“Americans' views have dimmed on the way President Joe Biden is handling his job as president.” So begins the report from Quinnipiac University, on Biden's job approval rating.
And it just keeps getting “better” — this week, with Secretary of State Antony Blinken testifying in both chambers of Congress about Biden's Afghanistan debacle, only opening his mouth to change feet.

A new national poll from Quinnipiac has the beleaguered president's job approval rating underwater, with 42 percent approving, of Biden's overall job performance, compared to 50 percent who disapprove.
And then the poll results on Afghanistan. They suck, Joe. Bigly. But we'll get there in a minute.

The results from the survey, conducted September 10-13, mark a significant shift since a survey carried out from July 27-Aug. 2, which found that 46 percent of voters approved of Biden's handling of his job, while 43 percent disapproved, as reported by The Blaze.
And foreign policy?
Just 34 percent approve of the president's handling of foreign policy — no doubt brainwashed liberals who would support anything this hapless guy might do — versus 59 percent who disapprove, a sizable swing from the 42 percent approval and 44 percent disapproval ratings Biden had on the issue in the earlier poll.
Then there's Biden's Afghanistan catastrophe.
According to the new Quinnipiac poll, a “yuuge” majority of 65 percent of participants disapproved of Biden's hapless, precipitous withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan, with only 31 percent approving of how he handled it — no doubt brainless liberals who support everything this hapless guy does.
Moreover, 62 percent of participants believe U.S. troops will return to Afghanistan to combat terrorism, vs. just 28 percent who say they don't think it will happen.

Incidentally, even Biden's handling of the economy is underwater, with 42 percent of participants agreeing with the job he's doing, while 52 percent oppose it.
Kellyanne Conway gleefully summed up the poll results in a tweet.
Devastating #poll numbers for Biden from Quinnipiac:

59% disapprove handling of foreign policy
52% disapprove handling of economy
49% disapprove handling of COVID
6 in 10 say US troops will be back in Afghanistan

The bottom line on Biden is the bottom line. Quinnipiac University's polling analyst went bottom-line on the survey's results, as transcribed by The Post:
If there ever was a honeymoon for President Biden, it is clearly over. This is, with few exceptions, a poll full of troubling negatives … from overall job approval, to foreign policy, to the economy.
Who knew? Given the fantastic job Joe's doing, and stuff. I mean, that's what the “journalists” of CNN and MSNBC tell us on a daily basis.
Meanwhile, in Afghanistan:
