Polls: Almost 70% of voters believe Biden is too old for another term in office

According to a recent poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, President Joe Biden is currently holding a slight lead over former President Donald Trump. Interestingly, despite this lead, a significant majority of voters express concerns about Biden’s age.

According to a recent poll conducted from February 15 to February 19, it was discovered that 49 percent of registered voters are in favor of Biden, while 45 percent are backing Trump in a hypothetical general election scenario.

According to a recent survey, a majority of voters, 67 percent, believe that the current 81-year-old president is too old to effectively serve another term. Interestingly, 57 percent of voters held the same opinion about the 77-year-old former president, Trump. Only 34 percent of respondents expressed confidence in Biden’s mental fitness for a second term, while 48 percent believed that Trump is mentally fit.

Age is now a significant concern in the GOP and Democratic presidential primaries. Former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley, who is running against Trump, has criticized both candidates for their age. Similarly, Democratic Rep. Dean Phillips expressed his concerns about Biden’s age when he launched his challenge against him. Phillips believed that Biden’s age could make him unfit to run against the former president and win.

Special counsel Robert Hur recently released a report on President Biden’s handling of classified documents. The report concluded that criminal charges were not necessary, unlike in the case of Trump’s handling of classified documents. Hur described Biden as a “well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory.”

Both Trump and Biden have addressed concerns about their age and physical fitness. Biden has strongly refuted questions about his age, including during a heated press conference where he defended his memory in response to Hur’s report. Trump, on the other hand, responded to Haley’s criticisms by highlighting his cognitive abilities and stating that he feels as energetic as someone who is 35 years old.

According to the survey findings, a majority of voters expressed their support for providing Ukraine with additional military aid, despite the current delay in Congress. Out of the respondents, 56 percent were in favor of increasing aid, while 44 percent were opposed to it.

Voters were split on the issue of granting additional military aid to Israel during the conflict with Hamas, with a slight majority (48 percent) opposing it compared to 44 percent in support. The question of providing aid to our ally, the United States, has become more contentious as certain lawmakers have expressed concerns about the humanitarian consequences of the Israeli offensive in Gaza.

According to the survey, 1,421 registered voters nationwide were polled, and the margin of error was plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.
