Majority of Americans trust Biden to negotiate with foreign counterparts: POLL
A new ABC News/Ipsos poll finds that a majority of the American public trusts President Joe Biden to negotiate on the United States' behalf with other world leaders. Your browser does not support this video That level of trust -- 52% -- roughly tracks the president's overall approval rating, which averages 53%, according to FiveThirtyEight's tracker, and is about equal to the level of trust Americans have in Biden to negotiate with Russian President Vladimir Putin specifically.
Biden's overall approval rating stood at 54 percent and disapproval at 41 percent in April. However, the president is currently doing better among Republican voters despite a general decline.
The share of Republicans who believe the country is "going in the right direction" has also increased over the past two months. In April, just 9 percent of Republicans said the country was moving in the right direction. In the most recent survey, that number had jumped to 17 percent.

Just 59 percent of Democrats think the country is going in the right direction, down from 83 percent in April, while 32 percent of independents think the nation is on the right track. The figure for independents was 38 percent in April.
Biden and his aviators greet queen on a sunny afternoon
WINDSOR, England (AP) — President Joe Biden and his aviator sunglasses met Queen Elizabeth II on bright Sunday afternoon. The queen hosted the president and first lady Jill Biden at Windsor Castle, her royal residence near London. Biden flew to London after wrapping up his participation in a three-day summit of leaders of the world's wealthy democracies in Cornwall, in southwestern England. He arrived at the castle aboard the presidential helicopter and was ferried to the queen in a black Range Rover.
"Biden's rating is still in net positive territory, but it seems to have taken a dip with the growing uncertainty that his signature spending plans will be enacted," said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.
While Biden's large spending plans remain popular, including COVID-19 stimulus with 60 percent support and his infrastructure proposals with 68 percent support, most respondents.
A majority of Republicans (93 percent), Democrats (55 percent), and independents (70 percent) are at least somewhat concerned about Biden's plans leading to inflation.
Monmouth University enjoys an "A" rating from poll tracker FiveThirtyEight. That site gives Biden's average approval rating as 51.8 percent with disapproval of 42.4 percent.
