A national poll suggests the majority of Americans believe President Biden is not in charge of executing presidential duties.
A Convention of States Action and Trafalgar Group poll found 57 percent of respondents believe ‘others are directing policy and agenda,’ while 37 percent believe Biden is in charge. Participants ranged in ideologies, with 39 percent identifying as Democrat, 37 percent Republican, and 25 non-partisan or other. Only 11 percent of Republicans believed Biden is in charge, and 32 percent of Democrats believe others are directing his actions.
Regarding the results, Mark Meckler, president of the Convention of States Action, said, “The American people deserve transparency from the Biden administration as to the true state of the president’s mental and physical health, and leaders in both parties in Congress need to follow through on this immediately.”
Biden has yet to take a cognitive test and concerns over his mental stability and ableness have increased during his time in office. While campaigning, Biden was asked if he had taken a test, he told an interviewer from the National Association of Black & Hispanic Journalists, “No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man. That’s like saying you before you got on this program, you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?”
