The Trafalgar Group/Convention of States Action survey, taken among 1,084 likely general election voters, shows that the disapproval transcends parties, age range, gender and ethnicity. Of the whole data set, 69.3 per cent of respondents either strongly disapproved or disapproved of Biden’s decision to fully withdraw from Afghanistan and the events that unfolded in the aftermath. On the other hand, only 23.1 per cent of likely general election voters approve of the president’s actions related to the Middle Eastern nation.
The Taliban was easily able to take over control of Afghanistan in a little over one week – and on Sunday took Kabul as Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled the country. Among Democratic voters, 48.2 per cent disapprove of Biden’s handling of military operations in Afghanistan, according to the survey, which was conducted August 14-15 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.98 percentage points.
Republicans are much more against the president’s actions in Afghanistan with 88.8 per cent disapproval and only 7.1 per cent approval. Eight in 10 GOP voters say they are against Biden’s military action in Afghanistan. Biden addressed the nation in a press conference at the White House on Monday after he was accused of going on ‘vacation’ to Camp David as Afghan security forces and the government swiftly fell to the Taliban as they invaded Kabul on Sunday.
Biden’s withdrawal and handling of the events afterwards was slammed by politicians on both sides of the aisle and dubbed a ‘failure’. The president and his top military advisors have admitted that they did not expect Afghanistan to fall as quickly as it did to the Islamic militant group.
