President Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic is one of his highest approval ratings, according to a new Gallop Poll released Wednesday. The Gallop poll found that 60 percent of Americans approve of his handling of the situation, while only 38 percent disapprove.

“Ninety-four percent of Republicans, 60% of independents and 27% of Democrats approve of his response,” according to the Gallop poll website. “The Trump administration has received some criticism for its response to the COVID-19 pandemic — including that the president downplayed the threat, at least up until his nationally televised address on March 11. On March 16, Trump acknowledged the seriousness of the situation by urging people to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people and to have workers and students stay home if possible. The administration has had daily press conferences since then to update the nation on what the federal government is doing to address the situation.”

Moreover, according to the poll Trump’s overall job approval rating is at 49 percent, which is up from 44 percent earlier this month.
