If you have been paying attention to Joe Biden during the 2020 presidential election campaign or during his first year in the White House you may have questions about his health, mental and otherwise.
But what was once whispered about in private is now being openly talked about as people are expressing their concerns about his mental wellbeing.
“Everyone knew President Reagan was losing it by the time he came to the end of his term,” a source who used to work in the White House said. “Reagan left office when he was 77. Biden is 79 and only in the first year.”
That is a terrifying thought when you consider that the man appears to have mental gaffes frequently and the media usually ignores it.
“It’s sad and a little frightening that the commander-in-chief, the guy in charge of nuclear weapons and who represents America, looks this confused, weak, feeble and uncertain,” former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said.
“As was the case when President George W. Bush had the same procedure in 2002 and 2007, and following the process set out in the Constitution, President Biden will transfer power to the Vice President for the brief period of time when he is under anesthesia. The Vice President will work from her office in the West Wing during this time,” she said.
But the procedure came as many have begun questioning the health and fitness of the near octogenarian president.
In a new poll voters expressed doubts about Biden’s health and fitness.
“Only 40 percent of voters surveyed agreed with the statement that Biden ‘is in good health,’ while 50 percent disagreed. That 10-percentage-point gap — outside the poll’s margin of error — represents a massive 29-point shift since October 2020, when Morning Consult last surveyed the question and found voters believed Biden was in good health by a 19-point margin,” it said.
And when it came to his mental fitness voters were split evenly on the question, with 46 percent saying he is and 48 percent believing that he is not. But in a poll that was taken last October, voters thought he was mentally fit by a margin of 21-points.
It also comes as another poll showed that the majority of Americans want Biden to step aside and allow someone else to be the Democrat nominee in the 2024 presidential election.
According to a Hill-HarrisX poll, most Americans want Biden to step aside for another candidate to be the Democratic presidential nominee in 2024.
The poll found that a whopping 61% of voters prefer that Biden not seek a second term in office.
Just 24% of respondents supported a reelection bid, and another 15% said they were unsure if he should run again.
