Public Does Not Trust Trump To Give Them COVID-19 Info
The chart above is from the NBC News / SurveyMonkey Poll -- done between July 27th and August 2nd of a national sample of 47,190 adults, with a 1 point margin of error.
It shows that 51% of the public trusts Dr. Fauci, and 55% trusts the Center for Disease Control to give them information about the Coronavirus pandemic. But far fewer trust Donald Trump -- only 31%.
About 69% of Republicans said they trusted Trump, and that skewed the survey. Only 13% of Independents and 2% of Democrats trust him.
Trump is not helping himself with his one-person press conferences on the virus, because most Americans simply don't believe anything he says about that.
