Your Daily Roundup for April 1st
Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
Good afternoon. Here are the latest news and updates that our team at Future Majority is tracking.
It’s April 1st. A month ago, politics in America looked completely different:
The Democratic Primary race had 7 candidates — now we’re down to 2. The coronavirus pandemic was likely not top of mind for most Americans — a national emergency was only declared on March 13th.
The COVID-19 crisis has upended life in America and put a big question mark around what politics will look like for the rest of 2020 leading into November’s elections.
New polling shows Trump’s approval for how he’s handling the crisis is back to an even split:
After a modest bump, a new Navigator Daily Tracker poll has Trump’s crisis management approval at about even:
- Approve: 49%
- Disapprove: 48%
This is a seven-point swing in the past few days. And when it comes to how Trump is handling healthcare generally, his approval does not fare as well:
- Approve: 44%
- Disapprove: 51%
And an Ipsos/Daily Beast poll shows that a vast majority of Americans are not buying what Trump is selling. When asked if the statement “anyone who wants to get tested for the virus can get tested” was true, respondents said:
- Not True: 73%
- True: 17%
Here’s what to expect over the next few months in the Democratic primary:
