I&I/TIPP Poll: 48% Say They're 'Not Confident' In Biden As Commander In Chief

Confidence in President Biden's leadership as an effective Commander-in-Chief

Terry Jones

This is the last of three parts from the I&I/TIPP Poll on President Joe Biden's leadership. The first two parts can be found here, here, and here.

One of the primary constitutional duties of an American president is to be commander in chief of U.S. military forces. Yet, after just 10 months of President Joe Biden, Americans lack confidence that our 79-year-old commander in chief is up to the challenge of leading the U.S. in the event of a military threat.

The response is sure to worry Democrats, given the beleaguered Biden administration's recent sharp decline in favorability. Overall, among those responding, a plurality of 48% said they were "not confident" that Biden would be effective as commander in chief during a military emergency, while 45% said they were confident.
