Half of residents anticipate the Biden presidency will have a positive impact on the island

MEDIA RELEASE: January 7, 2021

Half of residents anticipate the Biden presidency will have a positive impact on the Island.

BERMUDA: With the inauguration of Joe Biden as President of the United States of America quickly approaching on January 20th, many countries around the world are speculating the impact this change in office will have on them. As part of our recent Bermuda Omnibus research, Bermudians were asked the impact they expect the Biden administration will have on the Island.

One-half expect that the new presidency will have a net positive impact on the Island, while a slightly fewer do not anticipate much change. It is positive to note that only one in ten expect a negative impact from the new administration.

Across demographics, expectations are highly consistent though residents aged 55 and older are most likely to expect a positive impact on Bermuda.
