President Biden speaks about the economy at the White House Monday. The Biden administration is arguing that higher-than-expected inflation is temporary.
President Biden continues to get good marks for his handling of the most pressing issue of the day — the coronavirus pandemic. He also remains on average above 50% for his handling of the economy, which is closely tied to COVID-19.

For a couple of months, it's been clear that Americans have less confidence in the president's handling of immigration, for example. There has been a surge of migrants, including unaccompanied minors, at the southern U.S. border, and the Biden administration has struggled to respond.
