The chaotic end to America’s 20-year war in Afghanistan is taking a steep toll on President Joe Biden’s approval rating, with a majority giving him a thumbs-down on his job performance, a new poll showed Tuesday.
In the USA Today/Suffolk University Poll, Biden’s overall job approval rating stands at 41% who approve versus 55% who disapprove.
About half approved of his handling of the pandemic, 39% of his handling of the economy, and 26% of his handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal, the poll showed.
