WASHINGTON (AP) - A new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds wide support for several measures that have already been taken to prop up the U.S. economy, especially those aimed at helping individuals, small businesses and hospitals.

Nearly all Americans say they’re at least somewhat concerned about the impact of the virus outbreak on the economy, including close to three-quarters who call themselves very or extremely concerned.

In particular, 84% say they’re very concerned about the impact on small businesses, while far fewer are as concerned about the impact on larger corporations.

The poll finds mixed views of elements of the relief package intended to help larger industries like airlines.
