Biden receives high marks on Covid-19

News Desk

As President Joe Biden confronts a set of concurrent challenges, he receives high marks on his top priorities—the coronavirus pandemic and the economic recovery.

Still, there are warning signs for other areas of his agenda where external events have imposed new urgency, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll finds.

The president’s approval lands at 72% for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, numerically higher than the 68% of Americans who said the same earlier this month just before Congress passed his $1.9 trillion relief package, his first major legislative achievement.

Only 28% disapprove of his response in the poll, which was conducted by Ipsos in partnership with ABC News using Ipsos’ KnowledgePanel.

A significant slice of the country also backs how Biden is handling distribution of the Covid-19 vaccines, with 3 in 4 Americans approving.
