The damning poll found 20 percent of Joe Biden voters now regret their decision with 4 percent saying they are not sure and 76 percent saying they still have confidence in the president. The poll also found 29 percent of Republicans who voted for Mr Biden regretting it with 20 percent of Democrats and 14 percent of Independents. The findings add to a series of brutal polls which has documented US voters turning on the president following the Afghanistan withdrawal.
The poll found men were far more likely to regret their vote when compared to women as 27 percent of males regretted backing Mr Biden compared to 13 percent of females.
Young people and minorities were also far more likely to regret their vote.
The survey found 33 percent of Hispanics regretted their vote with 25 percent of African Americans felt the same, as did 16 percent of white people.
The online poll asked 2,173 Biden voters their views on their vote and was taken between August 5-13 before the fall of Kabul.
However, more recent polls have been damning for the elderly president with nearly a third branding him a bad president in a YouGov poll.
Around a third (32 percent) judged Mr Biden as an “average” president whereas just 13 percent regarded him as a “good” president, and only one perfect pinned him a “great” president.

Meanwhile, 32 percent of respondents saw him as either a “poor” or “terrible” leader of the free world.
Of the 7,214 UK adults surveyed, 21 percent opted for “don’t know”.
A poll conducted by USA Today/Suffolk University, found his approval ratings have lowered to 41 percent as the crisis in Afghanistan has resulted in the President having a 55 percent disapproval rating.
Journalist Miranda Devine of The New York Post appeared on Sky News Australia to give her verdict on Mr Biden’s unpopularity.
Stating the US was currently experiencing “buyer’s remorse” she told the programme: “American people are going to deal with this because the other alternative is to get rid of him somehow, make him resign impeach him, etc.

“And that means that [Kamala Harris] comes into the seat and she’s even more unpopular than Joe Biden is, even though she’s in hiding at the moment.
“We have not seen hide nor hair of her for days… she’s not been by Biden’s side as she used to be she wants nothing to do with the Afghanistan problem because she wants to keep her reputation relatively intact in case she does have to take the top job.
“But it hasn’t helped her polls either so both of them are on the skids and she’s never been popular whereas Joe Biden’s managed to fool a lot of people for a long time.

“I think the fact that he’s been able to hide behind a very popular president in Barack Obama and also in the atmosphere of the Senate and had this cheerleading section of the media.
“I don’t know whether there’s a lot of Irish journalists, I don’t know what it is.
“Maybe it’s his ice cream eating powers but for some reason he has certain people in the media who are still there [backing] him, it’s crazy.”
