Biden, Country Still on ‘Honeymoon’


A new AP-NORC poll finds 61% approve of President Joe Biden’s handling of his job in his first days in office.“Even at a moment of deep national divisions, those numbers suggest Biden, as with most of his recent predecessors, may enjoy something of a honeymoon period. Nearly all modern presidents have had approval ratings averaging 55% or higher over their first three months in office, according to Gallup polling. There was one exception: Donald Trump, whose approval rating never surpassed 50% in Gallup polls, even at the start of his presidency.”
