Joe Biden continues to be a popular president riding on the back of 51% of the votes in the 2020 election and excellent handling of the COVID pandemic. He continues to enjoy support from all the demographic groups that voted for him in 2020. However, with inflation picking up due increased gas prices and job creation being volatile, the economy continues to concern many Americans.

Immigration too remains a major problem area for President Biden. On student loans, the administration has made tardy progress. Lastly, the Republicans and conservative media have continued to point out to slips by President Biden questioning his mental faculties.

Overall, the President is at a comfortable place but could slip because of the above mentioned issues.
