image for Biden's secret to popularity: Do popular things on important issues

Biden's secret to success is simple: he's addressing the issues Americans care about, while his weaker issues are those that most Americans don't seem as worried about.

You can see this well in Gallup polling and a newly released ABC News/Ipsos poll.

Despite Biden getting no questions on it during his first press conference, coronavirus remains the top problem on Americans' minds.

According to Gallup, 25% say it is -- a percentage that hasn't fallen below 22% in the last seven months.

Indeed in poll after poll (including CNN/SSRS' poll ), Biden gets an overwhelmingly high approval rating on the coronavirus.

Likewise, Biden's Covid relief package that he signed into law earlier this month has polled well in poll after poll.

The bottom line is that as long as Biden does popular things on popular issues he'll continue to be popular. »
