Zogby Analytics reports a majority (55%) of likely voters surveyed thought it was more likely (much more and somewhat more likely combined) that Vice President Biden is in the early stages of dementia, while 45% thought it was less likely (much less and somewhat less likely combined).
Overall, subgroups who normally approve of Trump’s job as president, were the most likely to believe Biden could be suffering from dementia. Thus, majorities of Republicans (77% more likely/23% less likely) and Independents (56% more likely/44% less likely) thought Joe Biden had early-onset dementia; while nearly a third of Democrats (32% more likely/68% less likely) thought this was the case
At the same time, some important subgroups did not believe the vice president was exhibiting a declining mental capacity. While a majority of men (60% more likely/40% less likely) thought it this was likely, women (50% more likely/50% less likely) were less likely to think that the vice president was in the early stages of dementia.
There was also an inverse relationship in the data between age and the likelihood of voters believing Biden had early-onset dementia, for example; as the age of voters increased the likelihood of voters believing Biden was exhibiting early-onset dementia decreased. Younger voters aged 18-24 (60% more likely/40% less likely) and 18-29 (59% more likely/41% less likely) were more likely to believe Biden had dementia than older voters aged 65+ (50% more likely/50% less likely).
Likely voters living in medium size cities (61% more likely/39% less likely) were more likely to believe Biden had dementia than voters living in the suburbs (52% more likely/48% less likely) and large cities (55% more likely/45% less likely). Suburban women (49% more likely/51% less likely) did not think Biden was mentally slipping but men living in urban areas (62% more likely/38% less likely) believed so.
African Americans (43% more likely/58% less likely) were less likely than Hispanics (61% more likely/39% less likely) to think Biden was in the early stages of dementia.
The voters most likely to believe Biden was having cognitive issues were staunch Trump supporters; weekly Walmart Shoppers (64% more likely/36% less likely), weekly Amazon shoppers (67% more likely/34% less likely) and union voters (71% more likely/29% less likely).
During a March podcast with guest Andrew Santino, popular podcast host Joe Rogan blasted Joe Biden for his history of verbal gaffes and brain freezes.
Playing a clip of Biden botching the declaration of independence, Rogan said “you can’t be president!” and later joked “This should get you into a mental hospital. They should be like hey, Joe, are you alright?”
It’s like he has no brakes. His car is going down the hill it’s like “oh jeez I hit a f-n tree”
I hit the wall, f-it!
There it is, can’t remember the word creator, refers to God as “the thing.” (laughs) You know what I think? i have a different take on it.
(plays video of Biden, saying “you know the thing”)
Stop, pause. You can’t be President. Stop Pause. Listen. We can’t play any games here folks, this is a really old man who can’t talk. This is not a joke. Like, that right now, “you know the thing?” play that again. Play that again.
This should get you into a mental hospital. They should be like hey, Joe, are you alright?
(plays video of Biden, saying “We hold these truths to be self evident. all men are created by the…you know …you know the thing”)
He had 3 strokes while he was saying that.
