A new poll shows that nearly two-thirds of voters believe President Biden to be too old to serve effectively a second term in the role of commander-in-chief.
Quinnipiac University’s latest poll found that 65% believe Biden will be too old for four more years to serve as president. The nation is gearing up for the election in 2024.
90% of Republican voters think Biden is old enough to be president again. Meanwhile, 69% of Independents believe the age of the octogenarian is too high.
80% of Republicans thought Biden was not too old to serve effectively another term in West Wing. 28% of Independents also agreed.
57% of Democrat Voters said that they do not believe Biden to be too old for another term as President; 41% said Biden was too old.
59% of voters thought that former President Trump could serve another term in office, whereas 36% believed the opposite.
The overwhelming majority of Republican voters (85%) believe that Trump is still young enough to serve another four-year presidential term. Just over half of Independent voters (55%), however, also believed the same.
15% of GOP voters think Trump is too old for a second term as president, while 39% of independents agree.
On the blue side, 51% said that Trump was too old to serve effectively another term as president, while only 42% thought the former president wasn’t too old.
Biden’s favorability is at 39%, and his unfavorability is 54%. 4% of Americans do not hear enough about President Obama.
Comparatively speaking, Trump has a favorability rating of 40% and an unfavorability rating of 56%, with only 2% saying they don’t hear enough about the former President.
Further, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ favorability rating is 34%, while former Vice President Mike Pence and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley are behind him with 25% and 19% respectively.
Biden is currently the oldest president to have served in history.
He would be able to finish his time at the White House in his golden years, at age 86.
In 2024, Trump could be back in the White House and the President will face a tough battle.
Quinnipiac’s poll showed that in a hypothetical 2024 head-to-head matchup between Biden and Trump, 48% of voters would vote for the current president, and 46% would vote for the former president.
A hypothetical Biden-DeSantis fight shows a similar story, with DeSantis having a slight advantage.
Biden, on the other hand, would have only 46% of the registered voters behind him.
Americans also take note of Biden’s old age. Several people in Iowa City told Fox News Digital that they think Biden’s older age merits a primary opponent.
One person commented, “I think that there are a lot of questions about his old age.” “I think some people would like to have a rival, particularly on both sides of politics.”
“I would personally like to see Democrats nominate someone else as well,” he added. “Somebody younger.”
Another student said she thinks “we need more young people” and that her “biggest thing is having a president that old is kind of unprecedented.”
“So, I don’t know. I think we should give it to young people at this time,” she continued.
“Yes, I think he needs one,” another student said. “I think he’s too old to be in office still, in my opinion.”
