Amid ongoing debate about President Biden's mental fitness, ABC News' Jonathan Karl expresses doubts about Biden's ability to serve a second term, based on his recent interview.

ABC News' Jonathan Karl has cast a shadow over President Biden's political future, expressing grave concerns about the president's ability to serve a full second term based on his highly-anticipated interview with ABC News.

In an interview with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, Biden raised eyebrows when he expressed uncertainty about whether he had watched the CNN debate and refused to commit to taking a cognitive test. These actions, along with his remarks that he would be content with a hypothetical loss to former President Trump, have sparked further worries among Democrats.

Stephanopoulos himself has stated that he does not believe Biden can serve four more years in office, further fueling the debate about the president's mental fitness. Stephanopoulos' comments come after a video emerged of him expressing his belief on the streets of New York City.

"I don't think he can serve four more years," Stephanopoulos said in the video.

The White House has remained adamant that Biden intends to complete a full second term, with press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre reiterating this stance at a press briefing. However, Stephanopoulos has since clarified that his remarks were his personal opinion and not the official position of ABC News.

Karl, in reaction to the interview, expressed concerns that it would not alleviate the fears of "jittery Democrats" who believe Biden is not up to the task of running against Republican challenger Donald Trump.

"Look, Biden looked better and certainly more coherent than he looked during the debate, but there's nothing in this interview that is calming nerves of jittery Democrats who fear that Joe Biden is on a trajectory to lose this race, to lose to Donald Trump," Karl said.

Biden's interview has sparked a flurry of criticism from the media and Democrats, with many calling for him to withdraw from the 2024 race. The New York Times editorial board has been particularly vocal in its opposition, stating that "it is not clear that he has the mental acuity and stamina to lead the country."

Amid growing concerns, Democrats are increasingly divided over whether to support Biden in an upcoming general election. A recent poll conducted by Democracy for America revealed that a majority of Democrats believe Biden should not run for reelection in 2024.

Despite the concerns raised by Karl and others, the Biden campaign has not yet responded to requests for comment from Fox News Digital.
