Fox News Poll Shows Americans Saying Biden Is More Mentally Sound Than Trump to Serve as President

More Americans say former Vice President Joe Biden has the mental clarity to be president versus Donald Trump, according to the latest Fox News poll released Sunday.

Despite the Trump campaign and the president himself repeatedly questioning the mental acuity of Biden, a larger percentage of U.S. adults say they believe the Democratic presidential candidate has the traits best suited for the job. A slight majority of likely voters—51 percent—told Fox News they believe Biden, 77, has the "mental soundness" to be president, compared to 47 percent who say the same about Trump, 74.

The president has repeatedly boasted about acing a cognitive test, and last his week campaign released an ad which showed Biden struggling to form sentences in public remarks. Trump offered the baseless accusation Saturday night that he believes Biden took performance enhancing drugs in order to get through the Democratic primary debates—an accusation he also leveled against Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential debates.
