A new poll shows President Joe Biden’s approval rating continues to fall after the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan and amid a continuing wave of COVID-19 cases.

In the Quinnipiac Poll conducted over the weekend and released Tuesday, Biden’s approval rating was 42 percent, with 50 percent disapproving of his overall job as president.

That’s a drop since early August, when 46 percent of Americans approved of Biden’s way of doing his job and 43 percent disapproved of it.

“If there was ever a honeymoon for President Biden, it’s clearly over,” Quinnipiac University analyst Tim Malloy said in a statement.

“This is, with few exceptions, a poll full of disturbing negatives…from general job approval, to foreign policy, to the economy,” Malloy said.
