(Austin, TX—Sept 9, 2021) Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters in 2016, 2018 and 2020—is releasing the results of a new national survey. Results were from surveys conducted September 3rd through September 5th of over 1,000 likely 2022 election voters.
“On the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the American people see that President Biden‘s handling of Afghanistan has undone most of the progress made over two hard-fought decades in the war on terror,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “But the deeper issue this reveals is the utter lack of confidence the public now has in the Biden Administration’s ability to lead the country. No matter what the issue, the utter incompetence of Afghanistan is dragging his numbers down across the board.”
