Poll: Majority of Americans Not Confident In Biden’s ‘Mental Fitness’

President Joe Biden took a lot of criticism from Republicans on the campaign trail about his age and mental fitness.

Now, a new poll shows Americans are not confident in Biden’s mental fitness. Issues & Insights released a poll this week showing that just 42% of Americans say the leader of the U.S. is “mentally sharp.”

“The poll tried to gauge the public’s perceptions of Biden on several measures, including mental abilities, by asking a random sampling of adults to ‘indicate your level of agreement or disagreement with the following descriptions of President Joe Biden,'” the group said.

“Among the choices given were ‘mentally sharp,’ ‘energetic,’ and ‘a good communicator.’ The results are not good for Biden. Just 42% of those polled say they think the president is ‘mentally sharp,’ and 42% say he’s ‘energetic.’ (Half those polled say he isn’t mentally sharp or energetic.) Fewer than half surveyed (47%) say Biden is a ‘good communicator.'”

Several gaffes and slip-ups have egged on Biden’s reputation. Most recently, Biden appeared to fall asleep during the G20 Summit, not his first time to doze off on the world stage.

“Hilarious that everyone knows Joe Biden has some serious mental decline and the entire media establishment is still keeping up the act that no, actually, he’s in prime mental condition,” said Kyle Kashuv.

After this latest snoozing incident, Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., advocated for his removal.

“He is at such a clear point of mental decline,” he told Newsmax. “The 25th Amendment needs to be enacted, he can not serve in office any longer.”

The questions come as Democrats suffer overall in the polls and on the heels of major losses in Tuesday’s election. Inflation, jobs and the economy have all become major issues, and voters trust Republicans more on those issues.

Gallup released poll data in October showing Americans prefer Republicans 54% to Democrats’ 39% on who is better for handling terrorism and security while preferring Republicans 50% to 41% for “ensuring prosperity.”

“The 15-percentage-point GOP advantage on security matters is its largest since 2015, while its nine-point edge on prosperity is its largest since 2014,” Gallup said. “Last year, the GOP had a narrow advantage on international matters while the parties were essentially tied on economic matters. More of this change has come from declines in Americans perceiving the Democratic Party as better on these issues than from increases for the Republican Party. Meanwhile, the public is narrowly divided (41% Republican Party, 38% Democratic Party) as to which party can better handle whichever issue it deems the most important facing the country. Americans most commonly name the coronavirus pandemic or the government itself as the most important problem.”
