Nearly 70 percent of Americans in a new poll expressed disapproval of President Joe Biden’s actions that have led to the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan.
“There is absolutely no question that the American people are not buying the lies on Afghanistan. This is Saigon, and it’s far worse. Our nation has watched the same group of leaders in Washington, D.C., flounder and blunder on foreign policy, on COVID-19, on the border, and on the economy,” Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action, said in a news release.

“After spending more than $1 trillion dollars and enduring wounded and dead soldiers, we are confronted with a basecamp for terror, a foreign policy nightmare, and are now less safe here at home. Time for new leadership,” it added.
Key insights from the survey included 69.3 percent of American voters disapprove of how President Biden is handling U.S. military operations in Afghanistan—59.5 percent say they strongly disapprove, while 9.8% say they disapprove.
The poll also noted 23.1 percent of American voters approve of how President Biden is handling U.S. military operations in Afghanistan—10.7 percent strongly approve, while 12.4 percent approve.
Results were from surveys conducted August 14th through August 15th of over 1,000 likely 2022 election voters, according to the news release.
The poll revealed the deep frustration many Americans have with Biden’s policies that have led to the Taliban’s return to power in Afghanistan. Biden has yet to respond in a way that has addressed the concerns expressed by nearly 70 percent of Americans.
