A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey finds 60 percent of likely U.S. voters think keeping 2,500 American troops in Afghanistan would have been better than a complete U.S. withdrawal.

That was also the testimony of Gen. Mark Milley, who the majority of voters said they believe and had the better plan.

Just 24 percent of likely voters disagreed and favor Biden’s total withdrawal.

When asked whether they believe Milley or Biden, 57 percent of voters said they think Milley is telling the truth. Just 21 percent said they think Biden is being honest.

Fifty-five percent of voters agree with Sen. Marsha Blackburn’s comment that Biden cannot avoid the consequences of his actions in Afghanistan and must resign.

Thirty-nine percent disagree with Blackburn’s quote.

Interestingly, even 40 percent of Democrats said they believe Milley’s recommendation would’ve been better than a total withdrawal. They side with 79 percent of Republicans and 64 percent of unaffiliated voters.

Eighty percent of Republicans, 58 percent of unaffiliated voters and 34 percent of Democrats believe Milley over Biden.

Just 39 percent of Democrats believe Biden is telling the truth.

As for the resignation demand, 57 percent of unaffiliated voters agree Biden should resign.
