Poll: Most Americans Positive About Ebola Response

In his latest column for The Wall Street Journal’s Think Tank, Drew Altman releases new Foundation polling data on the public’s confidence in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health authorities amid the response to Ebola in the U.S. Taken over the weekend, the latest poll finds a majority continues to express confidence in the CDC to handle the Ebola response, though it has fallen with criticism of the response and news about a second nurse being diagnosed with the disease.
