72% of voters say Biden not mentally fit to serve as president: Poll

A poll released Sunday found that 72% of registered voters believe that US President Joe Biden does not possess the mental and cognitive health required to serve as head of state.

The survey, conducted by CBS News/YouGov, comes amid growing concern over whether Biden is mentally fit for office following the first live presidential debate on Thursday ahead of November presidential elections.

The poll indicated that 45% of Democrats believe that Biden should withdraw from the presidential race due to health concerns.

When asked about former President Donald Trump’s mental and cognitive fitness for the presidency, 50% responded yes and 49% no.

The debate, held by CNN, intensified discussions about Biden’s capability for a second term. Despite Trump not gaining a clear advantage, Biden’s performance did little to alleviate concerns about his age.
