The impact of age and cognitive health concerns on Biden’s presidency

Age and cognitive health concerns have taken a center stage in the 2024 presidential race, with special counsel Robert Hur’s report on Joe Biden’s memory causing a stir among Democrats and Republicans alike. While Democrats accuse Hur of carrying out a partisan hit job by focusing on Biden’s cognitive abilities, Republicans see this as an opportunity to keep the spotlight on the age issue. With voters expressing worries about Biden’s cognitive health, the president has tried to address these concerns through a strong State of the Union address and ad blitz in swing states. The hearing following Hur’s report will be crucial to see how Democrats handle the situation – whether they downplay concerns or confront Hur’s findings.
