The latest poll from I&I/TIPP released Monday revealed that overall, only 42.3 percent of the respondents believe President Joe Biden is “mentally sharp,” while over half (50.5 percent) believe he is not “mentally sharp.”
Only a small percentage (seven percent) were “not sure” where they stood on the president’s sharpness. However, there is a sharp division between the political parties.
Thirty-four percent of the respondents who identified as independent believe Biden is “mentally sharp,” along with only 13 percent of the Republicans. This is compared to the majority (74 percent) of Democrats who think Biden is “mentally sharp.”

In September, Foreign Relations Committee’s Ranking Member Sen. James Risch (R-ID), during his time to question Secretary of State Antony Blinken, asked who at the White House is in charge of making decisions after the president’s video feed was cut off mid-sentence, which many called “a puppeteer act.”
“There’s real questions right now as to who’s making the decisions,” Risch explained. “We know for a fact that the president of the United States is somewhat disadvantaged here, in that someone is calling shots. He can’t even speak without someone in the White House censoring it or signing off on it.”
