Only 54% of Americans Think Joe Biden Is Capable of Debating President Trump

The mainstream media may be trying to hide Biden’s constant mind slips and confusing sentences, but voters are still aware of the frightening health condition of the Democrat frontrunner, leading to a mere 54% of voters believing Biden is capable of debating President Trump, according to new data from Rasmussen Reports.

“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters think Biden is capable of debating the president. Thirty-six percent (36%) disagree and say he is not capable of such a debate. Another 11% are not sure,” according to the report.

Commentators have long speculated the three standard debates scheduled for the nominees will hurt Biden’s support greatly — his campaign may recognize this because they rejected Trump’s proposal for more debates.

There is also a push to have Biden not debate altogether with a piece from the New York Times saying unless Trump’s tax returns are provided and a live fact-checker is present, the former Vice President should sit them out — of course the columnist doesn’t mention Biden’s inability to speak coherently which is certainly the underlying reason for the proposal.

Further, Rasmussen reports “38% of all voters, including 20% of Democrats, believe Biden is suffering from some form of dementia. Sixty-one percent (61%) think it is important for him to address the dementia issue publicly.”

So while shame may be thrown at any public figure who question Biden’s health, it seems a significant chunk of voters are curious and unconfident in his abilities, too.

New York’s Democratic party is battling over the constitutionality of voter laws. On December 9, the New York City Council will vote on a law to allow green-card holders and residents with work permits to vote in municipal elections.

“Around 808,000 New York City residents who have work permits or are lawful permanent residents would be eligible to vote under the legislation, which has the support of 34 of 51 council members, a veto-proof majority” reports Fox News.

“It’s important for the Democratic Party to look at New York City and see that when voting rights are being attacked, we are expanding voter participation,” Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, a sponsor of the bill and Democrat who represents the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, told the New York Times. Rodriguez immigrated from the Dominican Republic and became a U.S. citizen in 2000.

Fox News reports:

Laura Wood, Chief Democracy Officer for the mayor’s office, said at a hearing on the bill in September that the law could violate the New York State Constitution, which states that voters must be U.S. citizens age 18 or older.

Mayor Bill de Blasio indicated he could veto the bill following the September hearing.
“We’ve done everything that we could possibly get our hands on to help immigrant New Yorkers—including undocumented folks—but…I don’t believe it is legal,” de Blasio told WNYC radio at the time.

Mayor-elect Eric Adams, however, submitted testimony to the September hearing in favor of the bill. “In a democracy, nothing is more fundamental than the right to vote and to say who represents you and your community in elected office…Currently, almost one million New Yorkers are denied this foundational right.”

The legislation was first introduced two years ago, but had not yet gained traction due to the legal concerns.
