An ABC News/Washington Post poll released on Friday will drag President Joe Biden’s average approval rating — already at a nadir — down to a new low.

According to the survey, only 44 percent of American approve of the president’s job performance while 51 percent actively disapprove. Biden does even worse with independents — only 36 percent approve.

The nature of the president’s withdrawal from Afghanistan has no doubt contributed to his suddenly diminishing political stature. Seventy-seven percent of Americans approve of Biden’s decision to pull U.S. troops out of the country, yet 60 percent concur that his administration carried out the withdrawal poorly. That’s double the amount that approve.

Americans are split on the question of whether the withdrawal has rendered the U.S. less safe or made no difference for the country’s national security. Only eight percent believe the country is more safe.
