A poll on Monday revealed that nearly 70% of respondents disapprove of the disaster that President Biden has allowed to develop in Afghanistan, with his withdrawal of American troops and advisers and the Taliban’s resulting takeover of the nation – within just a matter of days.

The Convention of States Action in partnership with the Trafalgar Group release the results of its interviews with 1,000 likely 2022 election voters targeted by the poll.

“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,” said Mark Meckler, of the Convention action team. “After spending more than $1 trillion 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.”

The results showed 69.3% of American voters “disapprove of how President Biden is handling U.S. military operations in Afghanistan.”

That includes 59.5% who “strongly disapprove” and 9.8% say they “disapprove.” Only 23.1% approved.

Significantly, 48.2% of Democrats disapprove and a whopping 74.8% of independent voters agree with that plurality.

It was not a surprise that 88.8% of Republican voters disapprove of how President Biden is handling U.S. military operations in Afghanistan, including 80% who strongly disapprove.

The polling was done August 14-15 among 1,084 respondents who are likely general election voters. The margin of error was 2.98%.
