So far, Americans have largely supported using social distancing to slow the spread of the new coronavirus. But Democrats and Republicans see the situation differently.
According to a CNN poll, nearly three-quarters of Democrats said the worst of the crisis is still ahead of us, while only about a quarter of Republicans said the same. This marked a 15 percentage-point drop among Democrats since CNN last asked the question in April, and a 44-point drop among Republicans.
