An increasing number of polls are showing Joe Biden’s popularity among the American people is plummeting amid rising inflation, continued supply shortages, and revelations surrounding the Afghanistan troop withdrawal, among many other consequences of his failed policies.
According to a new AP-NORC poll, just 50 percent of Americans approve of the job he is doing in the White House, while 49 percent disapprove.
This new low comes on the heels of a series of national crises. In August, Biden oversaw the failed withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, leaving many Afghan allies and American citizens stranded. In addition, 13 U.S. service members lost their lives during the turbulent Afghanistan withdrawal.
This week, Biden’s top military officials testified on what exactly happened. And what they revealed was not good for Joe Biden.
Additionally, illegal immigrants are crossing the U.S. border in record numbers. According to the Washington Examiner, the Biden-Harris administration took heat for allowing an influx of 15,000 migrants into Del Rio, Texas in September. Most of those migrants were Haitian nationals.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Biden’s approval rating in Texas has dropped to just 32 percent.
The U.S. border continues to remain unsecured, with the United States Border Patrol reporting over 200,000 encounters with illegal immigrants in July alone.
Joe Biden is also urging Congress to pass a nearly $3 trillion-dollar infrastructure bill to boost job growth and revitalize the American economy, but a survey by CNBC suggests that Americans seem to generally oppose infrastructure spending.
The reported chaos at the border, along with the failed withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan, appear to be major contributing factors to Biden’s sinking national approval ratings.
