1. For Now, 73 Percent Of Americans Support Allowing Afghan Refugees Resettle in U.S. NPR 13:25

President Joe Biden’s approval rating has dropped to a new low, 43 percent, according to a new poll from NPR, PBS NewsHour, and Marist College. Americans are split about what should have happened in Afghanistan, but a large majority label the U.S. role in the country a “failure.”

The poll found that a historically large majority of Americans approve of resettling Afghan refugees in the United States, but that number could decline as the political fight heats up.

This episode: White House correspondent Asma Khalid, White House correspondent Scott Detrow, and senior political editor and correspondent Ron Elving.
