Polls: ‘Your state’s governor’ generic approvals over 70%

By David Wildstein, April 08 2020 3:36 pm

Two national polls released today show the generic “Your state’s governor” with approval ratings above 70% on their dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

A Monmouth University Poll puts “Your state’s governor” at a 72%-21%.

“Your state’s governor” has a generic 74%-24% approval rating in a national Quinnipiac University poll.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has national approval ratings of 78%-7%, according to Quinnipiac. The poll shows President Donald Trump’s national approvals at 46%-51%, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo nationally at 59%-17%.

“In a country gripped by crisis and divided by partisanship, public opinion is united when it comes to Dr. Anthony Fauci. Nearly 8 in 10 voters give him a resounding thumbs up for the job he’s doing responding to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Mary Snow. “That’s not the case for President Trump. More voters disapprove of his response than approve. Separately, they say he hasn’t acted aggressively enough in his response.”

The Monmouth poll shows that 35% of Americans trust Fauci most.  Trump was at 20% and Cuomo at 23%.

“Most Americans disagree with the Trump administration’s position that the federal government is a backup to the states. The public seems to view this as a national crisis that requires a national response on par with the aggressive approach taken by the states,” said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute.

Trump’s national approvals in the New Jersey-based Monmouth University poll are at 44%-49%.
