A new poll has revealed many Americans believe President Joe Biden is taking credit for former President Donald Trump’s efforts to fight COVID-19 and other achievements.
A Zogby Poll provided to Secrets showed likely voters agreed by a 49 to 37 percent margin that Biden is taking credit for Trump’s achievements.
“Almost half (49%) of surveyed voters believe President Biden is taking credit for some of Trump’s accomplishments, mainly, vaccine rollout/distribution and the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan, while 37% of voters thought Biden accomplished the vaccine rollout and withdrawal of American troops all on his own; 14% were not sure.”
Regarding COVID-19, the poll showed, “During Biden’s first six months in office he has been overseeing a mediocre vaccine rollout, and he also called for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. Depending on who you ask, one has to wonder if Biden’s taking some of the credit away from former President Trump for these particular feats.”
It added, “To Trump’s credit he established Operation Warp Speed, passed the first stimulus bill, and was also first to publicly call for the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan, for which he was met with opposition from both sides of the aisle and the military establishment.”
The poll unsurprisingly fell along party lines. More than three out of four Republicans agreed (76%).
In contrast, 57 percent of Democrats agreed Biden “most likely to think Biden achieved these feats on his own.”
The poll reflects a general attitude held by many conservatives that Biden continues to take credit for Trump’s work rather than accomplishing his own.
