(RepublicanNews.org) – According to a new Quinnipiac University poll, two-thirds of respondents said President Joe Biden is too old to serve another four-year term. Only slightly less than one-third said the President, now 80, was not too old.
If he were to win the presidency in 2024 and finish the term, Biden would be 86 years old.
Unsurprisingly, views are split among party lines. When Quinnipiac asked Republicans and independents, the majority of those said Biden is or would be too old. Republicans said “too old” by 90-8 percent, while independents split 69-28 percent.
Only 37 percent of poll-takers in this set said Trump would be too old to serve a second term.
Fifty-one percent of Democrats said Trump would be too old, while 42 percent said he would not be.
The Quinnipiac poll surveyed 1,819 adult Americans during the third week of May. Quinnipiac analyst Tim Malloy said voters don’t endorse “the old saying that age is just a number,” and that fact is “to the detriment of the President.”
Age is not the only worry Americans have about President Joe Biden. They are also concerned about his apparent mental health. Though the mainstream media usually ignores or finds an excuse for what it calls President Biden’s “gaffes,” observers can see that the President frequently appears not to know where he is, and appears to forget important facts.
A May 2023 Yahoo News/YouGov poll found a large majority of Americans are worried about Biden’s “health and mental acuity.” This included three out of four Democrats polled. Of those, about half were “somewhat” or “very” worried, while 26 percent said they were “slightly” concerned.
It is difficult to find a survey that does not find this high level of voter worry about Biden’s faculties and health. A focus group study funded by the Washington Post was published on May 29 showing deep voter worries about the President’s mental and physical fitness.
