NBC POLL: Biden approval sinks to lowest point in his presidency amid Afghanistan debacle

President Biden’s approval rating has sunk to the lowest in his presidency amid a widely criticized Afghanistan U.S. military withdrawal that was quickly followed by the Taliban takeover of the country.

Per USAToday:

President Joe Biden’s approval rating has fallen to the lowest point in his young presidency, sliding below 50% for the first time a new NBC poll found, as COVID-19 cases rise and he battles fallout from a chaotic military withdrawal from Afghanistan.

The poll, conducted from Aug. 14-17 and released Sunday, found 49% approve of Biden’s job performance while 48% disapprove. Other polls this week also found Biden’s approval rating slipping: CBS (50%), Ipsos (46%) and YouGov (44%).

An NBC poll in April found 53% of Americans approved of Biden’s job performance.
