According to a Quinnipiac poll released on Wednesday, sixty-two percent of Americans believe the U.S. military will be forced to go back to Afghanistan to fight terrorism.
"The pullout is over, but boots will be back on the ground eventually,' predict voters, who clearly see a looming terrorist threat churning in the cauldron that is Afghanistan," said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy.
The poll which was conducted Sep. 10-13 also reported that 54 percent of Americans say they approve of Biden's decision to withdraw service members from Afghanistan, compared with 41 percent who disapprove.
Biden has been harshly criticized for the withdrawal, which saw the swift takeover of Kabul by the Taliban and a suicide bombing that claimed the lives of 13 U.S. service members.
Sixty-nine percent of Americans polled said military withdrawal from Afghanistan was the right move while 24 percent say it wasn't. Sixty-five percent scored the way Biden handled the withdrawal negatively. Thirty-one percent, meanwhile, scored it positively.
The poll also revealed that 50% disapprove of the way Biden is handling his job as president, with 42% approving. Also, 48% approve of Biden's handling of the COVID-19 response, but the majority still lies with the 49% who disapprove.
Biden received negative scores on his handling of foreign policy (59-34 percent), the economy (42-52 percent) and climate change (45-42 percent)
"If there ever was a honeymoon for President Biden, it is clearly over. This is, with few exceptions, a poll full of troubling negatives...from overall job approval to foreign policy, to the economy," said Malloy.
