Poll finds Falling confidence in Biden’s ability to rescue economy from pandemic

A new Axios-IPSOS poll finds waning confidence in President Biden’s ability to rescue the economy from the pandemic.

The poll found “Slightly less than half (44%) are confident it can ensure the economy recovers quickly after the COVID-19 pandemic. This represents an eight-percentage point decrease since late January 2021, shortly after Biden’s inauguration.”

More specifically, the steepest declines have come from:

Black Americans (-23 percentage points)

Democrats (-15 percentage points) and Independents (-9 percentage points)

Americans under age 50: those 18-29 (-12 percentage points) and 30-49 (-13 percentage points)”

The poll also finds only 21% are confident the Biden administration can convince skeptics to get the vaccine.
