Fifty-four percent of likely voters believe Joe Biden is capable of debating President Donald Trump, while 36% disagree, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll.
Here are how the results of the poll, released Tuesday, break down:
- 68% of voters believe it is important for President Donald Trump and Biden to hold one or more debates this fall.
- 56% believe it would hurt Biden’s candidacy if he refused to debate.
- 29% say it would have no impact on the election if Biden refused to debate Trump.
The poll, conducted July 9 and 12, surveyed 1,000 likely voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
