Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “More than 70 percent of Americans back Biden's pandemic response, but many are unhappy with the economy, poll finds”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

More than 70 percent of Americans approve of President Joe Biden's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new poll published by The Associated Press and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research on Friday.

Biden has been making the pandemic his focus since he was sworn into office two months ago and there are now some signs the numbers of COVID-19 deaths and cases are plateauing across the country.

At the time of writing, more than 520,000 Americans have died from the virus, according to a tracker by Johns Hopkins University.  Biden has promised to speed up the vaccine rollout, saying this week there will be enough vaccines for "every adult in America" by the end of May.

Support for Biden's stance on the pandemic has transcended party lines: Of the 70% that approved of the president's coronavirus handling, more than 40% were Republican.

The poll also found that a little less than two-thirds of Americans approved of Biden's overall job performance so far. Around 60% said they were in favor of Biden's handling of health care and race relations.
