Your Daily Roundup for July 29th
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:
21 states are in the “red zone”
A new federal report shows that nearly half of all states are in the “red zone” of community spread of COVID-19, and should implement new measures to slow the spread. Those states have had more than 100 new cases per 100,000 residents in the past week alone.
Members of the White House coronavirus task force are urging states to tighten restrictions, while President Trump calls on states to reopen and continues to push narratives around the use of drugs that have shown to be ineffective at best.
Colleges are becoming a new source of virus cases:
Despite most colleges not being back to full session yet, they have become a new source of COVID-19 cases. At least 6,300 cases from about 270 colleges have been reported so far. Several colleges, including the University of Texas and University of Florida have reported over 200 cases.
Trump’s job approval has inched up to the mid-40s:
A new national poll from CNBC/Change Research shows that President Trump’s job approval is now in the mid-40s, but he is still 12 points under water:
- Approve: 44%
- Disapprove: 56%
The poll finds that the economy is now the top issue among voters (52%) followed by COVID-19 (48%) and health care and the cost of prescription drugs (36%). Racism and discrimination is also a major concern for voters as protests continue for the third month (32%).
