Just over half of Americans approve of the job President Biden is doing as he approaches the 100th day of his term, NBC News and ABC News/Washington Post polls out Sunday indicate.

Why it matters: Biden has spent trillions within months of taking office to combat the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, while overseeing a national vaccination campaign and facing backlash for a growing humanitarian crisis at the border.

Where it stands: Biden has a 53% approval rating in NBC's poll and a 52% approval rating in polling from ABC News/Washington Post.

  • "Biden’s job rating is higher than Donald Trump’s was at this same point in time in the poll (40 percent approve, 54 percent disapprove), but it’s lower than Barack Obama’s was at 100 days (61 percent approve, 30 percent disapprove)," NBC News' Mark Murray reports.

Methodology: NBC News surveyed 1,000 adults from April 17-20, including 600 respondents with a cell phone only, with a margin of error at ±3.10%. Margin of error for 790 interviews with registered voters is ±3.49%. 

The ABC News/Washington Post poll conducted by cellphone and landline April 18-21 in English and Spanish among a national sample of 1,007 adults. Margin of error ±3.5 percentage points. Partisan divisions are 33%-24%-35%, Democrats-Republicans-independents.

Axios-Ipsos poll: The blame game

Americans place the most blame for rising COVID-19 cases and the spread of new variants on the unvaccinated, people from other nations traveling to the U.S. and Donald Trump, according to the latest installment of the Axios/Ipsos Coronavirus Index.

Why it matters: The findings expose a surreal gap between the views of the vaccinated and the unvaccinated, showing how tough getting to herd immunity could be — and providing new evidence that mandates could make a difference.

Survivors and families of the victims of 2019's deadly mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, have filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the 100-round, large-capacity magazine (LCM) used by the shooter, CNN reports.

Why it matters: The suit targets the manufacturer's decision to make and market 100-round magazines for the general public "without any reasonable restrictions or conditions," Jonathan Lowy, an attorney representing the families, said Monday, per CNN.

Two Canadians imprisoned by the Chinese government for over 1,000 days have been released and are expected to arrive in Canada on Saturday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Friday.

Why it matters: Their release comes hours after Huawei Technologies CFO Meng Wanzhou reached a deal with the U.S. Department of Justice that resolves the criminal charges against her and could pave the way for her to return to China.
