Nearly 40 percent of voters believe presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has dementia.
Party line affiliation breakdown: 2-in-3 Republicans said they believed Biden did have dementia. And, 1-in-5 Democrats agreed that their candidate likely suffered from cognitive decline and memory impairment.
Rasmussen Reports reports:
Critics contend that Biden’s frequent gaffes and confusing statements suggest he has dementia. Sixty-one percent (61%) of all voters believe it is important for Biden to address the dementia issue publicly, with 41% who say it is Very Important. Thirty-six percent (36%) say it is not important for Biden to speak out on the issue, including 19% who feel it is Not at All Important.
It is important to note that Rasmussen Reports did not define “dementia” in its questions. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, dementia is “a usually progressive condition (such as Alzheimer’s disease) marked by the development of multiple cognitive deficits (such as memory impairment, aphasia and the inability to plan and initiate complex behavior).”
