Yipes: Less than 1/2 of likely voters say Biden doesn’t suffer dementia.

More specifically, a recent Rasmussen poll of 1,000 likely voters found:

38% think Biden is suffering dementia … the breakdown: 66% of GOP, 30% of Independents, 20% of Dems

48% do not think Biden is  suffering dementia …  apparently, they think either (1) he’s sharp as a tack, or (2) he’s just “Joe being Joe”, or (3) there’s no dementia, he just started long ago at a low base

14% said they didn’t know or were unsure …  or were, themselves hopelessly confused.


Drilling down on the survey’s results….


> Seniors are the most likely to believe Biden has dementia.

> Men are more likely than women to think Biden is suffering from some form of dementia

> 56% believe all major presidential candidates should release at least their most recent medical records to the public.

> Most voters, including just over half of Democrats, feel it is important for Biden to publicly address the issue.

> 86% say a candidate’s health is important to their vote


Too bad that Rasmussen didn’t ask:

> Should candidates “recent medical records” include cognitive tests and psychological profiles?

> Would you vote for a candidate that you think suffers dementia?

My bet: The vast majority of the 20% of Dems who think Biden suffers dementia would still vote for him … arguing that: at least he’s not crazy (like Trump is).

Tough choice, I guess.


P.S. For the record:

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, dementia is “a usually progressive condition (such as Alzheimer’s disease) marked by the development of multiple cognitive deficits (such as memory impairment, aphasia and the inability to plan and initiate complex behavior).”
