  Harvard University/Harris polling leader Payne said: "The growing number of problems in all areas has led to a surprising conclusion that Trump's approval rating is now tied with Biden, which shows that ( Biden's honeymoon period was replaced by buyer regret."

  Payne went on to say: "Trump lost the election by 5 percentage points. Now 51% of people think he is more suitable to be president. This is actually a big improvement."
