Amid the withdrawal of U.S. forces and personnel from Afghanistan over the past couple of weeks, there’s been a downhill slide of Biden’s approval ratings.
Reportedly Biden stands at 43% approval and 51% disapproval among Americans in a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist national survey that was released on Thursday. Biden’s approval rating is down from July.
His numbers started sliding last month, as the crisis in Afghanistan dominated media coverage. The new survey is the latest to indicate that the rocky exit from Afghanistan, that ended a two-decade U.S. military presence in the war-torn Central Asian country, is taking a toll on Biden’s political standing.
The president now stands at 45%-49% approval/disapproval in an average of the last surveys compiled by RealClearPolitics, and at 46%-48% in a compilation by the polling and analysis website FiveThirtyEight.
Biden has been facing a barrage of bipartisan criticism for some three weeks for his handling of the evacuation efforts in Afghanistan (Conservative Modern).
