Donald Trump has tried to erase everything Barack Obama ever did during his time as president. Yet, what he cannot blot out is President Obama’s reputation. The polls indicate that the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden beats Trump in many aspects. However, there were two big surprises in this poll.
Most registered voters who participated in the latest Politico-Morning Consult Poll believed that 44 would do a far better job with the coronavirus pandemic that the man currently sitting in the Oval Office.
According to POLITICO, this random group of voters did place Trump at the forefront when they were asked to compare him to Biden. Fifty-two percent of the participants said Obama would have done a better job. Only 38 percent thought Trump would excel.
When asked how Trump did compare to Biden, 44 percent considered Trump the better coronavirus pandemic manager. Only 36 percent chose Biden.
This poll also questioned the participants about Trump’s overall job performance. Not surprisingly, 54 disapproved of it compared to 44 percent who approved.
Possibly, Trump’s televised daily coronavirus updates have given him a lead over Biden. As the pandemic continues, POTUS’s job performance has suffered. At this time, there have been 434,856 confirmed cases of the virus in the United States. Some physicians placed that number at an increase by a factor of 10.
The reason for this inconsistency was that only the worst cases have been counted in most instances.
Currently, the number of recovered cases was tallied at 24,058 cases, and the number of deaths nearly reached a significant 15,000. The actual number was 14,811.
Legislators have critiqued Trump for failing to do enough to protect Americans during the pandemic. The new poll showed that a full 50 percent of registered voters agreed. Only 38 percent agreed it was the appropriate amount.
The Politico-Morning Consult online poll conducted interviews among 1990 registered voters from April 3 to April 5. The margin of error was 2 +/- percentage points, which is statistically quite low.
