Few issues are likely to matter as much to voters in November’s presidential election as President Trump’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic crisis, which have left almost 200,000 Americans dead and prompted job layoffs and furloughs affecting tens of millions of Americans.
A new election brief compares President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden on their records, actions and proposals related to the pandemic and its health and economic consequences, including a detailed side-by-side table summarizing different aspects of their approaches. These matters have been generally viewed through a partisan lens by the electorate, a phenomenon well documented in KFF polling.
It is part of KFF’s ongoing efforts to provide timely and useful information related to the health policy issues relevant for the 2020 elections, including policy analysis, polling, and journalism. Find more on our Election 2020 resource page.
