Joe Biden’s election as the 46th president of the United States comes at a time when the entire country is struggling under the weight of the pandemic and internal rifts. This report delves into the expectations of ordinary Americans as they look toward their new leader to restore the country back to normalcy. Campaign managers can leverage this data in their decision making.

President-elect Joe Biden may still be in the process of taking over the reins of the country’s leadership, but he already has a long list of issues that need urgent attention, all at one go. Many of it would entail redoing or undoing decisions taken during the four years of Trump’s presidency. Coming to power with his message of peace and unity, president-elect Joe Biden has a lot of hope and expectations riding on him, especially as Americans pick up the pieces of the devastating and still ongoing pandemic. From economic revival and racism to foreign relations, what do voters expect from their new president? Piplsay polled 60,311 Americans to get some insights. Here is a summary of what we found:
