[Ed. – Biden’s other polling numbers will soon follow suit.]
Support for the American military withdrawal from Afghanistan dropped 20 percentage points from April to August as the Taliban takeover of the country accelerated, according to a Morning Consult/POLITICO poll.
The poll, conducted from Aug. 13-16 among a sample of 1,999 registered voters, indicated that just 25 percent of American voters think the withdrawal from Afghanistan is going well. Just 49 percent of voters continued to support the withdrawal, down from 69 percent in April.
The results reflect the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan and a rapid Taliban takeover. Now, amid the U.S. withdrawal from the country, people are crowding the Kabul airport and trying to flee the country. The events in Afghanistan’s capital city have drawn sharp criticism from both sides of the aisle about President Joe Biden’s handling of the withdrawal to end 20 years of military involvement in the country.
