[Ed. – The scales are finally dropping from voters’ eyes.]
Americans’ approval of President Joe Biden’s handling of the pandemic slipped to 53 percent, while his job approval rating fell more slightly, as concerns about the U.S. Covid-19 response mounted, according to a poll released Wednesday.
The poll was conducted by Quinnipiac University and surveyed attitudes about topics including Biden’s handling of Covid-19, the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the congressional investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection.
It comes just over six months into Biden’s term, as his administration faces the spread of the coronavirus Delta variant and political discord about differing mask mandates around the country. The president has also been touting his ability to get a bipartisan infrastructure bill passed in Congress, a feat his predecessor was unable to accomplish — and one that, if successful, could back up the White House’s messaging that Biden can get things done.
