President Donald Trump has been determined that schools reopen in autumn, although he has given little to no guidance on how that should happen, in a way that won’t lead to further outbursts of the coronavirus.
Business Insider however reports that the President Donald Trump’s haste to get schools open may already be backfiring.
As proof, the publication mentioned several national polls that exhibit opposition to Trump’s plans.
“A Politico/Morning Consult national tracking poll released on Wednesday found that 53% of voters oppose ‘fully reopening’ daycares and K-12 schools, 50% oppose a full reopening of colleges and universities, and 65% oppose Trump’s threats to pull federal funding from schools that don’t re-open,” Business Insider reports.
Also, a new Navigator survey ascertains that “35% of parents support how Trump is handling the issue of whether to reopen schools compared to 51% who oppose,” which hints that his focus on getting schools open isn’t helping him with local mothers like he believes it will.
The fact that President Donald Trump has publicly criticized his Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines to safely reopen, calling it costly and burdensome, makes things complex.
