Biden’s popularity is declining

Obama’s visit to the White House comes at a time when Biden’s popularity has waned since the act’s passage, with Obama serving as vice president. Biden’s decline in popularity comes ahead of a midterm election that will determine the size of the US House and Senate. Currently, both houses are controlled by the Democratic Party by a very small margin.
