A poll found people in the United States trust President Trump slightly more than the national media to give them accurate information about the coronavirus.

A total of 44% of people say they trust the Trump administration to give an accurate account of the virus and tell them what to do during the pandemic, a CBS/YouGov poll found. Forty-three percent of respondents said they trust the national media to do the same. The poll was conducted with 2,190 U.S. residents interviewed between March 21-23 and has a margin of error of 2.3 percentage points.

The article goes on to state the following:

Trump has used daily briefings in recent days to provide updates on a virus that has infected at least 53,000 people in the U.S. and lead to more than 700 deaths in the country.

The poll also found that Americans are “staying calm and hopeful most of the time amid the outbreak, punctuated with feelings of nervousness and stress — especially for those who aren’t going out, and particularly for those concerned they’ll get the virus themselves.”

“Few feel lonely often, even among those not leaving the house, and most remain optimistic that their fellow Americans will take steps needed to stop the spread,” CBS News reports.
