Nearly three-fourths of respondents doubt President Joe Biden is qualified to serve after his weak debate performance last week, according to a new poll.

72% of registered voters do not think that Joe Biden, 81, has the mental and cognitive capacity to be president, while 27% do.

This information was obtained by CBS News and YouGov.

Registered Democrats believe Biden lacks the skills necessary for the job; this is a 10-point increase from the 29% who felt this way earlier in June to 41%.

By comparison, Donald Trump, the 78-year-old former president, is seen by half of registered voters as having the mental and cognitive capacity to serve as president, while 49% disagree.

On June 9, three weeks prior, CBS News and YouGov discovered that a greater number of voters who are registered to vote thought that Biden was qualified to serve as commander in chief.

At the time, 35% of respondents felt that Biden had the mental and cognitive capacity for the position, while 65% of respondents did not believe he was suitable to serve.

Based on a nationwide sample of 1,130 registered voters contacted between June 28 and 29, 2024, the survey was conducted.
