The Power of Perception

It seems that voters who are tuned in to the rescheduling debate and the president’s role in it view him more favorably. Of course, it’s important to note that Biden doesn’t have direct control over the final decision. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recommended the rescheduling, but the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has the “final authority.”

**The survey asked respondents whether President Biden should “accept” or “reject” the HHS Schedule III . A significant 66 percent said he should accept it, and among young voters aged 18-25, a whopping 83 percent supported acceptance.**

Independents also showed strong support at 55 percent, while Republicans were more divided, with 41 percent in favor and 31 percent opposed. Interestingly, support grew among Republican women and young conservatives.

Overcoming Opposition

Even when respondents were presented with negative arguments against rescheduling, support remained strong at 58 percent. Opposition only dropped by one percentage point. On the flip side, positive arguments for rescheduling also had minimal impact, as they mischaracterized the reform’s actual impact.

A Closer Look at Favorability

In terms of favorability, marijuana itself polled at 51 percent, with about half of respondents holding “very” favorable views. Biden had a 41 percent favorability rating, while Trump’s favorables stood at 42 percent. The cannabis industry, interestingly, came in at 48 percent favorable.

Behind the Survey

The survey was conducted from October 2-9 and involved interviews with 900 likely voters, including oversamples of 100 younger voters aged 18-25 and 200 swing state voters. The margin of error is +/- four percent.

Biden’s Cannabis Actions
