The ABC/Ipsos Poll shows a sharp drop in how people think Trump is handling the pandemic. The survey taken July 6-9 shows 67% disapprove and 33% approve. The same question showed 58% disapproved in the June 16-17 survey while 41% approved. Back in March, 55% approved, according to ABC/Ipsos.
Trump's approval among independents lands at 26% in the survey, a sharp drop from 40% in mid-June, the last time the question was asked. Trump's disapproval among independents has risen to 73%, up from 59% in the June poll.
Within his own party, Republicans are less inclined to back him in the newest poll, with only 78% approving of the president's handling of the coronavirus, compared to 90% in mid-June. His disapproval of 22% in the new poll is a more than two-fold increase from last month.
The Ipsos Poll also says that 59% of Americans think the push to reopen the economy is moving too quickly.
67% Disapprove of Trump’s Handling of Race Relations
Trump receives a similar negative response in a question relating to the unrest that came after the death of George Floyd. “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Donald Trump is handling race relations?” Some 32% approve of Trump’s handling of racial matters and 67% disapprove.
Trump is seeing his approval broadly underwater for his handling of race relations, even across all racial groups. More than half (57%) of white Americans, and overwhelming majorities of black Americans (92%) and Hispanics (83%) disapprove of the president’s handling of this issue.
