Biden’s current approval rating for his handling of the coronavirus includes 95% of Democrats, 66% of independents and 34% of Republicans.

Republicans’ approval for Biden’s pandemic response is 22 percentage points higher than their approval of his overall job performance. Among independents, the gap is 13 points, while Democrats offer nearly unanimous approval of both dimensions.
