Far more Americans approve of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s handling of coronavirus than President Donald Trump’s, according to a Fox News poll published Thursday.
Fifty-one percent of people polled approve of Trump’s response to coronavirus, while 77% percent of respondents approve of Fauci’s.
Trump’s approval rating hit 49%, up two points since February. Fauci’s approval has also declined 3% since last month.
Vice President Pence’s approval ratings are slightly higher than Trump’s in the Fox poll, with 52% of Americans approving of his response, down from 55% in March.
Trump’s approval rating numbers took a dip in March as coronavirus continued to spread. But recent polling for the president has been trending upwards. (RELATED: Latest Harris Poll Has Some Good News For President Trump On Coronavirus Response)
