– Equal numbers of voters, 9 in 10, are concerned about the spread of coronavirus in the U.S. and that the virus will cause a recession.

– More than 4 in 10 say someone in their household lost their job or work hours because of the virus.

– The number of Republicans feeling “nervous” about the economy is up 26 points.

– Voters split over whether Trump’s response to the outbreak is appropriate, while one quarter feel most Americans are “overreacting.”

– When asked about Uncle Sam’s ability to check Mother Nature, more blame the government for the virus spreading the way it has than say it was unstoppable.
