According to Breitbart News, two new polls indicate that a majority of Americans have serious questions about President Joe Biden’s mental fitness.
One of the polls comes from McLaughlin & Associates. Between April 22 and 26, the pollster surveyed 1,000 individuals. One of the questions that the pollster asked was “Do you think Joe Biden should take a cognitive health test and release it publicly?”
An overwhelming majority — 60% — said that Biden should. Only 29% said that Biden should not, while 11% either refused to answer the question or said that they simply didn’t know.
The pollster has asked this question a number of times in recent months, and each time the result has been this two-to-one ratio.
“I have doubts”
The other poll comes from Harvard Caps/Harris. The pollster surveyed 1,966 registered voters between April 20 and 21. One of the questions asked was: “Is Joe Biden mentally fit to serve as President of the United States or do you have doubts about his fitness for office?”
A majority — 53% — said that they “have doubts about his fitness,” while 47% indicated that, in their belief, Biden “is mentally fit.” Breaking things down by party affiliation, only 13% of Republicans and 20% of Independents said that Biden is mentally fit. Sixty-seven percent of Democrats, on the other hand, said the same.
The pollster followed this question up with, “Do you think Joe Biden is showing he is too old to be President or do you think he is showing he is fit to be president?”
A clear majority — 62% — said that Biden is “showing he is too old.” This includes 53% of Republicans, 29% of Independents, and 19% of Democrats. Only 38% overall said that Biden is “showing he is fit to be president.”
Biden’s cognitive health has been questioned over the past year, particularly because of his frequent and increasing number of gaffes on the world stage, in many cases.
Just this week he added another one to the list, saying, “We’re going to seize their yachts, their luxury homes, and other ill-begotten gains of Putin’s kleptoc- — yeah — kleptocracy and klep- — the guys who are the kleptocracies.”
Republicans, in particular, have suggested that Biden may not be mentally fit to be president. They have called for him to at least undergo a cognitive assessment, but Biden, so far, has refused.
The White House has simply been ignoring any questions related to Biden’s mental fitness.
