Trust in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has declined noticeably since April, a poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation says.

The survey, published Thursday, found 68% of people surveyed Aug. 28-Sept. 3, said they had a “great deal” or “fair amount” of trust in in Fauci to provide them with reliable information on the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes the respiratory coronavirus disease-19, or COVID-19.

But that was down 10 percentage points from April, driven mostly by Republicans, whose trust in Fauci dropped from 77% to 48%. Fauci’s reputation also fell with independents, 76% to 71%, but rose with Democrats, 80% to 86%.

The CDC’s reputation took an even bigger decline, falling from 83% to 67% from April to September. The agency’s reputation fell with all political demographic groups, but, again, mostly with Republicans, falling from 90% to 60%.
