There are some significant partisan splits on whether Americans trust Trump for their COVID-19 information. Nine in 10 Republicans (90%) trust the president to give them accurate information about the outbreak, compared to 14 percent of Democrats and 43 percent of Independents.
About three in five (61%) Americans between 18 and 29-years-old say they don't trust Trump to give them accurate information, but about half (51%) of Americans over 65 years old do trust the president.
Republicans are more likely (81%) than Democrats (72%) to trust friends and family for information on the coronavirus. On the other hand, Democrats are more likely (75%) than Republicans to trust their state governor (65%) for facts about the virus. Americans overall are the least likely to trust social media and online sources (77%) for accurate details on the COVID-19 outbreak.
