Biden’s approval rating is also dropping just like his predecessor Donald Trump’s approval-disapproval rating had nosedived to at this stage in his presidency.

The survey found 60 percent of voters backed a statement last week’s statement by Republican Senator. Lindsey Graham: “I think Biden deserves to be impeached because he’s abandoned thousands of Afghans who fought with us and he’s going to abandon some American citizens because he capitulated to the Taliban to a 31 August deadline.”

Thirty-eight percent of respondents said Biden’s vice-president was “qualified” to be president, with 58 percent believing she is not.
