The majority of Americans have far more faith and trust in Dr. Anthony Fauci and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo than President Donald Trump when it comes to novel coronavirus (COVID-19), according to a new poll.

A recently released poll from NBC News and the Wall Street Journal found that three out of five Americans trusted what Fauci and Cuomo said about the pandemic, with only 8 percent saying they do not trust what the infectious disease expert has to say.

The poll, which took place from Monday, April 13 through Wednesday, April 15, found that 46 percent trust Cuomo, with 17 percent saying they didn’t trust him.

In comparison, just 36 percent of those surveyed said they would trust Trump’s words about the pandemic, with more than half saying they did not trust him.

There have been 242,786 confirmed COVID-19 cases in New York since the outbreak, resulting in 13,896 deaths. There are still 16,303 COVID-19 patients being hospitalized and treated.

Complete results from the NBC/Wall Street Journal poll can be found here.
