New Reuters poll has Biden approval at lowest level this year after Taliban takeover

After the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, President Joe Biden’s approval rating has fallen to the lowest level this year in a new Reuters/IPSOS poll.

Per Reuters:

The national opinion poll, conducted on Monday, found that 46% of American adults approved of Biden’s performance in office, the lowest recorded in weekly polls that started when Biden took office in January.

It is also down from the 53% who felt the same way in a similar Reuters/Ipsos poll that ran on Friday.

Biden’s popularity dropped as the Taliban entered the capital, Kabul, wiping away two decades of U.S. military presence that cost nearly 1 trillion taxpayer dollars and thousands of American lives.

Meanwhile, a new Trafalgar poll found the majority of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of the U.S. military in Afghanistan.

The poll found 69% Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of the U.S.’s military presence in Afghanistan that resulted in the Taliban taking over. Only 23% approved.
