More than half of Americans say they support President Joe Biden’s performance in office so far and approve of his sweeping infrastructure proposal, according to a NBC News poll.
The findings showed that 90% of Democrats, 61% of independents and 9% of Republicans approve of Biden’s presidency thus far, while 39% of respondents disapproved of his performance.
Biden also received support for his Covid-19 relief package passed in March and his $2 trillion infrastructure proposal intended to boost the post-pandemic economy.
Forty-six percent of Americans believed the president’s $1.9 billion coronavirus relief bill—which sent direct payments to citizens and extended unemployment insurance, among other moves—was a good idea, while 25% said it was a bad idea and 26% did not have an opinion.
In the same poll, 61% of respondents said they believe the worst of the pandemic is over in the U.S., while only 19% think the worst is yet to come.
