Due to his ever-growing legacy of public gaffes and displays of confusion, 38% of likely U.S.  voters now believe that former Vice President Joe Biden has “some form of dementia,” a national Rasmussen Poll released Monday reveals.

On June 25 and 28, 2020, Rasmussen surveyed 1,000 U.S. likely voters, asking the following question:

“From what you have seen and read, do you believe Joe Biden is suffering from some form of dementia?”

While 38% said “yes,” Biden is suffering from dementia, slightly under half (48%) said “no” and 14% were “not sure.” Sixty-six percent (66%) of Republicans believe Biden has dementia – more than three times the percent of Democrats (20%) and greater than twice those with “other” political leanings (20%).

Likewise, while 61% of all voters said it’s important (41% “very important,” 20% “somewhat important”) for Biden to “address the dementia issue publicly,” Republicans were the most likely to consider it crucial. Among Republicans, 81% said it’s either very (65%) or somewhat (16%) important for Biden to publicly address the issue. In contrast, 51% of both Democrats and “other” voters said they view it as at least somewhat important.

Of the 38% of all U.S. voters who think Biden is suffering from dementia, 93% said it’s important that he address his ailment, with 78% calling it very important.

Meanwhile, a third (33%) of the 48% of all U.S. voters who believe Biden does not have any form of dementia still think it’s either very (10%) or somewhat (23%) important for him to publicly address it, anyway.

Biden’s mental lapses have gained added public attention since he became the frontrunner to become the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential candidate. Last week, for example, Biden claimed while campaigning in Pennsylvania that 120 million Americans have died from the coronavirus – 1,000 times the actual count.

“If I ever said something so mortifyingly stupid,” media “would come down on me with a vengeance,” President Donald Trump said, reacting to Biden’s gaffe.
