The questions about Joe Biden’s mental acuity keep growing louder and louder.
And Biden just got one piece of very bad news.
Now, Biden is going to have no choice but to answer questions about his health.
Ever since he declared his intention to run for President, Joe Biden has been assuring everyone that there is nothing to worry about in regards to his mental acuity.
He says everything is fine, and that he is as sharp as ever.
But his constant slip-ups as President have raised serious questions about whether or not that is really true.
And the message seems to have gotten through to Americans.
According to a poll from Issues & Insights, Americans are very worried about the mental acuity of their President.
The report says, “Even before he became president, the now-79-year-old Joe Biden faced serious and persistent questions about his mental health. Among average Americans, those questions have become a major issue, the last I&I/TIPP Poll shows.”
“The I&I/TIPP Poll, conducted online from Aug. 2-4 among 1,335 adults nationwide, shows that a 59% majority now say they are ‘very concerned’ (36%) or ‘somewhat concerned’ about Biden’s mental health.”
“That compares with just 39% saying they are ‘not very concerned’ (18%) or ‘not at all concerned’ (21%). Only 2% of respondents said they were ‘not sure.’ The poll has a margin of error of +/-2.8 percentage points.”
This is very bad news for Biden as he approaches his first midterm cycle. The concerns of Americans go beyond a policy here or there that they might disagree with. Americans believe he is mentally unfit to be President.
That type of perception is going to linger with him for the rest of his administration. It is not going to go away, especially as he approaches his 80th birthday.
The report continues, “among the various demographic categories, responses were surprisingly uniform. Men and women, for instance, were identical in their concern over Biden’s mental health at 59% each, while those saying they weren’t concerned included 39% of men and 38% of women.”
“Broken down by ethnicity and race, solid majorities of both Hispanics (61%) and whites (63%) expressed concerns over Biden’s mental condition.”
“The fact is, based on this polling data, there is genuine concern among virtually all groups over Biden’s cognitive health. It has taken on political urgency with the looming 2022 midterm elections, which, if Republicans prevail, could well turn Biden into a lame duck.”
“The issue, which became prominent with Biden’s pandemic ‘basement campaign’ during the 2020 presidential election, gained further traction after he took office in January 2021 and began making a series of verbal gaffes.”
Democrats can try as hard as they want to run away from this problem, but there is no way they can avoid facing it head-on and addressing it directly with the American people.
Americans of all stripes are worried about Joe Biden’s cognitive health. And until they have answers, it is going to be a disaster for the Democratic Party.
