President Joe Biden has won the confidence of nearly two-thirds of Americans to get the population vaccinated and reopen schools, according to an Axios/Ipsos Coronavirus Index released on Tuesday.

Sixty-three percent said they are very or somewhat confident in the administration's ability to make the vaccines widely available, with 36% saying they're not very confident or not confident at all.

Other results from the survey indicate:

  • When asked if they're confident the administration can distribute the vaccines quickly, 58% said yes, while 41% said no.
  • Fifty-six percent said they're confident in the administration's ability to get K-12 students back to school in person, while 43% say they're not confident.
  • The results are very partisan, with 81% of Democrats confident about schools, 56% of independents, and only 29% of Republicans.
  • When we asked in late October, just before the election, if the federal government has gotten better or worse at handling the pandemic, 26% said better and 46% said worse. In this week's poll, those results had flipped: with 45% saying the handling of the pandemic has gotten better, with 26% saying it has gotten worse.

The promise of bringing competence and seriousness to the federal government's response to the pandemic is "Biden's bailiwick," said Ipsos U.S. Public Affairs president Cliff Young.

He said this means Biden will be judged on his results, stressing that if the safe reopening of schools and the ability to go to public places again keeps getting stretching out, “that could erode fairly quickly his underlying support," in probably less than six months.

The poll was conducted from February 19-22 based on a nationally representative probability sample of 1,029 adults.The margin of sampling error is ±3.3 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.
