A new poll shows that 50% of possible voters report being “not very confident” or “not at all confident” that President Biden “is mentally and physically capable of the job of being President,” versus 48% who are “somewhat” or “very” confident.
The Rasmussen Reports poll was done March 4-7 and was released some time after President Biden had problems remembering the name of Lloyd Austin, the current Secretary of Defense.

Just 34% of potential voters reported being “very confident” in President Biden’s ability to be president. Versus 40% of voters who reported “not at all confident.”
The poll also revealed that 52% of voters were “somewhat concerned” (15%) or “very concerned” (37%) that President Biden has not had a press conference yet, fifty days after entering the White House — the longest time period of any president in almost 100 years.
According to the poll, only 37% of potential voters expect Joe Biden to win re-election, and 30% say he will leave office before that time. Most view him as being far-left, rather than a “moderate” that his team promised he would be.
