Americans are beginning to doubt Biden’s mental capacity

It turns out that the world has been making fun of President Biden for a reason. Judging by opinion polls, many American citizens believe that it is time for their geriatric leader to resign.

    A majority of American voters think President Joe Biden is unfit to be president and doubt his mental capacity, a Harris poll showed.

    Data from the Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll (the survey was conducted April 21-22 this year) showed that 53 percent of those polled doubt that Joe Biden is mentally fit to serve as president. And 62 percent think Biden is too old to be leading the US. Somehow, Democrats did not notice his mental decline when they voted for him not long ago.

    Twelve percent of Democrats were skeptical of Biden’s mental ability, while 63 percent said the president was mentally fit.

    On images from social media, Biden appeared bewildered and confused. On the Monday after Easter Sunday, Biden had to be guided by an Easter Bunny while First Lady Jill Biden was caught on a hot mic instructing her doddering husband to wave to the crowd.

    President Biden, almost 80, said he planned to run again in 2024 since he felt he was the only Democrat capable of defeating Donald Trump. In a potential primary ballot, 37 percent would support Biden against Vice President Kamala Harris (14 percent), Sen. Bernie Sanders (9 percent) and Hillary Clinton (7 percent).

    Most Americans oppose sending troops to Ukraine

    This is the geriatric individual who may eventually be sending Americans to die for the most corrupt state in Europe’s ambitions to become a NATO member. NATO is a military alliance between 28 European countries, the United States, and Canada. Ukraine is not a member of NATO.

    Another insight from the study however is that 55 percent of Americans oppose sending US or NATO troops to Ukraine. Even if Americans favor sanctions on Russia, providing weapons to Ukraine, or accepting Ukrainian refugees, there is little support for fighting Russia in Ukraine.

    Some 79 percent believe humanitarian aid should be given to refugees from Ukraine, and 65 percent support allowing refugees from Ukraine into the United States.

    There is widespread support for sanctions imposed on Russia by the United States, and a majority of Americans think they could be tougher. Only 8 percent think Biden’s reaction to the war has been too tough, and 36 percent agreed that his response has been correct. While about half of Democrats say his response has been right,  most Republicans (66 percent) want to send weapons – not soldiers.

    Democrats are nevertheless more likely than Republicans to think the United States should have a major role in the conflict. Most Democrats also believe sanctions should be given priority over protecting the US economy (66 percent).

    Overall, the number of Americans who think their country should play a major role in the Ukraine war is down from the AP-NORC poll a month ago.

    In the event of a Russian attack on a NATO ally, 60 percent of Americans would support sending American troops, but right now, few Americans want to send troops to fight Russian forces.

    US economy a major concern for voters

    The struggling US economy which is heading into a recession, is the predominant issue for voters, with unchecked immigration in second place. The markets are not performing well, there is currently a 8,5 percent inflation rate and the US GDP over the first quarter has shrunk by 1,4 percent.

    The third concern is the explosion in violent crime, especially “mass killings” that involve four or more victims dead or wounded. In 2022, mass killings are already matching the record for Biden’s first year in office. “Defund the police” has been a feature of Democrat-ruled cities, with an unsurprising  outcome.

    These problems in the US are not about to go away with a war in Ukraine. They may be instead exacerbated by Biden’s involvement.
