The poll is no more than a snapshot in a rapidly evolving crisis, and opinions may change radically in the coming weeks as the death toll rises and the loss of jobs bites deep.
Holly Rasmussen: ‘I think he is staying extremely optimistic and I think that’s what a lot of us need.’
Cindy Anderson – doing her job in the payroll department of a mental health counselling service from home – thinks Trump is making the best of a bad situation.
But the 65-year-old is frustrated at what she regards as politicised attacks on Trump over his actions, or lack of them, early on in the crisis when she says the focus should be on how to get through this.
“I think that a lot of the news media, they don’t tell the whole story. They tell the piece that sounds the most damning and they don’t add the other piece,” she said.

Rasmussen is critical of the scorn poured on the president when he hesitated to call for businesses to close because of the economic impact. She said his concerns about the financial consequences were legitimate.
