Biden 2024 In Trouble As Voters Voice Concerns

A recent survey found widespread concern over President Joe Biden’s age, with even the majority of those who voted for him in 2020 now saying the president is too old to effectively lead the country, the New York Times reported.

According to a New York Times/Siena College poll, 61 percent of Biden 2020 voters now say that he is “just too old” to be president, a shift that could pose a threat to the president’s reelection chances.

Among the respondents who voted for Biden in 2020, 19 percent said Biden’s age had become such a problem that he was no longer up to the job.

Concerns over Biden’s advanced age cut across race, gender, education, and age, further underscoring the president’s inability to convince members of his own party that he is still capable of serving in office.

Overall, 73 percent of all registered voters surveyed said Biden is too old to do the job effectively while 45 percent said he was too old to do the job at all.

The concern over his age has long dogged the president but has increased in recent weeks after the release of special counsel Robert Hur’s report that highlighted the president’s memory lapses and confusion.

Hur chose not to prosecute Biden for his mishandling of classified documents after leaving office, arguing that a jury would likely view the president as a “well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory.”

Hur also described Biden as displaying “diminished faculties” due to “advancing age.”

An ABC News/Ipsos poll conducted after Hur’s report was released found that 86 percent of respondents thought Biden was too old to serve another four years in office, including 73 percent of Democrats.

The ABC poll also found that 62 percent of voters believed presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, who is 77, was also too old to serve as president for another four years.
