Survey asks “well” or “chaotically”

Results of public opinion surveys sometimes turn on the wording of the question. Morning Consult / Politico reports this morning about a gradual change in results to this one: “Do you think President Donald Trump’s administration is running well or chaotically?”

When Morning Consult asked it in a March 1-5 survey, the results were 39 percent “well” and 54 percent “chaotically.”

The survey March 15-19 found 36 percent “well” and 58 percent “chaotically.”

The latest survey, conducted April 26-May 1 among 1,991 registered voters, showed 32 percent “well” and 62 percent “chaotically.”
