Rasmussen Reports released results of a poll Wednesday that said 45 percent of likely voters believe the first thing Joe Biden should do when he takes office is do more on the national level to fight COVID-19.

Nothing else is even close. Reversing President Donald J. Trump’s executive orders finished as runner-up with just nine percent.

If you’re curious, five percent said Biden should raise taxes on corporations and wealthy Americans first, four percent said loosening border control and legalizing the status of DREAMERS should be the top priority and two percent said an emphasis should be police reform. Two more percent said reentering the Paris climate accord should be tops on the list.
