Sixty-one percent of those surveyed say that the Trump administration is running chaotically, compared with 32 percent who say it is running well, according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll released on Wednesday.
These are significantly worse numbers than in March, when 54 percent said the administration was running chaotically and 39 percent said it was running well.
The survey comes on the heels of explosive allegations from journalist Bob Woodward’s new book, “Fear,” which paints Trump as a reckless commander in chief lacking the respect of his advisers and Cabinet, as well as a New York Times column written by an unknown senior administration official who says there's a “quiet resistance” within the Trump administration.
Other details from the polls show:
- Sixty-five percent have heard “a lot” or “some” about the column, and 42 percent of voters say that when Trump officials publicly criticize the president, it makes them more comfortable with how the administration is running. Only 37 percent say it makes them less comfortable.
- Following the column's release, one-third say Trump’s staff doesn’t serve him well, a decrease from April, when 36 percent said the same.
- Forty-one percent believe the claims in Woodward’s book are credible, while 23 percent don’t find them credible.
The poll was conducted September 6-9 and surveyed 1,988 registered voters. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus two percentage points.
