Joe Biden’s mental health has been a topic of debate for many years. Rep. Ronny J. Jackson (Republican from Texas), believes Joe Biden’s cognitive problems have been hidden. Last week, 38 Republicans in Congress including Jackson, asked Biden to take a cognitive exam.
According to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, almost two-thirds agree with them. Sixty-three percent (63%) of voters agree that Biden’s “mental decline” has “become obvious,” with 47% who strongly agree. Only 31% of voters disagree with Biden’s “mental decline”, including 22% who strongly disagree.
Sixty-six percent of voters also believe that Biden should undergo a cognitive test and that the results should be made public. Only 26% of those who disagree are in agreement.
However, the poll shows that Democrats are mostly in denial about Biden’s declining mental health. Only 23% of Democrats and 73% of Republicans strongly agree that Biden has experienced “mental decline” and “forgetfulness over the last two years.
But 43% of Democrats think that Biden should undergo a cognitive test, and release the results. This is a small number compared to the 86% Republicans and 70% independents who want Biden to take the test. However, it’s higher than you might think. Perhaps Democrats believe the cognitive test will show that Biden is firing on all levels.
Biden would not have taken one. I doubt that he would release the results publicly. Trump was happy to accept one and release the results, even though it was not necessary. Biden should do the same.
