The confidence in Biden has increased steadily in all five issues since June, according to Pew, with the largest increase being 15 percentage points for the ability to bring the country closer together, increasing from 55 percent confidence in June to 70 percent in October. Those who were confident in Biden's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which has disproportionately impacted Latinos and other minority groups in the U.S., increased from 62 percent to 71 percent.

The report mentions that registered voters overall also show growing confidence in Biden tackling these same issues, but the confidence rating was lower and the increase more modest than among Latino voters.
