Polling organization Zogby International recently surveyed 1,007 "likely voters" what their views were on the possibility that presidential candidate Joe Biden may be experiencing dementia, and the results shouldn't shock anyone who's witnessed his recent gaffes.
A whopping 55% of the 1,007 people think Biden, 77, may be demonstrating "the early stages of dementia."
“Overall, subgroups who normally approve of Trump’s job as president, were the most likely to believe Biden could be suffering from dementia,” the poll found.
“Thus, majorities of Republicans (77% more likely/23% less likely) and Independents (56% more likely/44% less likely) thought Joe Biden had early-onset dementia; while nearly a third of Democrats (32% more likely/68% less likely) thought this was the case.”
“At the same time, some important subgroups did not believe the vice president was exhibiting a declining mental capacity. While a majority of men (60% more likely/40% less likely) thought it this was likely, women (50% more likely/50% less likely) were less likely to think that the vice president was in the early stages of dementia,” the pollster wrote.
President Donald Trump has referred to Biden as "Sleepy Joe" due to his repeated verbal stumbles and what appears to be lapses of memory.
“They are going to put him in a home and other people are going to be running the country,” Trump said at rally held in March.
“Sleepy Joe,” Trump continued, “he doesn’t even know where he is or what he’s doing or what office he’s running for. Honestly, I don’t think he knows what office he’s running for.”
The majority of those surveyed about Biden's mental stability appear to more or less agree with Trump's sentiments.
Biden sought to shrug off the accusations and concern about his mental health in an interview with the Peter Hamby, saying "I can hardly wait to get onto the stage with Donald Trump. Look, I certainly miss being out on the trail connecting face-to-face to people. Trump is a master at laying nicknames on people.”
“But the vast majority of the voters out there, including young people, are not getting all their news from the internet,” Biden continued. “But I’m trying to compete there. We’re getting started late in the comparative sense. One hundred and two million video views across social media platforms since mid-March for me."
