According to the latest polls of different agencies, the approval of President Biden among the Americans has plunged.
President Biden’s average approval rating has dropped below 50% for the first time since taking office, according to trackers from FiveThirtyEight and RealClearPolitics.
“Biden received a 44 percent disapproval rating in the 538 polls. Biden’s greatest average approval rating during his administration, according to the RDCP survey, was 55.8%; he has since declined almost five points.” Politico reported.
Biden’s favor rating has slipped seven percentage points to 46 percent, according to a new Reuters survey released on Monday, putting him at the lowest point in his presidency.
According to Reuters:
“A separate Ipsos snap poll, also conducted on Monday, found that fewer than half of Americans liked the way Biden has steered the U.S. military and diplomatic effort in Afghanistan this year. The president, who just last month praised Afghan forces for being ‘as well-equipped as any in the world,’ was rated worse than the other three presidents who presided over the United States’ longest war,” noting that in the Ipsos poll, 44% of respondents said Biden has done a “good job” in Afghanistan. “In comparison, 51% praised the way former presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama handled the war.”
On Tuesday, Rasmussen reported that the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll found 45% of likely U.S. voters approved of Biden’s job performance, while 54% disapproved.
And The Daily Wire reported on Wednesday, in the latest developments in Afghanistan, “Taliban terrorists reportedly opened fire on a crowd in Afghanistan on Wednesday because the protesters insisted on waving the flag of Afghanistan.”
“Afghans demonstrate in Jalalabad in support of keeping Afghan flag (instead of white Taliban flag). Local media report Taliban fires on them, killing 2 and injured others,” NBC News journalist Richard Engel tweeted.
Meanwhile, it was reported on Tuesday that Biden’s administration informed American citizens trapped in Afghanistan that the administration could not guarantee their safety if they traveled to the airport in Kabul. The Biden administration sent the following message to Americans trapped in Afghanistan:
To American Citizens: Thank you for registering your request to be evacuated from Afghanistan. The U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan has confirmed that an undefined number of U.S. government provided flights will begin soon. Please make your way to Hamid Karzai International Airport at this time. Please be advised that the United States government cannot guarantee your security as you make this trip.
“The US message to Americans in Afghanistan right now is to shelter in place until they get communications from the US embassy which tell them when they should come to the airport and where exactly to go,” A spokesperson for the Biden administration’s State Department told CNN.
