The political fallout from Joe Biden’s failed withdrawal from Afghanistan continues to spread.
There appears to be no end in sight.
And Joe Biden just got confronted with the one poll result that every Democrat feared would come.
While the American people support ending the war, poll after poll shows Americans strongly disapprove of the manner in which Joe Biden planned and executed his withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Democrats hoped Americans would look past the failure of execution in ending the war and just be happy the nation’s longest war was over.
That is not how events are playing out.
And a new Rasmussen poll showed 52 percent of Americans believe Joe Biden should resign over how he mismanaged bringing the war in Afghanistan to a close.
The survey asked respondents, “Should President Joe Biden resign because of the way the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan was handled?”
Overall, a majority, or 52 percent, said “yes,” Biden should resign, while 39 percent said he should not. Opinions over Biden resigning are sharply divided along party lines, as three-quarters of Republicans say he should — a sentiment held by nearly one-third of Democrats, 32 percent, and a plurality of independents, 48 percent.
Sixty percent of Democrats, however, say Biden should not resign.
Democrats banked on a booming economy, an end to the coronavirus pandemic and Joe Biden bringing home U.S. troops from Afghanistan to serve as their three main selling points to the American people that they deserve to be in power.
Now, thanks to Joe Biden’s bungling it looks like Democrats will have to go back to the drawing board on all three.
But that isn’t even the worst of the Democrats’ problems.
The American people are turning on Joe Biden in a way they never did against his predecessors.
