Analysis:

President Trump's poll is up 0.50 points from the 
start of the year.  Not unexpected in the face of 
COVID-19 and is similar to the bump Bush got for  
both of his wars at the start.  The bungling of a 
response is forgotten for now.  This is a new high
score (44.50) breaking the old one by 0.10 points.

Quinnipiac had a drop in favorability of 3 points 
(39) and an equal rise in unfavorability (3) to a 
non-record high (60).  CNN held the same in his   
favorability (43), but went up two points (54) in 
unfavorbility.
