According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, the majority of Americans oppose President Trump's decision to pull the U.S. from the Paris climate deal, are skeptical of the argument that the move will help the U.S. economy, and are concerned the country's global leadership role will be negatively impacted as a result. Per the Post:

  • 59% of those surveyed oppose Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris accord, while 28% support it.
  • 42% think the move will hurt the U.S. economy, 32% think it will help, and 20% say it will "make no difference."
  • 55% said the president's decision will hurt U.S. global leadership, 23% expect no impact, and 18% said it will help.

Why it matters: Trump's move was a direct appeal to his core supporters, but outside the base it was a very unpopular decision. It remains to be seen whether climate change will be a mobilizing issue for voters, though.

Fighting the coronavirus infodemic

An "infodemic" of misinformation and disinformation has helped cripple the response to the novel coronavirus.

Why it matters: High-powered social media accelerates the spread of lies and political polarization that motivates people to believe them. Unless the public health sphere can effectively counter misinformation, not even an effective vaccine may be enough to end the pandemic.
