(POLL) Should Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin resign?

After it was revealed that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin was secretly treated at a hospital, some voters say he should resign.

That’s according to Rasmussen Reports.

The survey finds that 34% of likely voters say Austin should resign as Secretary of Defense because of his health problems. Forty-six percent (46%) disagree, and 20% are not sure.

Austin was released Monday from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, two weeks after experiencing complications from surgery to treat prostate cancer. 

The survey did not ask voters whether Austin should resign for initially having kept his illness and hospitalization secret from the public and from others in the Biden administration, allegedly failing to arrange for the proper transfer of authority as necessary.

Among other missteps, Austin presided over the botched US withdrawal from Afghanistan in which numerous US soldiers and dozens of Afghans were killed by Islamic extremist terrorists.

Thirty-nine percent (39%) of voters say they have a favorable impression of Austin, including 17% with a “very favorable” opinion of the Defense Secretary.

Forty-four percent (44%) say they view him unfavorably, including 28% with a “very unfavorable” view of Austin.

Seventeen percent (17%) say they have no opinion.
