Poll: Only 49% Think Joe Biden Is Mentally Stable Enough to Be President


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

A shocking new survey has found that less than half of Americans polled believe that the current president of the United States has the mental capacity to hold his elected position.

According to the result of the Fox News poll, just 49 percent of respondents think that Biden has the “mental soundness” to serve as president.

“While 49 percent said yes, 48 percent said no. When respondents were asked weeks before, between September 7-10, 49 percent said yes, and only 45 percent said no, handing Biden three more points of less confidence in his mental soundness on Sunday,” Breitbart News reported, citing the survey.


The news site added:

On the question asking if respondents believe “Joe Biden is a strong leader, or not?” only 45 percent said yes, down four points from October of 2020. Fifty-three percent said Biden is not a strong leader, up eight points since October 2020.

The poll also asked, “Do you think the country has become more or less united since Joe Biden took office?” Fifty-four percent of the country is less united, while 37 percent said the country is more united since Biden took office.

The results of the survey come on the heels of comments made by a growing number of lawmakers, mostly Republicans, who have used various public performances, gaffes, and seeming lapses in judgment to question the president’s mental fitness.

“There’s real questions right now as to who’s making the decisions,” Sen. James Risch, R-Idaho, the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told Secretary of State Antony Blinken during the latter’s testimony last week, during which the top diplomat answered questions about Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, during which 13 U.S. service members were killed by a suicide bomber.

“We know for a fact that the President of the United States is somewhat disadvantaged here, in that someone is calling shots. He can’t even speak without someone in the White House censoring it or signing off on it,” Risch said, noting several incidents when the White House feed was cut mid-sentence by “a puppeteer act” while Biden was speaking, and when he appears to be reading from a pre-approved list of reporters to call on during press conferences.


In addition, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, the former White House physician who served three presidents, has increasingly raised questions about Biden’s mental fitness, especially after former President Donald Trump aced a mental fitness test Jackson administered to him while both were still in office.

“I’ve been saying that it’s only going to get worse, and guess what? We’re watching that happen right before our eyes right now,” Jackson said during an interview in July, opining that eventually, Biden would have to be removed from office via the 25th Amendment.

“And I’m at the point right now where, you know, I went from, you know, telling people, we should be concerned about what might potentially be going on, to now saying, hey, what is happening right now?” he said.

“Where are the people in our academic medicine that were out there calling for President Trump to have a cognitive test? Where are these people?” Jackson continued.


“There’s something seriously going on with this man right now. And you know, I think that he’s either gonna, he’s either gonna resign, they’re going to convince him to resign from office at some point in the near future for medical issues, or they’re going to have to use the 25th Amendment to get rid of this man right now. There’s some serious stuff going on right now,” he asked.


More recently, freshman Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., rankled Biden supporters when he suggested that first lady Jill Biden be “called out” for allowing her husband to run for president in the first place.

“I think we should indict Jill Biden – not saying indict in terms of criminal – but I’m saying we should call her out for being so cruel to her husband,” Cawthorn said in July.

“The man is clearly mentally unstable. He’s having some form of degradation of his mind. And they are putting him up here to be assaulted by the greatest debaters the country has to go against him. And right now his mind simply cannot handle it,” he added.
