Sixty-eight percent of voters in six key 2020 swing states are “somewhat” or “very” seriously concerned about the coronavirus, a 19-percentage point drop since April 3, according to a survey conducted by CNBC and Change Research.

The survey polled 3,544 likely voters in Arizona, Michigan, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin from May 1 to 3 and also found:

  • 71 percent say the U.S. is now in a recession
  • 52 percent disapprove of the way President Donald Trump has handled the outbreak, compared with 48 percent who approve of the job he is doing
  • 97 percent say it is important for small businesses and people who have lost jobs or wages to receive relief
  • 65 percent remain more concerned about the impact on their health and safety while 35 percent say they are concerned about the impact on their family’s financial situation
  • 44 percent have serious concerns about having to return to their place of work before they feel it is safe
  • 37 percent say they or someone in their household has lost a job or been furloughed as a result of COVID-19
  • 74 percent support recurring direct payments to individuals until the pandemic ends, and 66 percent support relief to state and local governments.

The survey has a margin of error +/- 2.54 percentage points nationally.
