income around $2,000/month does this make it difficult to be approved for a credit card?

Income is not the deciding factor in letting someone have a credit card.  You could have $10,000/mo but still be denied if you do not already have some sort of credit history.  Please read the articles on this site so you can understand how credit works.  It is valuable information.

Credit history and debt/income ratio are more important than income. If you have a great credit score you could still be denied if you have too many cards. The more cards you have, the more potential minimum monthly payments you have to meet. If your income doesn't support making monthly payments to many different creditors, you will be denied. 
I know American Express uses income as a deciding factor, but I'm not so sure about others.
