Joe Biden’s response to coronavirus has ranged from shaky to nonexistent.
The American people took notice.
A new poll by legendary pollster Scott Rasmussen asked: “Which of the following Democratic officials have provided the best leadership in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic?”
Biden–who essentially clinched the Democratic nomination with Bernie Sanders dropping out of the presidential race earlier today–was selected by just 6% of responders.
Leading the Democratic field was New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, whose near-daily televised press conferences from the nation’s hardest-hit state have made him a darling of the liberal left. Cuomo was selected by 30% of respondents.
In a distant second was California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who also has attracted attention for his public responses. Newsom
Behind Newsom was Sen. Bernie Sanders with 9%, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with a paltry 7%, followed by Biden with 6%, and Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer with just 2%.
Most surprisingly, 34% of respondents picked “None of the Above.”
President Trump’s own approval on coronavirus has remained strong, even if it’s on a downward trend from his late-March highs.
According to a recent poll from IBD/TIPP, a plurality of Americans approve of Trump’s coronavirus response: 43% like the job he’s doing, while just 41% do not.
