As promised from your numbers guy. I’m doing a weekly comparison of Biden’s approval ratings, pre-Afghanistan withdrawal vs. post Afghanistan withdrawal. What I’m looking for is a trend developing. 1 Aug numbers, pre-Afghanistan, 31 Aug numbers, end of Afghanistan withdrawal, 14 Sep numbers post Afghanistan.

Biden’s overall job approval/disapproval numbers:
1 Aug 51.3% approval, 45.9% disapproval/31 Aug 46.3% approval, 48.6% disapproval/14 Sep 45.2% approval, 49.7% disapproval.

Generic congressional vote
1 Aug Democrats 48% Republican 41% D plus 7/31 Aug Democrats 46% Republicans 44% D plus 2/14 Sep Democrats 42% Republicans 40% D plus 2.

Direction of the Country, right track/wrong track

1 Aug right track 40%, wrong track 53%/31 Aug right track 30%, wrong track 61%/14 Sep right track 30%/wrong track 61%.

Immigration 1 Aug 42% approve, 54% disapprove/31 Aug 34% approve, 57% disapprove/14 Sep 36% approve, 56% disapprove.

COVID 1 Aug 62% approve, 38% disapprove/31 Aug 53% approve, 43% disapprove/14 Sep 52% approve, 43% disapprove.

Economy 1 Aug 55% approve, 45% disapprove/31 Aug 46% approve, 49% disapprove/14 Sep 45% approve, 49% disapprove.

Two weeks with basically no change after the withdrawal from Afghanistan. The only thing that stands out for me is those who answered the question, if the midterm election were held today, who would you vote for? The Democratic congressional candidate or the Republican congressional candidate? On both 1 Aug and again on 31 Aug there were only 10% of the electorate in the undecided column. As of 14 Sep, that has shot up to 18%. A lot more undecided and not sure than before.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
