Poll: Most Americans Do Not Trust Biden Admin, Fauci to Handle a Monkeypox Outbreak

Most Americans do not trust the Biden administration or Dr. Anthony Fauci to properly handle a monkeypox outbreak, a Trafalgar Group and Convention of States Action survey released Wednesday found.

“How much do you trust that the Biden Administration and Dr. Fauci will handle the Monkeypox outbreak properly?” the survey asked. 

Overall, 56 percent indicated that they do not trust them, and of those, 46.8 percent said they “don’t trust at all.” Another 39.7 percent said they trust the administration and Fauci to handle it, and of those, 27.7 percent said they trust them “very much.” 

Opinions are sharply divided along party lines, as 71.3 percent of Democrats indicated that they trust them to handle a monkeypox outbreak “properly,” compared to 83 percent of Republicans and 61.3 percent of independents who said they do not trust them to handle that situation properly. READ MORE
