A new poll from the Associated Press is full of more bad news for Joe Biden.
The worst part is that almost half of Americans don’t believe Biden is mentally fit for the job of president.
This is an issue that has dogged Biden for a year now and it’s not likely to get better because he is not likely to improve.
From the Associated Press:
Biden approval hits new low at one-year mark: AP-NORC poll
President Joe Biden ends his first year in the White House with a clear majority of Americans for the first time disapproving of his handling of the presidency in the face of an unrelenting pandemic and roaring inflation, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
More Americans disapprove than approve of how Biden is handling his job as president, 56% to 43%. As of now, just 28% of Americans say they want Biden to run for reelection in 2024, including only 48% of Democrats.
Asked on Wednesday at a wide-ranging news conference about his flagging popularity, Biden responded, “I don’t believe the polls.”
It’s a stark reversal from early in Biden’s presidency.
This is the most brutal part:
Only about a quarter were very confident that Biden “has the mental capability to serve effectively as president” or “is healthy enough to serve effectively as president.” Close to half are not confident in Biden’s mental capability or health.
Asked by a reporter at Wednesday’s news conference about other polling that shows a significant percentage of Americans had concerns about Biden’s mental health, the president shrugged off those findings.
Here’s Biden blowing off the question at his presser:

Joe Biden will never be rid of this problem.
It’s part of the national perception of him now.
