Unsurprisingly, voters see their own candidate as healthier than their opponent. But Trump voters seem to have more confidence in him, with 71% seeing him as very healthy mentally and 53% saying he’s very healthy physically. For Biden, those numbers are just 43% and 28% respectively.
The first presidential debate is just two weeks away, and this will act as a proving ground for both candidates to demonstrate whether they have the mental acuity and physical stamina they need to run the country.

Data and methodology
Detailed tables and raw data are published here. Data is released under the Open Data Commons Attribution License (ODC-By) v1.0
Brandwatch Qriously uses river sampling and delivers market research questions to respondents via ads on mobile device apps. The proportion of respondents recruited in a particular app is determined by the demographic of its users, which allows for the collection of representative samples. There are no incentives meaning participants are more likely to provide candid and accurate responses. Qriously has successfully predicted nine major elections. It offers an accurate, fast, and reliable way to conduct market research, even within hard-to-reach groups and countries.
About the poll: 3,391 adults aged 18+ nationwide were surveyed from 10 September – 13 September, 2020. The size of the subsample of likely voters was 2,065. Data was weighted to be nationally representative in terms of age, gender, education, race, geographical region (census division), and NCHS urban/rural community type, using data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. The margin of error at the 95% confidence level, taking into account the effect of weighting, is +/- 2.1 percentage points for estimates from the full sample. For the subsample of likely voters it is +/- 2.5 percentage points. Sampling error can be larger for subsets of these samples. In addition to sampling error, all polls are subject to a range of other potential sources of error. When percentages do not sum to 100% this is due to the effect of rounding.
