Joe Biden's polling malaise continues

When President Joe Biden's poll numbers initially began to slip in late August, Democrats insisted to anyone who would listen that this would be a temporary blip. Yes, they granted, the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan had been a political disaster -- making it look as though the President had created more chaos and danger in the region.
And, yes, the Delta variant had caused a surge in Covid-19 cases that had people questioning whether the Biden administration was as on top of this pandemic as it should be. But those were temporary problems, they said. No longer risking American lives in Afghanistan would soon be seen as a good thing -- and there was no way Afghanistan was going to remain top of mind for voters.
