A new poll reveals an overwhelming majority of Americans feel ashamed by Biden’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan. A new poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports reveals 70% say the withdrawal was a “national humiliation.”
The Washington Examiner reports:
And the feeling is not only one of shame and anger but bipartisanship. The survey outfit said that 56% of Democrats also agree that it was something to be ashamed of.
Part of the concerns voters apparently have about the quick evacuation after the Taliban took Kabul is fear that Americans will be taken hostage and used as pawns in a diplomatic tussle.
Rasmussen asked likely voters about that and even more, 73%, said that they feel it is likely Americans will be taken hostage. On that question, more Democrats had concerns, with 63% believing it likely Americans will be taken as hostages by the Taliban.
The questions were pulled out of the national headlines, like many of the Rasmussen polls. In the analysis, the pollster referenced a House hearing with Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
The Biden administration has faced fierce criticism over the withdrawal from Republicans and Americans.
