    (CNN)President-elect Joe Biden will take office Wednesday with high expectations and largely positive reviews of how he has handled the transition, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS. But those rosy assessments of Biden come as negative perceptions of how things are going in the United States are at the highest level since 2009. Biden will take office with a store of goodwill in his corner: Two-thirds of Americans approve (66%) of the way Biden is handling the presidential transition, and his favorability rating has climbed 7 points compared with a pre-election poll in October (59% view him favorably now, compared to 52% then). The public is less positive about the way the rest of elected Washington is handling the transition. Most disapprove of President Donald Trump's combative handling of the time since the election (70% disapprove), and his fellow Republicans in Congress earn similarly negative reviews (66%...
    China’s state-run propaganda outlet Global Times concluded in an opinion column Sunday that the vast majority of Americans assume their state will soon collapse. The article, citing the alleged results of a poll from the Washington rumor publication Axios, referred to America as a “third world failed state” where citizens live in “distress, fear, and horror,” citing tensions prior to the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. The article follows weeks of an unprecedented resurgence of the Chinese coronavirus within its native country that has resulted in extensive lockdowns throughout the vast country, from the greater Beijing area to the city where the virus originated, Hubei province capital Wuhan. In articles placed significantly below the column predicting the complete demise of the United States, the Global Times admitted that 11 regions across China are under lockdown and that coronavirus testing experts in Hebei, the province surrounding Beijing, had falsified documentation to fabricate fake negative...
    Most Americans think that the QAnon conspiracy theory is ‘very bad’ for the country, according to new data from Pew Research Center.  Pew conducted the survey of 9,220 U.S. adults between Aug. 31 and Sept. 7, 2020, and found that 74% of Americans believe the conspiracy theory to be either ‘somewhat bad’ or ‘very bad’ for the country.

    Former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg made yet another stellar appearance on Fox News Sunday. This time, Buttigieg talked to host Chris Wallace about what President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris plan to do for the United States, especially when it comes to the novel coronavirus pandemic, because, as we know, COVID-19 numbers are once again skyrocketing. Buttigieg also got real about the big decision Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will have to make in the coming months and the Georgia Senate special elections this January. Let’s check out the exchange below. Control of the Senate is on the line. Can you give $3 each to Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock? As my colleague, Hunter, noted, the Trump administration is not expected to make any major moves when it comes to handling the pandemic before Donald Trump leaves office in January. On the other hand, as we count...
    Gage Skidmore / CC BY-SA (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0) In their 2012 book "It’s Even Worse Than It Looks," published before anyone imagined a Trump presidency, the political scientists Norman Ornstein and Thomas E. Mann incisively identified the root of Washington’s dysfunction. Radicalized by talk radio and amplified by social media, congressional Republicans had begun behaving like a parliamentary party: “ideologically polarized, internally unified, vehemently oppositional, and politically strategic,” they wrote. In a constitutional system with separation of powers, that “makes it extremely difficult for majorities to work their will.” In parliamentary systems, majority parties can affect their agenda almost unchecked. On the other hand, constitutional systems operate on norms, good faith, and compromise, which affords opposition parties enormous leverage to obstruct the majority. Once Republicans began employing maximalist tactics against the Obama administration—and found them effective in achieving their political goals—the democratic machine started to break down. Ornstein and Mann were animated...
    Accountants support reelecting President Trump by a wide margin, according to a survey conducted by Arizent, the publisher of Accounting Today. The poll found that 55% of respondents back Trump, while 38% support former vice president Joe Biden. Not only is the gap between support for Trump and Biden wide, but the anonymous comments from respondents also show that the division is quite polarized. “I believe a Biden-Harris win would destroy the country,” said one respondent who supports Trump. Another said, "I will close my business and retire if Harris/Biden is elected." Biden supporters were equally firm in their position. “I believe if Trump is re-elected, it will be a disaster for the country, the environment, and the health and well-being of the nation,” said one unidentified respondent who backs Biden. While support for their respective candidates is unfailing, respondents did agree that the upcoming election would...

    Only 29 percent of black Americans have a great deal or some trust in the police, according to a new survey from YouGov and Yahoo. This compares to 66 percent of white Americans who trust the nation’s police departments. The recent survey revealed the massive divide in opinion over how black people in America are treated by the police with white respondents voting against cuts to police funding and saying they feel safer with a police presence. The survey was conducted between June 9 and June 10 as protests against police brutality gripped the U.S., sparked by the death of black man George Floyd while in police custody on May 25. Yet, it also revealed that while the majority of respondents supported reforming the police and believe a change is needed, only 24 percent support defunding police departments.    According to a YouGov/Yahoo survey conducted on June 9 and 10,...
