According to an I&I/TIPP poll released Monday, 36 percent of respondents were ‘very concerned about mental health, with an additional 23 percent saying they were somewhat concerned. Comparatively, just 39% in total said they are either “not very concerned” (18%) or “not concerned at all” (21%) about his cognitive abilities. Another 2% said they aren’t sure about how concerned they are.

Pollsters noted that while the Democratic number is smaller, 39 percent is still ‘statistically high.’
