  • A Question of Trust...

    on the pandemic. This is what happens when a president abdicates his responsiblity to lead the nation.

    Americans have significantly more confidence in their governors than in President Donald Trump when it comes to handling the coronavirus, according to new data from an NBC News/SurveyMonkey Weekly Tracking Poll.

    Forty-three percent of respondents approve of Trump's handling of the pandemic, while 55 percent disapprove.

    That's compared to 60 percent of Americans who say they approve of how their governors are handling the response and just 37 percent who said they disapprove.

    And 7 out of 10 Americans say they trust their governors over the president to decide when to reopen businesses in their area. Just 25 percent say they trust Trump over their governors. Even among Republicans, just over half — 53 percent — say they trust the president's judgment on reopening over that of their governors.

    The data come from the first installment of a weekly online tracking poll on social and economic issues that will be released over the coming months.

    More than 2.9 million cases of COVID-19 and more than 131,000 deaths in the U.S. have been attributed to the virus, according to NBC News' analysis.

    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

      Trump has characterised his power/authority as President within this situation as "TOTAL".

        Just as a point of methodology, is there a reason why they polled 3,000 more democrat/democrat-leaning respondents than republican/republican-leaning ones?

          No matter how it was done the whole story is not news to me, people like me have always trusted my local and State government more than the federal government under any President.

            Just because he says so, doesn't make it so.

              So are you saying that Trump is just a figurehead and has no leadership responsibilty in a crisis?

                    That is not what I said and you know that perfectly well. I said Since Trump has no authority to open or close individual states the public had better trust their Governors.
                    This is in direct response to the portion of the quote that was highlighted nothing more.

                    Stop trying to put words in my mouth.

                      I merely asked you a question. Sit down before you hurt yourself.
