanwhile, many have changed their plans for voting. 11 percent of those who responded to the survey said they’d avoided voting in person.

One week ago, 73 percent of those surveyed by the same poll reported not canceling or delaying events in their lives, the number dropped to 28 percent among respondents from this week.

WND notes that “The ABC News/Ipsos poll was conducted between March 18 and 19, and surveyed a total of 512 adults, with a margin of error of plus- or minus-5 percentage points.”

  1. Trump had it right all along! He said it was just a hoax and nothing more than the flu that people die from all the time! If it was up to all the stupid Dems we would all just “hunker down” and try not to share germs and save peoples’ lives, like the elderly and those who are weak! Have we all forgotten the law of the jungle? Let the strong survive! That’s how we “thin out the herd.” Let the strong survive! Fortunately, we have a leader who sees through all this liberal propaganda! We have a President who is a Stable Genius and knows as much about science as most scientists. Remember how he pointed that out the “experts” that day he was touring a lab? Thankfully for us he chose being the greatest, most humble, most honest, and smartest President the USA has ever had! While all the idiot Dems are hiding out listening to all the fake doctors and scientists and trying to save lives, President Trump shows what is truly important and that is the Economy! We all die someday, and besides,as he pointed out to us in all his wisdom, he will be saving thousands of lives anyway from those who were going to commit suicide! God always has a plan and He knew this kind of trial would come up and annointed Donald Trump the Chosen One to save us! God Bless DT!!! Four More Years!

  2. I agree with all the comments but OleDad and RKing nailed it and understand the position or country is in and how we got there Bravo Guys. HooWah Brothers!!!!

  3. The Democrat Party will cease to exist as a viable political entity in the wake of the 2020 elections! That’s one helluva prognostication, but wouldn’t it be nice?

    • I AGREE WHERE WAS THE HYSTERIA OVER THE H1N1, MERS, SARS, HONG KONG FLU IN 1968 (I had that one and was very sick), AND EBOLA! THIS IS ALL DEMOCRAT LIBERAL HYPE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR PRESIDENT AT THE EXPENSE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE! DON’T FALL FOR IT PEOPLE AND QUIT HOARDING YOU ARE BEING SELFISH AND INCONSIDERATE OF OTHER PEOPLE! YES PEOPLE WILL DIE JUST LIKE OTHER FLU’S AND YES IT IS VERY CONTAGIOUS! USE COMMON SENSE WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN, DON’T TOUCH YOUR FACE AND KEEP YOUR DISTANCE FROM OTHERS JUST LIKE YOU DO WITH OTHER FLU’S!

  4. Anybody with a ounce of Brain knows he is a great leader, for the people. The rest of the Idiots don’t count. Vote Trump 2020 and Republican Forever.

  5. Democrats are angry that Trump is winning despite every evil tactic they’ve tried. This week shows their real depravity — holding up aid for the medical sector, small businesses, and tens of thousands being throw out of work due to COVID-19 for solar panels, Green New deal hysterics, and other Leftist fantasies.
    Democrats have proven beyond all doubt — despite their swarmy smiling sanctimony — they will watch the country burn as penance for Americans electing Trump over their Queen. They will sit and delay and scream like 5-year-old children, while their own constituents suffer. They are releasing violent criminals into our communities AND AT THE SAME TIME making it more difficult to buy guns and ammo for self-defense.
    They will burn Rome and blame the Republicans. If Americans will not let them rule the roost, they’ll bring in strangers who will vote for them, and ravage citizens. In my 72 years I have never seen a more anti-American group of politicians.

    • You hit the nail on the head with this one. Thanks for your outlook more of the younger people need to hear you. I’m not that old but have seen things change and go on with the world since the seventies and my military time. People need to be taught real history in schools and colleges instead of the socialist/communist propaganda they teach now. Parents need to take responsibility for their children and what they are learning. GOD needs to be put in the center of lives not just when something happens but at all times.
