National Survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters

Conducted September 29 and 30, 2021
By Rasmussen Reports


1* In a congressional hearing this week, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, testified that his recommendation was to keep 2,500 U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Would that have been better than a complete U.S. troop withdrawal?



2* In an interview last month, President Joe Biden denied that his advisers recommended keeping 2,500 troops in Afghanistan, which is contradicted by General Milley’s testimony. Who do you believe is telling the truth, President Biden or General Milley?


3* Do you agree or disagree with this statement: “Biden can’t avoid the consequences of his actions [in Afghanistan]. He must resign”?
