The new poll, commissioned by NBC News, was conducted August 14-17 on a sample of 1,000 US citizens. The results were revealed on Sunday.
According to the study, only 25 percent. Americans approve of Joe Biden’s actions on Afghanistan. 60 percent value them in cash.
Support for Joe Biden’s presidency has fallen by four percentage points since April, to 49%. The percentage of opponents is 48 percent. – That’s a nine percentage point increase.
“I haven’t seen that poll,” Joe Biden said when asked at a news conference about the said findings. He later defended his decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan.
“It will be difficult and painful to evacuate thousands of people from Kabul, whether it happens a month or a month before today,” he said.
“I think history will remember leaving Afghanistan as a logical, rational and correct decision,” Biden said.
Let us remind you that the Taliban, after the withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan, took control of almost the entire country in August, including the capital – Kabul. This led to great chaos and mass evictions. Biden has been criticized for the way the Afghanistan exit process was carried out.
Biden defended his position, saying: “No one can expect the 300,000 Afghan soldiers we have trained and armed to surrender.”
