Democratic lawmakers are reportedly concerned about the party’s future as Biden’s approval continues to plummet amidst the Afghanistan crisis.
The New York Times reports that as Biden faces a political crisis in the middle east, the credibility of his party has come into question. Democrats fear that Biden’s mishandling of U.S troop withdraw will cause them to lose power in Washington, according to The New York Times.
Amidst growing chaos in Afghanistan, lawmakers announced congressional investigations to the administration’s ‘mishandling’ of the withdrawal. In hopes to “reset the narrative,” Democratic lawmakers have called on Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan, the outlet further reported.
Since the takedown of Afghanistan by the Taliban earlier this month, Biden’s approval rating has fallen below 50 percent for the very first time, as per the Daily Wire.
A poll conducted by CBS News found that 74 percent of Americans believe Biden’s U.S troop withdrawal has “badly.” The struggle to maintain and control COVID-19 has further contributed to the downfall of Biden’s approval rating.
