Concerns over Biden's cognitive ability reignited this week after the President's latest word jumble. During a speech detailing how individuals making less than $125,000 can receive government money, Biden hilariously slipped up on his words, according to Fox News. While reading directly off the teleprompter, Biden spelled out “D-O-T” while giving the URL for the Federal Trade Commission's website.
“If you get any questionable calls please tell us by going to report fraud – report fraud – D-O-T-F-T-C-dot -gov,” the President stumbled through. All this while squinting his eyes as he does his best to correctly read the words he's being spoon fed via the teleprompter. Although this slip up only lasted a few seconds, it's yet another display of Biden's inability to speak coherently.
These mishaps are concerning to American voters. According to the latest poll conducted by Harvard Harris, Biden polls behind both Former President Donald Trump and Former Vice President Mike Pence, at low of 43 percent. Just as important, Biden's disapproval rating is at 51 percent making him just as unpopular as Hillary Clinton.
While Biden's overall approval rating is low, the American people's trust in his cognitive ability is even lower. When asked “Is Joe Biden mentally fit to serve as President of the United States or do you have doubts about his fitness for office?” polls show that 55 percent of those surveyed say they have doubts regarding his mental fitness.
Although survey findings are understandable considering Biden's inability to make sense when addressing the nation, this isn't a good look for the United States.
When asked a similar question regarding Biden's age, “Do you think Joe Biden is showing that he is too old to be president or do you think he is showing he is fit to be president?” 92 percent of Republicans said he is too old, and 35 percent of Democrats agreed he is showing signs of being too old. This shows that among voters, even Democrats are showing a notable level of concern regarding about the current president.
With the mid-term elections less than a month away, it will be interesting to see whether Biden's low ratings lead to stronger results for Republicans in the House and Senate.
