Calls for Biden impeachment or resignation grow amid fall of Afghanistan, chaotic U.S. exit

As CNBC reported, in early May Biden's job approval was at 54% in the 538 polling average, and by Tuesday of this week it had fallen to 47%, the lowest it's been.

The polls make clear that it was not the decision to withdraw that changed public opinion, but rather how it was implemented. The issues ranged from Biden's assurances that the Taliban were unable to rapidly take control of the country, to the premature abandonment of Bagram Air Base, to bowing to the Taliban timeline for full U.S. withdrawal, and allowing the Taliban to man the checkpoints leading into the airport in Kabul. 

Former President Donald Trump called for Biden to "resign in disgrace" even before the suicide bombing attack at the Kabul airport on Thursday. 

Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.), a Senate colleague and friend of the former Delaware senator, said on Tuesday that Biden's impeachment is in order. “I think he should be impeached,” Graham said on Newsmax-TV. 

"I think Joe 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," he added.
