US President Donald Trump

Three out of four Americans think that after a rise in new coronavirus cases and massive unemployment throughout the US, the country is out of control under Donald Trump’s administration, a new poll suggests.

Iran PressAmerica: A survey by YouGov on Thursday found that 75 percent of Americans believed their country was out of control, compared to just 14 percent who felt it was under control.

A further 11 percent of all polled US adults said they were "not sure" whether the country was "out of" or under control, Newsweek reported.

Older voters were more likely to say the US was "out of control" amid the ongoing pandemic. Eighty-one percent of those aged 65 and older told pollsters the country was in a fiasco, while 68 percent of those aged 30 to 44 felt the same way.

The downbeat assessments on the country's standing came as almost two-thirds of US adults (65 percent) said they believed the coronavirus pandemic was getting worse.

By comparison, just 16 percent of polled Americans felt the COVID-19 pandemic was getting better in the US as Florida, Texas, and Arizona reported influxes of new cases this week.

More than 55,000 new coronavirus infections were reported across the United States on Thursday, according to a New York Times database, as the country set a new daily case record for the sixth time in nine days.
