A new poll conducted by The Associated Press – NORC, as published by USA Today News, highlighted that President Joe Biden has received the approval of the majority of Americans. The report also mentions that this approval stems largely from the president’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
There has also been a noticeable improvement in the overall optimism on the state of the country as recorded by the poll. 54% of Americans believe that the country is on the right track while 44% think that the country is on the wrong track.
These positive points are one of the highest recorded since 2017 and have encouraged the credibility of the White House. The rating stems from President Joe Biden’s first 100 days in office, with significant highlights as securing the $1.9 trillion relief package and boosting COVID-19 vaccines in all areas of the country.
A statistical analytical website, FiveThirtyEight, also has a live poll on President Joe Biden’s response to the pandemic and it shows that as of May 26, 63.1% approve of his response. It might be important to compare this figure with the last monitored rating of former President Trump resulting in 38.9% approval and a large 57.1 disapproval rate, as noted in January 2021.
A similar question on Quora, also prompted a response that ‘’the president had done a superb job’’, as the majority of Americans had been vaccinated and there is no need to wear a mask, once vaccinated. This comment had several upvotes showing that other Americans concurred with the comment.
