As the United States faces twin crises of high unemployment and a global pandemic, large majorities of Americans want Joe Biden and Congress to prioritize strengthening the economy and addressing the coronavirus outbreak in the coming year. Currently, about eight-in-ten Americans say strengthening the nation’s economy and dealing with the coronavirus outbreak should be top priorities for the president and Congress to address this year. Two-thirds rate improving the job situation as a top priority. Economic concerns rank near the top of the policy agenda for Black, White and Hispanic adults. However, there are major differences in their views on the importance of other issues, especially race, poverty, education and criminal justice.
