Americans Divided in Opinions of Biden's Mental Fitness: Poll


A poll found Americans are split over whether President Joe Biden is “mentally fit.”

According to a Politico/Morning Consult poll, respondents were asked about Biden’s mental fitness as well as his health. When asked if Biden is “mentally fit,” only 46% agree with the statement while 48% disagree.

Forty percent say Biden is in good health compared to 50% who disagree. The participants also responded to a question about whether Biden is “stable.” A total of 44% of Americans say they agree while 50% disagree.

Additionally, participants weighed in on the job Biden is doing as president. Forty-four percent of Americans say they approve while more than 50% disapprove of the job he is doing.

The poll was conducted between November 13 and 15. It surveyed 1,998 registered voters. The responses come just days after a poll conducted by The Washington Post and ABC News found Biden’s approval rating stands at a record low of 41%.

Vice President Kamala Harris’ poll numbers are also sinking. Last week a USA TODAY and Suffolk University poll found her approval rating stands at 28%, as IJR reported.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki appeared to respond to a CNN story titled, “Exasperation and dysfunction: Inside Kamala Harris’ frustrating start as vice president.”

She tweeted, “For anyone who needs to hear it. [Vice President Kamala Harris] is not only a vital partner to [President Biden] but a bold leader who has taken on key, important challenges facing the country — from voting rights to addressing root causes of migration to expanding broadband.”

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain also said during an appearance on CNN Harris is doing a “magnificent job,” adding, “And by the way, in that report, I’m quoted as saying what I believe, which is that there’s no vice president I’ve seen that’s gotten off to a faster start than Vice President Harris. She’s doing an amazing job for the president.”
