Biden Election Hopes Dwindle: Bipartisan Concern About His Age

President Joe Biden got bad news this week, as yet another poll revealed that most voters believe he will be "too old" for a second term.

A Rasmussen Reports survey recently revealed that Biden should just go ahead and retire.

"The survey showed likely voters demonstrating waning confidence in Biden’s physical and mental ability to serve as president," reports Breitbart. "While 51 percent said they are at least 'somewhat confident' that he is physically and mentally up to the job as commander-in-chief, only 30 percent of those are 'very confident.' Further, 47 percent expressed little confidence, and of those, 37 percent said they are 'not confident at all.'"

"The survey also found a plurality, 48 percent, expressing the belief that others are making decisions for Biden behind the scenes, rather than the president actually doing the job of president himself. Just 44 percent believe he is 'really doing the job as president,'" reports Breitbart.

The survey asked respondents how they would feel about Biden’s age at the end of a second term should he decide to run.

Biden would be 86 years old when his second term ended. A shocking fifty-nine percent said that is "too old" to be president.

"There is bipartisan consensus on that as well, as 52 percent of Democrats, 71 percent of Republicans, and 54 percent of independents agree that 86 is too old to be president," reports Breitbart.

Biden is currently 80 years old, and will turn 81 in November.

Former President Donald Trump, who could likely go head-to-head with Biden again, is 76 years old, turning 77 this summer.
