American voters say Trump is better able to handle nuclear emergency than Biden: poll

The poll found only 45% of voters are confident in Biden's ability to manage a nuclear emergency.


A recent poll has found that American voters have more confidence in former President Donald Trump's ability to handle a nuclear emergency compared to President Joe Biden, should the need arise.

According to a poll conducted by J.L. Partners as reported by the Daily Mail, when respondents were asked about their confidence in each candidate's capacity to manage a nuclear emergency effectively, Trump led Biden with 56% of respondents expressing confidence in him, compared to 45% for Biden.

Additionally, the poll asked questions about each man's cognitive ability and leadership qualities. Trump significantly outpaced Biden in questions related to maintaining focus during meetings and comprehensively understanding national security briefings.

When assessing each candidate's ability to make it through a potential one-hour meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, nearly two-thirds of respondents expressed confidence in Trump while only 43% said they were confident Biden could manage such a task.

Biden failed to surpass 50% confidence in any of the areas concerning cognitive ability and performance, while Trump consistently garnered majority support.

While many may assume these results are due to Biden’s old age, James Johnson, co-founder of the organization that conducted the poll, highlighted that age may not be a notable factor in the answers from respondents.

“Though Trump is only three years Biden's junior, they think he is up to the job and will be able to manage the pressures of the office,” Johnson explained. 

“A lot of this is due to Trump's presentation, frenetic activity, and regular stump speeches. He is also resting on his political reputation for strength: voters say strength is Trump’s biggest asset, and that he is more physically strong and able to get things done than Biden,” he continued.

The survey comes as tensions are increasing in both the Middle East, with a war between Israel and the Hamas terrrorists in Gaza, as well as the continuing fight in Ukraine between that nation and their neighboring aggressor Russia. Additional geopolitical challenges includeIran's nuclear ambitions and China's assertiveness towards Taiwan. In short, concerns about national security have heightened among many Americans.
