Majorities of Americans believe their governor cares about the safety and health of their community (63%) and has communicated a clear plan of action in response to the coronavirus (54%); majorities also generally have confidence in that leader to successfully manage emerging health challenges (53%).

The CDC is rated positively for caring, but falls short of majority support for communication and instilling confidence in its management of health challenges.

Trump, on the other hand, gets low ratings on all three dimensions, with no more than 36% agreeing that he is succeeding at the task.
