A majority of Americans believe that President Joe Biden is not the one directing policy and agenda from the White House, a new poll reveals.
According to a a nationwide survey conducted by the Trafalgar Group of 1086 likely voters in general elections, they found that 56.5 percent of respondents believe that others are the ones calling the shots in the White House, not Biden, while 36.4 percent responded that Biden is indeed directing all policy and agenda.
Democrats were more likely than Republicans or independents to believe that Biden was directing all policy and agenda at 58.6 percent to 11 percent and 36.1 percent respectively.
Republicans overwhelmingly said that Biden was not the one in control, at 83.6 percent, compared to just 31.7 percent of Democrats and 36.1 percent of independents.
The survey, conducted in late June, comes as Representative Ronny Jackson of Texas, who served as the former White House physician for both Barrack Obama and Donald Trump, once again called for Biden to take a cognitive exam, pointing to an increasing number of instances where Biden looks "confused."
"I think he’s demonstrating every single day that there is something going on," Jackson told Fox News. "You don’t need to be a physician to look at this behavior and see there’s something concerning happening."
"You can go back – there’s forty years of tape of this man – he’s always made gaffes and stuff but these are different, he’s confused, he’s disoriented," he added.
"We all know people who are 100-years old, who basically are as sharp as a tack, and we know people who are in their mid-60’s that having some cognitive difficulties…and I think he’s on that end of the spectrum," said Jackson. "He’s just not aging gracefully at this point."
Jackson added that when the doctors conduct a physical exam on Biden, they should add in a cognitive assessment.
