President Biden’s job approval ratings continue to slip in several polls as he grapples with his bungled Afghanistan withdrawal and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Rasmussen’s newest daily tracking poll released Monday found that Biden’s approval rating has plunged to zero, with 43% approving and 56% disapproving of the vice president. Just a few weeks ago, his approval rating dropped to a historic low of 40%. According to the most recent poll conducted by FiveThirtyEight, Biden’s popularity rating is in the negatives, with 52% disapproving and 46% approving of his work as vice president.
According to the October IBD/TIPP Poll, 44% of Americans approve of President Biden’s job performance, unchanged from September. Moreover, disapproval of Biden’s job performance has decreased to 40% from 43% last month. Biden received a 52-34 percent approval rating in an early August IBD/TIPP poll.
Additionally, the poll found that Biden’s support among independent voters has been dwindling for some time. Biden scores 45 percent disapproval from such voters, while only 32% approve of his performance. According to investors, this marks a “modest improvement over September’s 50% disapproval-33% approval rating.” Likewise, the survey found that less than a third of Americans believe Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan was “good or great,” with the remaining 48% believing it was “poor” or “unacceptable.”
On the other hand, according to Rep. Markwayne Mullin, whose team is on the ground in Afghanistan rescuing stranded Americans, Biden’s bungled withdrawal resulted in the deaths of two additional Americans. He added that any of them may have escaped, though perhaps not in the manner that he had anticipated. It was a feasible scenario. They might have been able to remove them if they had tried harder. Perhaps not in the way that people think. He continued by stating that yet the State Department has refused to assist them as well as the government is not telling the truth about what is happening in this situation. However, the RealClearPolitics average of polls showed Biden’s approval at 45.1 percent, with 47.9 percent disapproving.
