Democrat Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman continues to prove he is unfit to form coherent sentences following the stroke he suffered in May and continues to lose support as the midterms are just days away. According to a recent poll, Fetterman has fallen behind his GOP opponent, Dr. Mehmet Oz, by two points.
On Wednesday evening, Fetterman was speaking to a crowd of supporters when he suddenly stopped forming coherent sentences and began talking about his high school football career.
“I think that everyone that ever plays, ah… football in, in high school was, ya know, at a- kind of like a trade out kind of football camp and, uh, there wasn’t, wasn’t any interest I have come play here, you know,” Fetterman rambled.
Meanwhile, audience members could be heard shouting as he began to lose his train of thought.

Earlier that day, Fetterman had spoken at the Cumberland County Democrat headquarters in Pennsylvania, where he yelled nonsense at his supporters.
Roughly translated, he said, “Eirahidurund if you, you know, have any stressed kind of relationships with folks, friends, family, coming up later this month at thankscoming. Uhh, anyway…”

Last Tuesday, Fetterman and Oz faced off in a Senate debate.
Fetterman opened the debate with an embarrassing gaffe, saying, “Hello, good night, everybody.” during his introductory statement.

Oz also blasted Fetterman, saying, “John Fetterman thinks minimum wage is his weekly allowance from his parents.”
Afterward, 50% of voters said that Fetterman’s performance in this debate worsened their opinion of the Democratic candidate, and 62% of those surveyed said Oz won the debate.
On Thursday, Susquehanna Polling and Research survey revealed that Dr. Oz is leading the Senate race 48 to 46 percent, with 4 percent of those surveyed being undecided in the days leading up to the midterm elections. This survey was completed between October 28 and November 1.
The poll’s executive director Spencer Kimball reported on the survey, saying, “Of those who say they have heard, seen, or read a lot about the debate, Oz leads Fetterman 55% to 41%. Among those who have heard, seen, or read only a little or nothing about the debate, Fetterman leads 56% to 28%.”
