The latest polls show that 47% of Americans believe that others are making decisions for Biden behind the scenes. I would honestly say it is more like 85%. People wrongly believe that being president means you are really in charge. That is such a fallacy it is laughable. That was the problem with Trump. He was firing people left and right when he first took office because he discovered that they had surrounded him with people who had no idea that he expected to be a real president as if he was running a corporation. That is not the way Washington runs.
Biden does not write these executive orders. He just signs them. The polls center on his mental ability to be president. That aside, he still just goes with the flow. The staff is systematically going through every Trump policy and are using executive orders to reverse them.
