A majority of Americans don’t think President Joe Biden is mentally or physically up to the job of leading the country and think someone else is pulling the strings behind the scenes, according to a new Rasmussen Reports survey.
Among likely US voters surveyed, 52 percent said they are not confident Biden is up to the most powerful job in the world while more than a third – 41 percent – said they are ‘not confident at all.’
Just 46 percent of respondents are confident in his mental and physical capabilities. Biden, 78, is the oldest president ever sworn into office.
There have been growing concerns among many political observers that Biden may not even be calling the shots in the White House.
“If I had to take a guess, I would say Barack Obama and Susan Rice are the chief decision makers in the White House,” said nationally-syndicated talk show host Todd Starnes. “And Jill Biden is the enforcer.”
And according to Rasmussen Reports, most Americans agree with Starnes.
Their poll found that 51 percent of likely voters believe other people are making decisions for Biden and only 39 percent think he’s in charge.
The national telephone and online survey finds that only 39% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Biden is really doing the job of president – that’s down from 47% in March. A majority of voter (51%) now say others are making decisions for Biden behind the scenes. Another 10% are not sure.
