According to the AP/ NORC poll, perception of Biden’s handling of the national economy has grown more negative as recent bank failures, such as the Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank, have added to inflation struggles.

The White House has attempted to dispel concerns with the assurance of economic stability, but just 31% of Americans approve of his economic policies.

In other news, Biden met with the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, and traveled to Ottawa to discuss bilateral ties.
