Democrats had to overlook President Joe Biden's obvious cognitive deficit to get him elected in 2020. However, the charade is all over.
Fifty-nine percent of voters believe Biden should submit to a cognitive fitness test and publicly release the results, Breitbart reported. This new McLaughlin and Associates poll published Friday builds on existing data suggesting voters don't think he's fit to serve.
The question posed to 1,000 voters was, "Do you think Joe Biden should take a cognitive health test and release it publicly?" The response was 59% who thought he should, while 30% said Biden should not have to take the test, and 11% did not answer.
A poll taken in December of 2021 similarly revealed that 60% wanted Biden to take the test. Compounding those bleak numbers was an April poll showing 62% of voters believed that Biden was too old and therefore unfit for office.
There have been several red flags about Biden's physical and mental fitness the media has sought to ignore. In March 2021, he struggled to go up the stairs of Air Force One and slipped several times in an embarrassing display of feebleness.
Biden was caught with a notecard in June explaining basic directions for his conduct. "YOU enter the Roosevelt Room and say hello to the participants" it said as well as "YOU take YOUR seat." That same month, Biden fell off of his bicycle after his foot got stuck in the pedal.
Earlier this year, 38 Republican lawmakers demanded Biden take a cognitive test because of fears he's suffering from dementia. The signors included Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), who was a White House physician to former President Donald Trump.
Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott also expressed his worries about the president. "Joe Biden is unwell. He's unfit for office," Scott explained in a statement.
"He's incoherent, incapacitated & confused," he added. "The most effective thing Joe Biden can do to solve the inflation crisis he created is to resign."
The apparent decline in the 79-year-old president is the worst kept secret in government. It's only a matter of time before they must officially acknowledge what Americans are increasingly seeing -- he's unwell.
