Biden Gets Bad News After Afghanistan Train Wreck, New Poll Shows Majority of Americans Disapprove of How He’s Handled Situation

The Biden administration has put its incompetence on full display for the world to see.

Now Americans are letting Joe know how they feel.

According to a new poll, a majority of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of U.S. military operations in Afghanistan.

The survey found that 69 percent of polled Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of the U.S.’s military presence in Afghanistan.

Only 23 percent approve of Biden’s handling. The survey was conducted by The Trafalgar Group and Convention of States Action.

This poll comes as a 98-page report from the Inspector General reveals alarming information about the Biden administration and events leading up to the catastrophe unfolding in Afghanistan.

The Biden administration’s failure to understand the movement of the Taliban and provide effective preparation with the Afghan government has had horrifying consequences.

U.S. troops have been under fire, at least twice, while at Kabul’s Karzai International Airport, the NY Post reports.

“Thousands of Afghans have been filmed desperately chasing after and clinging to a US Air Force plane as it taxied down the runway — with multiple people plunging to their deaths after the aircraft took off in the frantic attempt to flee the country after the Taliban takeover,” the report adds.

Trump has called on Biden to resign from office “in disgrace.”

“What Joe Biden has done with Afghanistan is legendary,” Trump said. “It will go down as one of the greatest defeats in American history!”

More about the recent poll via The Hill:

When broken down by party, 48 percent of Democrats disapprove of the president’s handling of the situation, while almost 40 percent of those polled gave him positive marks.

But the gap was much wider among Republicans: Nearly 89 percent said they disapprove of the job Biden is doing when it comes to Afghanistan, with only 7 percent saying they approve.

The Trafalgar Group was the only nonpartisan polling company to predict former President Trump would win Pennsylvania and Michigan in 2016, but since then has faced some criticism over its methodology.

FiveThirtyEight gives Trafalgar an A-minus rating, the same as polls conducted by CBS News/The New York Times.

The most recent poll was conducted Aug. 14-15 among 1,084 likely voters. The margin of error was plus or minus 2.98 percentage points.

The poll was conducted just as the Taliban was completing its takeover of the Afghan capital Kabul.

Taliban fighters stepped up their military offensive in recent weeks as the U.S. troop withdrawal neared its end. President Biden previously said the mission in Afghanistan would wrap up by the end of this month.

The Inspector General has released the Department of Defense’s quarterly Sentinel report on Operation Freedom.

It reveals four facts about the Biden administration’s intel prior to withdrawing U.S. forces:

1. The Biden administration knew that the Afghan forces were unlikely to succeed in slowing or stopping the Taliban’s advance.

2. The report shows that the Biden administration also knew the Taliban had its sights set on Kabul.

3. The Biden administration knew the Taliban was only engaged in political negotiations to seek legitimacy, but planned to increase its military offensive to take the country by force.

4. The report also warned that plans for Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport were likely insufficient due to a complicated agreement with Turkish forces.
