Biden Polls Well 100 Days In On All But Immigration
On River to River, host Ben Kieffer talks with political analysts Rene Rocha of the University of Iowa and Jonathan Hassid of Iowa State University to preview President Biden's speech to a joint session of Congress Wednesday night.
They examine polling on Biden's performance that shows most Americans approve of the administration's handling of the pandemic and other issues — with one notable exception. Most disapprove of Biden's handling of immigration and the flow of migrants to the U.S.-Mexico border. Kieffer, Rocha and Hassid discuss how the number of migrants at the border today compares with migration before the pandemic.
