According to the Issues & Insights/TIPP poll released earlier this week, the majority of Americans polled were concerned about President Biden’s mental health. At 79 years old, Biden is the oldest sitting U.S. President in history.
The Poll found that 59% of respondents were “concerned” about the president’s mental health, with 36% saying they were “very concerned” and 23% “somewhat concerned.”
That’s a lot of concern.
The poll also showed a deep split along party lines.
From The New York Post:
Just 39% of Biden’s fellow Democrats said they were “concerned,” while 82% of Republicans and 56% of Independents said the same.
Factors like gender and age had almost no effect on the respondents’ opinions, with 59% of men and women alike expressing concern about Biden’s mental health.
“The fact is, based on these polling data, there is genuine concern among virtually all groups over Biden’s cognitive health,” wrote Terry Jones, editor of Issues & Insights. “It has taken on political urgency with the looming 2022 midterm elections, which, if Republicans prevail, could well turn Biden into a lame duck.”
The survey was conducted online over the course of two days in early August among 1,355 adults nationwide. It has a margin of error of 2.8 percentage polls.
