Vast Majority Questioning Biden's Fitness For Presidency After Debate Disaster

A recent poll reveals growing concerns about President Biden's cognitive abilities are mounting among Americans following his latest debate performance.

Fox News reported that a CBS News survey indicates a significant decline in public confidence in President Biden’s cognitive fitness after his recent presidential debate performance.

Last Sunday, CBS News released findings from a poll conducted among registered voters, highlighting increased skepticism about President Biden’s ability to serve.

The poll, conducted between Friday and Saturday, surveyed 1,130 registered voters, with a margin of error of ±4.2 points.

Public Reacts to Biden's Debate Performance

During the debate, only 18% of voters reported that President Biden's performance inspired confidence in his cognitive capabilities. This was a stark contrast to former President Trump, who seemed to inspire more confidence, with 44% of voters favoring his performance.

Moreover, only 21% of the respondents felt that Biden articulated his ideas clearly during the debate, which has raised concerns about his mental and cognitive health among voters.

Before the debate, 35% of respondents believed that Biden was cognitively and mentally fit to serve as president. However, this figure dropped sharply to 27% following his debate performance.

Conversely, the percentage of voters expressing doubts about Biden's fitness to serve increased from 65% to 72%, underscoring a growing concern among the electorate regarding his cognitive health.

Interestingly, the perception of President Trump’s cognitive abilities was more evenly split among the public, with 50% viewing them favorably and 49% unfavorably.

Democratic Base Split on Biden's Future

Among registered Democrats, there is a divide over whether Biden should continue his campaign. While 55% support his continuation, 45% believe he should step aside. This split could influence Democratic strategy as the election approaches.

This sentiment is echoed by significant editorial voices. Both The New York Times and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution have published opinions suggesting that Biden should not seek re-election. The Times stated, "The greatest public service Mr. Biden can now perform is to announce that he will not continue to run for re-election."

The rising doubts about Biden's cognitive abilities and the impact of his debate performance have sparked a debate about his viability in the upcoming election, potentially affecting his re-election campaign.

The editorial boards of prominent newspapers have contributed to the discourse surrounding President Biden’s future in politics. Their opinions have a significant influence and reflect a broader concern among the public and media alike.


As doubts increase, the discussions about the potential implications for the Democratic Party and its strategy for the upcoming elections continue to gain momentum.

In conclusion, the CBS News poll highlights a significant shift in voter sentiment regarding President Biden's cognitive health post-debate, raising concerns about his fitness to serve and influencing public and editorial opinion.

This survey reflects a crucial moment in Biden's presidency, as he faces growing skepticism from both the public and influential editorial voices.
