Ninety-four percent of Democratic voters approve of Biden’s job as president, along with 62 percent of independents.

The survey, taken in the first two full days of his presidency, finds Biden receiving 61 percent support when it comes to the issues of the economy, stimulating jobs and fighting terrorism.

Fifty-seven percent of voters said they approve of Biden’s handling of immigration, and 60 percent say the same concerning foreign affairs.

Biden sees his strongest support on the issues of administering the government and handling the coronavirus pandemic, at 65 and 69 percent approval, respectively.
