Rasmussen Reports Poll: 20% of Democrats ‘think Biden has dementia,’ 38% among all voters
Washington Examiner ^ | 06/30/2020 | Paul Bedard

Joe Biden’s gaffes and mumblings are catching up to him with his own base of voters, with one-fifth believing he has dementia, according to a new survey.

Rasmussen Reports revealed in new data shared with Secrets that 20% of Democrats believe he suffers from the debilitating disease. Many more Republicans, 66%, agree.

Overall, 38% believe Biden has dementia, likely driven by his misstatements during speeches and Zoom events.

Seniors are the age group most likely to think Biden is suffering from dementia, said the Rasmussen analysis.

The report followed a Zogby poll that found 55% believe that the 77-year-old Democrat and former vice president is in the early stages of dementia. “Right now voters have questions concerning Biden's mental health and stamina,” said the Zogby analysis.

Rasmussen took the question further, asking if likely voters believed Biden already had dementia, although it did not define the condition.

It found that voters want the vice president to address the concerns. “Sixty-one percent of all voters believe it is important for Biden to address the dementia issue publicly, with 41% who say it is ‘Very Important,’” said Rasmussen.

Just last week, Biden, who would be 78 on Inauguration Day, said that 120 million Americans had died from COVID-19 before he corrected himself. “Now we have over 120 million dead from COVID, I mean, 120,000 dead from COVID. And you have so many, now we’re past 2 million, I mean, and we’re talking about it like it’s over. I mean, it’s over. My God,” he said.

The gaffes are being collected by the GOP, which has created the hashtag #BarelyThereBiden on Twitter.

Just 20%?

80% of Dem voters must have it themselves.

RE: Just 20%?

My question is this -— why would these 20% even want a man with dementia to be our President?

No, he will scare the heck out of people after they see him fumble and mumble during the debates. Your eyes and ears are not deceiving you, he can barely form a coherent sentence, certainly not two in a row.

Joe Biden is just a face to show on TV. I think Progressives should be happy Biden is an empty shell. That will mean the real power will be behind the throne.

That’s what I would love to see too: what’s the crossover between people who think Biden is losing his mind and people who plan to vote for him. Total insanity. Don’t like the President? That’s fine. But being willing to vote for someone who has no idea where he is or what he’s doing half the time because you don’t like the current President? That’s crazy.

It’s absolutely immoral how the Democrats are propping him up and putting him in this position, just because he is politically expedient for them at this point.

Something doesn’t add up. If 20% of the Rats believe it then the 38% overall number is way too low. It is amazing how well the MSM is able to cover up most of the the signs.

I won't repeat the line from the Big Lebowski about the woods.

I don’t see any coverage of Biden’s declining mental facilities in the MSM. Where are all these people finding out? It gives me hope for the future.

They know the deal. They knowingly will be voting for whatever socialist/BLM Vice President his handlers decide. They prop up ol’ Joe as a kind, soft spoken, child loving, pacifist wanting to unite the country. They know full well that a mouthy, radical black female would never make it on the top of a presidential ticket.

Biden to be told what to do by handlers....

Like the Claude Rains senator and others in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington told Jimmy Stewart to just relax and they’ll tell him how to vote each time.

IOW, it'll be a 58-42 landslide in favor of President Trump.

Thanks for that.

I haven't had a ray of hope for a long time. This gives me one. You can tell I take a peak at lists of headlines "Trump Far Behind in Polls Again." Should turn my gaze away.

As long as Biden picks a VP they're happy with, Democrats won't care if he's comatose (in fact, many of them might prefer a VP Kamala Harris or something equally repulsive calling the shots).

On the other hand, the small number of voters who can be convinced to switch parties one way or the other may care, and may resent the fact that the Democrats' VP pick is going to be the de facto President.

They think he has dementia, but they’re going to vote for him.

I have no words.
