The unexpected deaths of 13 service members in Afghanistan two weeks ago are being blamed on Joe Biden, according to a new poll.
It’s easy to understand why. Biden was the reason the withdrawal was so rushed and chaotic.
He owns this.
Poll: Majority Blame Biden for Death of 13 Service Members
A majority of adults, at 53 percent, say that President Joe Biden’s handling of the withdrawal from Afghanistan is to blame for the death of 13 U.S. service members as a result of a terrorist attack at the Kabul airport on August 26. This is according to a Washington Post-ABC News conducted August 29-September 1 and released on Friday.
“Thirteen members of the U.S. military and at least 170 Afghans were killed near the Kabul airport in a suicide bombing by the Islamic State. How much, if at all, do you blame this attack on Biden’s handling of the withdrawal from Afghanistan – a great deal, a good amount, not much, or not at all?”
Not only did a majority say “More blame,” a plurality, at 38 percent, said a “Great deal.”
The strongest majority of all is the 60 percent who disapprove of the way Biden is handling “the situation in Afghanistan.”
And, the talking point from the White House and the DNC is turned on its head by the poll results. The White House depends on the talking point that Americans support withdrawal from Afghanistan. This is true, as 77 percent support the decision–with support coming from all across the political spectrum–but it’s hardly the main takeaway.
Biden is in serious trouble.
“I just worry about his ability to achieve his agenda."

It has been only eight months and Biden is in free fall.
What will his numbers look like in another six months?
