Americans’ faith in President Biden has hit an all-time low. The majority of the country holds a negative view of the job President Biden is doing but what’s far more frightening is how many think he will leave Americans behind in Afghanistan. A new poll from Rasmussen Reports should be a major wake-up call to Biden but it seems that he’s asleep at the wheel.

The Washington Examiner reports:
Not only do voters believe that Biden isn’t doing enough to help stranded citizens, but a massive 76% believes some will be left behind to be captured by the terror group that now controls Afghanistan in the wake of the United States’s withdrawal.
The polling outfit said that 59% of likely voters “believe the Biden administration is not doing enough to evacuate Americans from Afghanistan.” Just 28% of respondents believe the administration is doing enough.
But much worse, Rasmussen said that “more than three-quarters of voters think it’s likely Americans in Afghanistan will become hostages.” The numbers: 76% said it is at least somewhat likely that Americans who remain in Afghanistan will be taken hostage by the Taliban, including 45% who said it is very likely. Just 14% of respondents don’t.
In a separate tracking survey, Rasmussen’s approval rating for Biden was way underwater, with just 44% approving of his job as president and 55% disapproving.
President Biden seems to be in free fall as he struggles to get control of the situation in Afghanistan. Tuesday afternoon he announced he will be sticking with his firm Aug. 31 deadline to withdraw all remaining Americans.
