Biden’s approval rating hits new low after the Afghanistan withdrawal

Biden’s approval rating hits new low after the Afghanistan withdrawal

Washington, Sep 3 (Prensa Latina) Amid the chaos of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, President Joe Biden´s approval rating slid to just 43% in the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll.

That is down 6 percentage points from a survey conducted in July and is the lowest mark for Biden in the poll since taking office. The decline is principally due to independents — just 36% of them approve of the job he’s doing, a 10-point drop.

Biden´s disapproval has plummeted in multiple polls since the Taliban seized power in Afghanistan in mid-August, rushing US troops to leave from Afghanistan.

The Afghanistan war – the longest in US history – came to an end this week as Pentagon announced the total withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.

The end of the war, contrary to what Joe Biden expected, was a failure now reflected in approval studies, particularly after the bombings near the Kabul international airport, leaving 13 US soldiers dead.

In this regard, 61% disapprove of Biden´s handling of the withdrawal, including 71% of independents. A majority also disapproves of Biden´s handling of foreign policy in general.

However, President Biden´s image is eroded by other domestic issues, such as economy, increased Covid-19 cases and migration crisis at Mexico border.
