Americans have a choice to make in November, as incumbent Republican President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden face off in the 2020 election.
The contest has already been a tumultuous one, with both candidates attempting to cast doubts on each other’s fitness for office – particularly as pertains to their mental health.
For Joe Biden, the concerns are fairly obvious: His campaign events have been peppered with gibberish, temper tantrums, and bizarre non-sequiturs.
A new poll has now indicated that the American people are growing worried about the mental fitness of not only Joe Biden, but also Donald Trump.
Most voters in six 2020 swing states do not consider either President Donald Trump or Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden mentally fit to be president, according to a new CNBC/Change Research poll.
The findings in the pivotal states of Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin were released Thursday amid a sustained push by the Trump campaign to portray Biden as incapable of handling the demands of office. Most respondents in those states, which will play a huge role in determining the presidential election winner, do not have confidence in Trump’s ability to take on the job, either.
A 51% majority said Trump is mentally unfit to be president, while 49% answered that he is fit to hold the job. A similar share, by a 52% to 48% margin, responded that Biden is mentally unfit to be president.
The two candidates have traded barbs over both mental and physical fitness during the course of the election, possibly contributing to these embarrassing poll results.
