63 percent approve of COVID-19 relief bill: poll

Source: The Hill



BY JORDAN WILLIAMS - 03/26/21 10:44 AM EDT

Sixty-three percent of Americans approve of the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill signed into law earlier this month, according to a Gallup poll released Friday.

The nationwide survey found that the American Rescue Plan Act, signed by President Biden on March 11, was disproportionately popular among Democrats.

The measure also did not garner the same level of overall support as the $2.2 trillion CARES Act that former President Trump signed into law in late March 2020. That bill was backed by 77 percent of respondents in a separate Gallup poll.

Congress passed the CARES Act with overwhelming bipartisan support, whereas the American Rescue Plan arrived on Biden's desk without any GOP votes.

3. Only 63%...?

I don't want to cast aspersions on Gallup, but I seem to remember approval rates in the 70%+ range from other pollsters before it was approved.
