Your Daily Roundup for July 1st
Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
Fauci warned us of a disastrous scenario:
In his testimony to the U.S. Senate, Dr. Anthony Fauci warned that if trends do not subside, the nation could experience 100,000 new cases each day.
Yesterday, the U.S. set a record of 48,000 new cases as spikes continued in Arizona, California, and Texas, among others.
The European Union is reopening its borders -- but not to the U.S.:
The E.U. reopened its borders today to travelers from 15 countries, but as virus cases soar in the U.S. it won’t allow American visitors.
Despite the onslaught of troubling economic news and the E.U. decision, Wall Street turned a blind eye. The stock market closed yesterday with its best quarter since 1998.
Americans disapprove of Trump and feel even worse about where the country is headed:
A new USA Today/Suffolk poll shows Trump’s job approval is nearly 20 points underwater:
- Approve: 40%
- Disapprove: 58%
But by an even bigger margin, the poll shows that Americans think the country is heading in the wrong direction:
- Right direction: 20%
- Wrong track: 67%
A poll from Politico/Morning Consult out today tells an even more devastating story:
- Right direction: 25%
- Wrong track: 75%
