The Republican Party's own base of voters is not buying what President Donald Trump is selling when it comes to his promise to deliver an effective COVID-19 vaccine quickly.

According to a recent survey conducted by ABC News and Ipsos, only 9% of Americans "have a great deal of confidence in Trump to confirm vaccine effectiveness," ABC News reported.

An additional 18% said that they had a "good amount" of confidence that a COVID-19 vaccine might be effective under a Trump administration.

Trump personally vouching for a vaccine leaves 69% of voters without confidence in the treatment.

When asked if they would take a "safe and effective coronavirus vaccine," only 64% of respondents said they would likely get it. That's a 10-point decrease from May, a drop which ABC News noted is almost entirely driven by Republican respondents.
