SHOCK POLL: Majority Of Voters Think Joe Biden Should Resign Including Large Percentage Of Democrats

President Joe Biden should step down and take responsibility for his administration’s botched withdrawal of American troops in Afghanistan which resulted in the deaths of 13 US servicemen according to a recent Rasmussen Reports.

The poll released Wednesday asked respondents: “Should President Joe Biden resign because of the way the US withdrawal from Afghanistan was handled?”

A resounding majority or 52% of those surveyed said “yes” to Biden resigning, compared to the 39% who answered that he should not. 

The survey noted that opinions over Biden’s resignation are “sharply divided along party lines.” Three-quarters of Republicans believe Biden should retire, while almost one-third of Democrats or 32%, and a plurality of independents, 48%, believe he should not.

Most Democrats or 60%, however, say Biden should not step down despite the Afghanistan fallout.

The survey also asked respondents to indicate whether they agree with the statement: “I think Joe Biden deserves to be  impeached because he’s abandoned thousands of Afghans who fought with us and  he’s going to abandon some American citizens because he capitulated to the Taliban to a 31 August deadline.”

To this question, 60% of Americans surveyed said they “somewhat agree” to the statement, and another 46% saying they “strongly” agree that the Democrat president should be impeached. 

Meanwhile, 37% said they “somewhat disagree” with the statement — 29% of them said they “strongly disagree” that President Biden should be impeached.

No confidence in Harris

Should Biden step down or be impeached, voters noted that they are not confident with the abilities of Vice President Kamala Harris to assume the presidency either.

The survey found 47% saying that Harris is “not at all qualified” to assume the presidency and 11% saying she is “not very qualified.” 

Only 38% of those surveyed indicated some confidence in Harris’ ability to assume the duties of being president.

The survey was taken on August 30-31, among 1,000 likely US voters, and it has a margin of error of +/- 3 percent.

Biden’s dismal approval ratings come after his administration’s catastrophic exit from Afghanistan. The already chaotic pullout of troops took a turn for the worse after Biden decided to stick to the Taliban-approved August 31 deadline to move out American troops from Afghanistan — when a deadly terror attack struck Kabul airport resulting in the deaths of 13 US soldiers and at least 90 Afghans. 

In an address to the nation, President Biden acknowledged that his administration left behind some Americans in the now Taliban -controlled country.

“Now we believe that about 100 to 200 Americans remain in Afghanistan with some intention to leave. Most of those that remain are dual citizens, longtime residents who had earlier decided to stay because of their family roots in Afghanistan,” Biden said on Tuesday.

“The bottom line: 90% of Americans in Afghanistan who wanted to leave were able to leave. And for those remaining Americans, there is no deadline. We remain committed to get them out if they want to come out,” Biden added.

The poll comes after Rasmussen Reports’ Daily Presidential Tracking Poll hit a new low on Wednesday, with Biden’s approval rating plummeting to 42%.
