A brand new poll that has been recently conducted has revealed that the United States has “turned sharply” against President Joe Biden over his handling of the troop withdrawal from Afghanistan as fears that his blunders will result in hundreds of Americans getting left behind continue to grow.
The president’s decision to pull troops, while initially supported by many individuals, is now being seen as a huge mistake by a majority of those who were surveyed by Rasmussen Reports.
“A majority of all voters have turned sharply against President Joe Biden on his handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal, and most believe that hundreds of Americans will be left behind after the August 31 deadline,” Rasmussen Reports stated.
Data shared by Rasmussen show just how far Biden has fallen in the eyes of likely voters since suicide blasts killed 13 American service personnel last week.
- 66% rate Biden’s handling of the crisis fair to poor, with 52% calling it “poor.”
- By a wide 50%-34% margin, likely voters called tomorrow’s withdrawal “a bad decision.”
- 51% said the policy will leave at least 100 and maybe over 500 Americans behind after troops withdraw.
Polling has slowly caught up to the concerns over the president’s handling of the crisis. Even his friends in the Senate, including South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, have suggested he be impeached over the disaster.
It seems that Biden is now determined to meet the deadline set down by the Taliban, a known terrorist organization, which is to have troops pulled by midnight tomorrow night.
However, the president has indicated some troops will be staying put to help track down remaining Americans in the country.
