[Ed. – In fact, the media’s disapproval was higher than its approval.]
From among nine different leaders and institutions in the United States that are responding to the coronavirus, hospitals were ranked at the top with 88% approval by Americans, according to Gallup, and the news media were ranked last, the worst, with only 44% approval.
President Donald Trump received a 60% approval rating for his handling of the coronavirus and Vice President Mike Pence earned a 61% approval rating.
In the survey, Gallup asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way each of the following is handling the response to the coronavirus in the U.S.?”
For U.S. hospitals, 88% of Americans said they approve and 10% said they disapprove. In second place with 83% approval and 9% disapproval was “your child’s school or daycare.”
Government health agencies such as the CDC or NIH came in fifth place with an 80% “approve” and 17% “disapprove.”
