Forty-one percent of registered voters approve of Trump’s management of the public health crisis while 53 percent disapprove, according to a May 29-June 1 poll, his worst marks since Morning Consult began tracking public opinion on the pandemic in February. The survey polled 1,989 registered voters and has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.

The 12-point gap, double the deficit measured in a May 21-25 poll, is the first notable movement in weeks from a metric that has been relatively stable since perceptions of Trump’s coronavirus handling slipped underwater in late April.

The change was driven by Republicans and independents, as the vast majority of Democrats were already vehemently displeased with the president’s response to the pandemic.
