Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is clearly hiding. He has not held a press conference or any media related event in almost 90 days.
And voters have taken notice.
A new poll by the Restoration PAC found that voters in the key swing state of Michigan are unsure of Biden’s ability to “mentally and physically” handle the duties of the presidency.
Voters in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania were asked, “Do you believe Joe Biden is fully up the task mentally and physically to handle the duties of president of the United States?”
Just over 50 percent of voters said “yes.”
However, 40.2 percent said “no,” and another 9.5 percent indicated that they were “undecided” on the matter.
In Pennsylvania, only 48.7 percent said Biden was up to the task both mentally and physically, compared to 45 percent who said “no” and 6.3 percent who remained unsure.
In Wisconsin, 50 percent of respondents expressed confidence in Biden, while 42.2 percent said “no” and 7.8 percent remained undecided.
Those three swing states could arguably determine who wins November's presidential election.

The results come as the Biden campaign continues in limiting the former vice president’s appearances, thereby minimizing the number of verbal flubs, freezes, and controversial remarks.
Biden came under fire on Thursday after falsely stating that the coronavirus had killed 120 million people — right before a live stream of his event in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, appeared to glitch out.
There have been 495,020 coronavirus-related deaths worldwide, according to the Johns Hopkins database’s Saturday morning results.
Biden also set off a political firestorm last month after stating that black Americans “ain’t black” if they are still deciding between supporting him or Trump.
It was rumored that Trump questioned Biden’s mental health in a conversation with aides, purportedly suggesting that the former vice president would be unable to pass the cognitive exam he underwent two years ago.
This comes after a report from The Hill's Joe Concha revealed that Democrats are getting worried that Biden may be losing his "mental acuity" and can't handle media attacks like President Trump does.
As the Western Journal noted, Concha told “Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy that “a lot of Democrats” have expressed complaints about Biden’s “mental acuity.”
“A lot of Democrats will tell you, at least privately, that he does not have the mental acuity that he even had a couple of years ago and this is a candidate that simply would not able to withstand the type of press conferences that the current president has, as far as them going on for an hour, an hour and a half, taking questions with multiple outlets with no ground rules attached,” Concha said.
Concha said Biden is doing some interviews and online forums, but they are very selective and often do not have any reporters present to ask questions.
“It’s a lot easier … to have, say, a handpicked interview, where you have ground rules for interviews, with certain outlets that may be friendly to your candidate, as opposed to having a press conference which Mr. Biden has not done for 80 days,” Concha explained.
