Most Americans say they think it will be safe enough to attend a social gathering with more than 10 people sometime in June, according to a new poll released Tuesday.

The poll conducted by the Washington Post and University of Maryland surveyed 1,013 adults between April 14-19.

The results indicate:

  • 65% say they expect the pandemic to be under control enough to allow social gatherings by the end of June or later.
  • 9% say gatherings will be safe by the end of April.
  • 21% say gatherings will be safe by the end of May.
  • 20% say gatherings will be safe by the end of June.

The poll found that a majority of people asked said their state's governor's response was good. Seventy-two percent said their governor's response was good compared to 26% who said it was bad. 

The president did not fare as favorable as the governors in the poll. Fifty-four percent of those polled said Trump's response to the coronavirus was not good compared to 44% who said it was good. 

The poll has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
