A new poll of likely voters finds half of the country is concerned about Joe Biden’s mental and physical ability to carry out the job of being president.
This should come as a surprise to no one. All you have to do is watch Biden bumbling through his public appearances and you’ll wonder if he’s OK.
Do Democrats think Biden is going to get better over time?
The Washington Examiner reports:
Day 49: Half the nation worried Biden not ‘physically and mentally up to the job’
It doesn’t take much for the nation’s voters to become concerned that President Biden, the oldest new chief executive at 78 years old, might not be up for the job.
The latest proof: His resistance to holding a full-blown press conference now 49 days into his presidency has half the country worried.
In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey of likely voters, 50% said they are not confident that “Joe Biden is physically and mentally up to the job of being president of the United States.” Another 48% have confidence in Biden, though only 34% were “very confident” that he was up to the job.
Driving that, Rasmussen said, was Biden’s refusal to meet with reporters. He has had some interactions with the small pool of reporters, but his sometimes awkward speaking style has led to criticism. And the White House has recently cut short his appearances.
This might explain why Biden’s handlers are so determined to keep him from answering questions from the press.

Trump talked to the press all day. Biden can’t even handle it once.
