Half of America doubts President Joe Biden is "physically or mentally" fit for the job, according to the latest poll by Rasmussen Reports.
It is an alarming finding after reports of President Biden failing to remember the name of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, calling him "the guy that runs that outfit over there," the New York Post reported Monday.
The 2-question survey asked:
- "How concerned are you that President Biden has not held a press conference?"
- "How confident are you that Joe Biden is physically and mentally up to the job of being President of the United States?"
The two might be related, and the responses were, too — as 50% of likely voters lacked confidence in President Biden's fitness for office, while 52% of likely voters were concerned he has yet to hold a press conference, including 32% who are "very concerned."
"More than six weeks since his inauguration, President Biden still hasn't held his first White House press conference, and half of voters are worried about his ability to do the job," the Rasmussen Reports summary read.
