A new poll finds that most Americans do not trust Trump as a source of information on the coronavirus pandemic.
Guardian: According to a new AP/NORC poll, only 23% of Americans say they have high levels of trust in the information Trump shares. Another 21% say they have a moderate amount of trust in his information.
Like the president’s overall approval rating for his handling of the crisis, these numbers vary drastically when broken down by party affiliation.
While only 22% of Republicans say they have little or no trust in Trump’s information, 84% of Democrats say they have little to no trust in the president as a source of coronavirus information.
The poll comes as Trump continues to hold long daily press conferences on the pandemic, during which the president has frequently shared false or misleading information about the virus.
