Taking Charge: Trump’s Coronavirus Approval Ratings Climbing Fast

A new poll from ABC News shows that the American public likes what they’re seeing from President Donald Trump as he leads the United States through one of the most difficult crises in our country’s history. While critics and opponents like Joe Biden are using this perilous time to slam Trump and make their case for a Democratic-controlled White House, the public is watching Trump take charge of the pandemic response and evaluating him according to the merits – not according to what his detractors are saying on MSNBC.

“In the new poll, 55% of Americans approve of the president’s management of the crisis, compared to 43% who disapprove,” reported ABC News. “Trump’s approval on this issue is up from last week, when the numbers were nearly reversed. Only 43% approved of Trump’s handling of the pandemic and 54% disapproved in last week’s poll.”

The report continued:

Over the course of a week, the president has shifted his approach and tone, giving daily briefings on the crisis since Saturday, alongside the White House task force leading the response to the coronavirus and announcing some severe measures to combat the virus.

During the two days in which the poll was conducted, the president signed an economic relief bill to help combat the coronavirus, ensuring free testing and paid leave for certain workers, governors and local leaders across the country have imposed more stringent restrictions on travel and day-to-day movements, trading on Wall Street was halted again after the stock market continued to plunge and the number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus hiked to over 9,000 across all 50 states.

Trump referred to himself as a “wartime president” on Thursday, and no one can deny the description. We are facing, as the president has said many times, an “invisible enemy” which is made all the worse by the unfortunate reality of asymptomatic transmission. In other words, people who do not seem to be sick at all are passing this virus on to others at a rate of approximately 1-3 people per infected individual. This is what causes exponential growth, and it’s why countries like Italy and Spain were seemingly fine three weeks ago and are now facing an existential crisis in hospitals from border to border.

Hard times call for hard decisions, and President Trump has proven himself capable of rising to the task. He has surrounded himself with experts from every sector, and he has struck a calming – but not blindly optimistic – tone in his daily briefings to the public.

It has been an exceptional approach, especially when the Washington press corps is still more focused on fake news and “catching” the president in a gotcha moment than they are in getting information out to the public. For Trump to remain calm while idiot reporters are shouting about racism and debunked myths about the White House pandemic response office, well, it shows you how immune he’s grown to the nonsensical blathering of the liberal press.

It seems from this poll that the American people, also, have tuned out the partisan noise.

  1. And now for reality on most of the polls across the country…

    Trump has major credibility problem nearly most of country believes he’s NOT telling the truth. I believe he has let the experts speak for him. I know he wants to show that he’s in control. But the problem is he says is never wrong. We all know he is far from perfect.

    The Democrats are now forcing him to wake up to reality and they put their foot down on how the stimulus package is going to look like. Democrats are putting people and small businesses first and that’s great news.

    Trump will have NO CHOICE as Democrats are in control of the House.

    • Trump has been a silver spoon in his mouth failure since I heard of the deadbeat in the 70s. Takes his inheritance from daddy and loses his butt til the next failed venture. As a Dem I enjoy watching him flail away like a modern day Don Quixote. Hope a Republican can tell Trump who Don Quixote was.

      • You are but another that hates Trump. So WHAT if he inherited money. At least he didn’t get rich like many Senators and Representatives, both parties, while serving in government on a salary that does not lead to wealth. I care less about where or how Trump got his money and more about what he is doing and trying to do for our country and me and you. Apparently you are suffering from TDS and cannot see, or even want to, what he has already done for America in SPITE of 100 % opposition from Democrats who want him to fail along with the country so they can move in and take over. A prosperous America does not sit well with Democrats because people are less dependent upon government and Democrats WANT people dependent upon government so they will vote and keep them in office. If Trump is flailing I sure don’t see it. He has accomplished much but with your blinders on you absolutely have to be a Democrat, Leftist, progressive or Liberal (U pick one) which means you are clueless to reality and would prefer to be ruled as a subject by Democrats instead of as citizen under Trump.

    • You are wrong on several points. News sources, and even Leftist ABC credits Trump with taking action, and his approval rating in handling the crisis and leadership is soaring, much to the chagrin of Democrats who want him to fail. I have not read, anyplace where anyone except yourself says Trump is not telling the truth. How often do YOU admit you were ever wrong to anyone about anything? As to the Democrats, you are believing their load of nonsense. They are NOT for the people but for the party. The House and Senate had ironed out a relief package and here comes Pelosi and Schumer to add stuff to the Bill that has not a thing to do with the Coronavirus but plenty do to with making points with constituents. Mitch McConnell cancelled the vote because of it. Don’t tell me or anyone else Democrat are for the workers. Maybe it looks that way but in reality but underlying their supposed care for the common man and businesses they are trying to push and further their own political agenda actually at the expense of the common men, women and businesses. Why on earth would you or anyone else believe Democrats, with their massive track record of self-serving? They WANT America and Trump to fail so they can pick up the pieces and are constantly at work at that goal. The virus fell right into their laps. You should examine any Democrat action closely and you will see what I am writing about to you. Democrats do not want what is best for you and me, only what is best for the Democrat Party. A successful trump does not serve that purpose.

    • Democrats put their foot down? F*king idiot crooks! This is what they added to the bill to bail out America. Nothing to do with helping the people hurt by this bull pandemic!

      A bail out on all current debt at the Postal Service
      -Required early voting
      -Required same day voter registration
      -Provisions on official time for union collective bargaining
      -Full offset of airline emissions by 2025
      -Publication and reporting of greenhouse gas statistics for individual flights
      -Retirement plans for community newspaper employees
      -Federal $15 minimum wage
      -Permanent paid leave

      Read my editorial at and find out the truth of this whole scam!

    • I think you have it all wrong Trump doesn’t have a credibility problem the liberals like you do. Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler and the others are nothing but liars. Holding up passing something to help american people because Pelosi wants to fund abortions and other ridiculous requests is completely unamerican. People need to see that democrats don’t care at all about them they only hate Trump and this too will blow up in their face. Pelosi loves to talk about her religion she’s a joke and I know I would never want to sit next to her, she just might burst into flames.

    • I am a small business and when YOU fell out of that stupid tree, you hit every limb.
      President Trump has the Dumbocrats right where he wants them … TRAP SET.
      Just wait until the American taxpayers realize what the TRAITORS holding the majority in the House of Representatives are using as reasons to hold up the aid that is needed by the taxpayers.
      The Dimwit party cannot force anyone to wake up to reality, because their reality is somewhere between moron and stupid a$$.
      And President Trump has all kind of choices. NOTHING CAN STOP WHAT’S COMING!
      TRUMP/PENCE ~ KAG ~ 2Q2Q

    • These are probably the same polls that had hillary winning the election. President Trump not telling the truth, compared to obama he is very honest. Credibility problem, obama only had credit for lying and trying to destroy our Country. Democrats never put people and small businesses first, only themselves. If people would just take the time to educate themselves, look back in history and now in Venezuela that were oil rich until socialism took over. The so called democratic party has now gone so far left they should just call themselves the socialist party. Communist or socialist, whatever you want to call it, never puts the people first.

  2. Yeah, yeah… Trump Derangement Syndrome harder to kill than Coronavirus. People don’t even know they have it – spread by CNN ans MSNBC!

  3. These people that are being herded to the liberal socialist life have no clue what they are in for. I would feel sorry for them if they weren’t trying to drag down the people who know better and can think for themselves.

  4. Dumb Democrutes, Were the Kennedy’s Democrutes? How did they make all their fortune and bigger than Trump’s. Bootleggers or crooks, things haven’t changed a bit. FDR slaughtered hogs to raise the price during the depression when people were starving. I think he also was a Dumbocrat. Brag about the dems having the power in the House so they could blackmail to get their bogus , socialist waste, we will see next election how many are left. That is if they don’t let anymore prisoners out to vote DEM. Sick SOB
