Three-Quarters Of Americans Say They Have Confidence In Biden’s Ability To Govern
According to the AP-NORC survey, about 8 in 10 trust in Biden to incorporate the advice of experts and advisers into his decision-making. Roughly three-quarters have a great deal or some confidence in Biden’s ability to effectively manage the White House.
In the first week of his presidency, Biden signed dozens of executive orders, largely aimed at undoing the actions of the Trump administration. Among them: rejoining the Paris climate accord, pausing new oil and gas leases on public lands and reversing a Trump-era travel ban on people from several majority-Muslim countries.
About two-thirds of Americans say they at least have some confidence in Biden’s ability to handle the economy and jobs. He received similar ratings from the public on his approach to health care, race relations and climate change.
Just 20% of Americans say they have a great deal of confidence in Biden’s ability to work with Republicans in Congress, though another 45% say they are somewhat confident.
