Following the release of a special counsel’s report questioning the mental acuity of incumbent President Joe Biden, the gap between him and his potential re-election rival Donald Trump is not that great.

Details: According to the Reuters/Ipsos poll, Trump received the support of 37% of respondents, while Biden – 34%. At the same time, the error in the survey is 2.9%. Notably, a poll last month showed Trump leading by 6 percentage points.
In addition, about 10% of respondents said they planned to vote for other candidates, while 12% said they would not vote at all. Another 8% refused to answer.
The poll comes just days after special counsel Robert Goure released a 388-page report calling the president “an elderly man with a failing memory.”
It also revealed that one of the potential major political challenges facing Trump is the four pending criminal prosecutions against him.
One in four Republicans and about half of independents said they would not vote for Trump if a jury found him guilty of a felony.
An ABC News/Ipsos poll conducted after the release of the special counsel’s report found that 86% of Americans believe Biden is too old to remain in office.
At the same time, more than half – or 59% – believe that both Biden and Trump are too old.
This was preceded by: US Vice President Kamala Harris said in an interview last week, amid concerns about President Joe Biden’s age, that she is ready for a potential presidency.
