It’s no surprise that small businesses are struggling, and so it’s probably expected that most support the massive stimulus bill that President Joe Biden is now pushing.
Nearly half of Republican business owners also desire the passage of that package, a survey shows, despite not liking Biden himself very much. According to the data, 14% of the GOP respondents approved of Biden, but 46% supported the proposal.
“There are more Republicans than Democrats who own small businesses,” said a research science manager for SurveyMonkey. “When we fielded the last survey it was after the election, but it was still in this interim period where…there was still maybe a little bit of doubt in people’s minds [about the outcome]. I think people’s perceptions may have hardened, whereas in December they were a little bit more up for grabs. Because this is the opening pitch from the Biden administration, it becomes easier to say yes or no.”
