    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Fifty percent of US citizens approve how President Joe Biden handles his job, a poll by ABC News and The Washington Post published on Sunday said.

    According to the survey, 42% of the respondents disapproved of Biden as president and another 8% had no opinion.

    In addition, Biden is overall approved in his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic (62%). Another 31% opposed his policies in this regard and 7% did not have an opinion on the issue.

    In contrast, most of the respondents do not approve Biden’s policies on crime and handling of the immigration situation at the US-Mexico border – 48% and 51%, respectively. Only 33% said that they approved the president's way to resolve the border issue in spite of the increasing number of migrants trying to cross into the US, while 38% are satisfied with how Biden handles the issue of crime.

    The nationwide survey was conducted from June 27-30 via a phone interview of 907 people aged 18 and over with a margin of error at +/- 3.5%.
