Donald Trump Jr: “Zero Chance” Only 50% “Not Confident” Biden Is Fit To Be President

Donald Trump Jr., appeared to mock the result of the recent Rasmussen Reports poll showing 50% of likely US voters “not very confident” or “not at all confident” that Democratic President Joe Biden “is physically and mentally up to the job of being President of the United States.”

Barely two months in office, Biden is already getting lukewarm reception from likely voters across the country who have started raising doubts on whether the Democratic chief executive has what it takes to do the job of a president. As majority of them expressed concern on whether he could do the job, a lesser 48% said they are “very” or “somewhat” confident of the capabilities of the Democratic president. 

Responding to the poll, the former president’s eldest son, tweeted: “ZERO chance it’s only 50%..,” Trump posted, quoting a story about the survey. “Only 50% are willing to say it out loud!”

The same survey found that only 34% of those surveyed were “very confident” in Biden’s ability to do the job of a president, compared to the 40% who are “not at all confident” with the Democrat chief executive  — who is also a  former vice president. 

“50% of Americans Say Biden Not ‘Physically, Mentally’ Fit for Presidency,” Rasmussen said said, retweeting several media stories pertaining to the poll. 

Meanwhile, the survey conducted between March 4-7, was scheduled for release just hours after the President, who has been known in the campaign trail as a “gaffe machine” had a hard time remembering the name of his Defense Secretary,  Lloyd Austin — or even the “outfit” that he runs — referring to the Pentagon.

The result of the poll also came as blunders of the new chief executive of forgetting where he is or what he is doing have started to pile up. 

In a hardware store in D.C. reporters were reduced to yelling questions at President Biden, who appeared confused and wandered off as his aides rushed to shoo the press away. 

At one time, Biden was also seen stopping mid-sentence, as he tried with difficulty to remember names — eventually asking “what the hell am I doing here?”

Last month, the Democratic president also admitted that he wakes up every morning and asks his wife, Jill Biden ”where the hell are we?”

Likely voters also concerned about his lack of press conference

Meanwhile, likely voters are also concerned that Biden has not held any press conference yet, almost 50 days in office — which is already the longest time that any contemporary sitting chief executive has deferred holding a solo press conference since taking office. 

The Rasmussen poll found 52% of likely voters were “concerned” that Biden has not held a press conference, including 37% who are “very concerned.” Another 24% said they were “not very concerned” and only 22% of likely voters said they were “not at all concerned” about Biden’s absence from the podium.

“More than six weeks since his inauguration, President Biden still hasn’t held his first White House press conference, and half of voters are worried about his ability to do the job,” the Rasmussen Reports summary said.

All of Biden’s 15 predecessors held a solo press conference within 33 days of taking office. Former president Barack Obama held one 20 days into the job and President Trump held his first solo media conference 27 days since he was inaugurated 45th president.

According to Rasmussen, only 37% of likely voters also expect President Biden to win re-election in 2024, and 30% expect that he will resign even before then. 

Rasmussen Reports polled 1,000 likely voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points and a 95% confidence level.
