Majority of Voters Doubt Biden’s Mental Fitness as Concerns Mount

In a recent CBS News/YouGov poll, a whopping 72 percent of registered voters indicated their lack of confidence in President Biden’s mental and cognitive abilities to serve as the leader of the free world. This stark figure highlights an alarming eight-point increase since June, underscoring the growing concerns over Biden’s fitness for office.

Interestingly, the same poll revealed a stark contrast in public opinion regarding former President Donald Trump, with 50 percent of voters believing in his cognitive capacity to hold the highest office. The partisan breakdown in the poll was evident, but what caught the eye was the significant double-digit shift among Democrats and independents, indicating a broader disillusionment with Biden’s performance. 


The poll results took a more damning turn when respondents were asked about whether Biden should continue his presidential bid. Only 28 percent supported his candidacy, a sharp decline from 37 percent just a few months ago. Even within the Democratic ranks, nearly half of registered Democrats expressed their belief that Biden should step aside, showing a noticeable ten-point shift since February.

Critics of Biden have pointed to his advanced age, campaign vigor, and effectiveness in office as key reasons for their lack of faith in his ability to lead. The speculation around Biden’s future has intensified, with reports of discussions among Democrat donors, strategists, and elected officials about the possibility of a substitution.

Biden’s resolve to stay in the race has been met with skepticism, as doubts continue to swirl about his capacity to fulfill the duties of the presidency. While insiders suggest that any potential transition may not occur until the Democratic National Convention in August, the uncertainty surrounding Biden’s candidacy lingers, prompting speculation about who could step in to lead the party’s charge.
