It seems as though Joe Biden is already winning over the American people.


Latest poll results have shown that his popularity is growing amongst some people.

The news comes after the new president has already got down to work.


You've got to admire his spirit if not anything else.

Clearly, he's not in the mood to waste time.


Just one week into his presidency, Biden has been busy dismantling a whole array of controversial Trump-era regulations.

For example...


Mere hours after his inauguration ceremony, Biden fulfilled one of his top campaign promises by pledging to put the U.S. back in the Paris Agreement on climate change - an international pact aimed at curbing emissions that cause global warming.

Trump famously withdrew from the agreement in 2017, citing costs to American taxpayers.

And as for the country's ongoing racial division?


Well, Biden has already got to work on putting the pieces back together.

He first signed an executive order to promote racial equity.


Biden ordered his government to conduct equity assessments of its agencies and reallocate resources to "advance equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality."

He then reversed Trump's infamous ban on U.S. entry from majority-Muslim countries.


Biden's proclamation reversed Trump's policy that barred entry to the U.S. for refugees and residents from 7 predominantly Muslim countries and orders plans within forty-five days for resuming visa processing.

​He also reversed the decision to ban the trans community from serving in the military.


The controversial decision was initially passed by the Trump administration, but has since been reversed as soon as Biden came into power.

He has even brought back the plans for the face of Harriet Tubman to be put on the new $20 bill design.


This plan was originally proposed by the Obama administration but was then promptly stalled upon Trump's entry to the White House.

In a Monday press briefing, White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki said:


"It's important that our notes, our money... Reflect the history and diversity of our country, and Harriet Tubman's image gracing the new $20 note would certainly reflect that."

She added that the administration is "exploring ways to speed up that effort, but any specifics would, of course, come from the Department of Treasury."

And, on top of all that...


He has also been clamping down on the country's COVID-19 response.

Biden signed an executive order which created the position of COVID-19 response coordinator, who will advise the president and oversee the distribution of vaccines, tests, and other supplies.


An executive order requiring mask-wearing on federal property was also signed.

He is also working on making mutual respect a crucial part of his administration, an element that was seemingly missing from the previous.


Reports are circulating that Biden is looking to permanently remove the phrase "China Virus" from all government documents regarding the pandemic.

Now, we're all aware of the former president's fondness for the inflammatory phrase.


Trump first referred to COVID-19 as the "Chinese virus" or the "China virus" back in March last year and it was quickly adopted as a phrase used by other Republicans in order to humiliate and discriminate East Asians.

Trump always insisted that his label wasn't racist.


"It's not racist at all. No, not at all. It comes from China, that's why. It comes from China. I want to be accurate," the flustered former president told reporters at a White House daily news briefing last year.

The Biden transition team and White House Domestic Policy Council have been preparing executive orders that will remove racially offensive language following a surge in hate crimes against East Asians in America...


The "China virus" being one of them.

The Biden executive order is also expected to ensure agencies like the Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) will look into any xenophobic references to coronavirus.


All this in his first week? Now, that's what we like to call a leader that gets the job done.

So it comes as no surprise that polls are looking in his favor...

2 separate polls taken after Biden's inauguration have revealed the new president's rating is higher than Donald Trump's ever was throughout the entirety of his reign.

But the reactions to the results have been mixed...


While some people agree with them...

Others did not.


The first was conducted by Morning Consult.


It showed that 56% of those surveyed approved of the job Biden was doing as president so far.

The second was by Hill-HarrisX.


They put the rating even higher, settling at an applaudable 63%.

​Compared to Trump, who managed to achieve a reasonable 52% as his highest figure when similar polls by the companies were conducted.


And when you look at the larger community of polling, these 2 particular investigators have been kinder to Donald Trump especially when put side-by-side with with competitors liek Gallup.

They only recorded a 49% approval rating after the former president was acquitted of impeachment charges last year.


And they also recently recorded that he had got a very average approval rating of 41% at the end of his first week, which is the lowest of all presidents since before the Second World War.

They have yet to release their official figures on Biden.


With many challenges still yet to come for this new administration, and the carnage that was left behind in the wake of the Capitol Riots earlier this month, let's hope Biden and his team can restore some peace to the nation, as well as minimize the divide between people on either side of the fence.
