POLL: Confidence in Biden’s Mental Capacity & Health Dwindles – Particularly Among Democrat & Independent or Undecided Voters



Confidence in Biden’s Mental Capacity & Health dwindles – particularly among Democrat & Independent or Undecided Voters

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — Driven in large part by the increasing concerns among his own party's Democrat Voters, just 37% of U.S. "Registered Voters" now say they believe that Joe Biden is "mentally fit" – down from an already low 42% prior to his debate performance with Donald Trump – and voter's perceptions about Biden’s age and physical fitness have also hit record lows according to the most recent Morning Consult Weekly Tracking Poll.

Among Democrat Voters, 68% say Biden is mentally fit, down 9 points from before the debate.

Both numbers are the lowest on record since Morning Consult began asking the question in 2020.

Surveys conducted June 21-23, 2024, and June 28-July 1, 2024, among representative samples of roughly 2,000 registered voters each, with unweighted margins of error of +/-2%.
 
The coverage of Biden’s performance in the June 27th debate – which sent Democrats nationwide and in Washington, D.C. into a panic – is without a doubt the worst news cycle Mr. Biden has had to weather since entering office. As a result, as the Presidential Campaign enters into a crucial phase ahead of each party's National Conventions:
 
  • Voters are now 31 points more likely to say they have heard something "negative than positive" about Joe Biden in the past week,
  • representing the widest gap captured by Morning Consult since it began tracking the question weekly in November 2022.
The Bottom Line

With confidence in Biden’s mental capacity and health dwindling – particularly among Democrat and Independent or Undecided Voters – his debate performance and subsequent verbal gaffes will continue to hamper his chances of defeating former President Trump, and will likely contribute to Democrats’ worst fears of losing Senate & Houe of Representative seats in Congeress.
