The American public is rapidly losing confidence in President Donald Trump's ability to handle the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. The latest ABC News/Ipsos poll out Friday shows that just 33% approve of his handling of the pandemic. 67% disapprove. Of the roughly 350 polls on the subject, this is the highest percentage of Americans who disapprove of Trump's performance on the COVID-19 crisis. When counting polls from June, on average, Trump's overall disapproval rating stands at 57%. That's the highest it's been this entire pandemic. According to CNN, even Trump's supposedly rock-solid base is losing patience with him. Trump's approval rating among Republicans in an average of polls over the last few weeks is now just under 80% -- his worst yet on the coronavirus.
