Sumary of Trust in health agencies and Fauci remains strong, a poll finds, but personal doctors score higher.:
- Trust in the U.S. federal health agencies responding to the coronavirus pandemic remains strong among a significant sector of the American public, according to a new survey from the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania, but their deepest faith was closer to home.
- Respondents’ highest confidence, at 83 percent, was reserved for their primary health care provider.
- The agencies have been the targets of frequent criticism over their responses to the pandemic on an evolving variety of frequently politicized topics including testing guidelines, testing accessibility, vaccines, masks, school safety and more.
- In the survey, respondents who relied on conservative media were found to have a lower level of confidence in the health agencies and Dr. Fauci.
