President Biden will hold an oh-so-rare press conference on Wednesday afternoon. (Hopefully he doesn't accidentally create an international incident this time.) Given his ultra-low approval numbers at the one-year mark of his presidency, a lot of the questions will be of the "how did it go so wrong?" variety.

Politico has rounded up some of the likely queries ahead of time. One reporter wants to ask Biden about why so many Americans think the country is on the "wrong track." Another wants him to explain to Black voters why both voting rights and police reform efforts have so far failed. And there might be a question about how working families will fare now that child tax credit payments have dried up, with little near-term hope of their revival.
