Survey: 71% of Americans believe Joe Biden is TOO OLD for a second term
06/22/2023 // Laura Harris // Views

A survey conducted by the Daily Mail found that 71 percent of Americans believe incumbent President Joe Biden is too old to seek re-election for a second term.

The survey conducted by the Mail and JL Partners polled 1,000 Americans about their thoughts on the 80-year-old chief executive seeking re-election. It found that overall, only 14 percent believe that Biden can still run for a second term. In contrast, 71 percent believe that Biden is too old to spend another four years in the White House.

A demographic breakdown of the survey results showed the same sentiment of Biden being too old for re-election. Respondents aged 18 and up overwhelmingly deemed the president overage. Majority of White and Hispanic respondents deemed Biden too old, while 49 percent of Black respondents thought so.

The sentiment was the same along party lines, with 94 percent of Republicans saying he is too old for the job. Seventy-one percent of independents share the sentiment, while 49 percent of Democrats say Biden's age is definitely a factor.

"These statistics highlight a growing sentiment among the electorate that Biden's age may hinder his ability to lead effectively for another four years," the Mail noted.

In addition to concerns about his age, the survey also identified dissatisfaction with the president's performance in other areas. Fifty-two percent of voters said they feel worse off since Biden took office, while 37 percent said they feel better off.


Notably, this sentiment largely falls along party lines with 92 percent of Republicans feeling worse off and 72 percent of Democrats feeling better off. Independent voters, however, express a more negative sentiment, with 55 percent reporting that they feel worse off since January 2021.

Biden's age – and cognitive decline – is showing

James Johnson from J.L. Partners, the organization that conducted the survey, emphasized the significance of independent voters in the next presidential election, citing their role in securing Biden's victory in 2020 and their impact on the tight House of Representatives race in 2022.

"There are few things that unite American voters, but there is one: The belief that Biden is too old to be president," Johnson said. "Decisive margins across all age groups, ethnic groups and political parties agree with the sentiment. Though [Biden] managed to avoid his age becoming a pivotal issue in 2020, it looks set to be the defining hesitation in voters' minds next year."

Biden – already the oldest-sitting president in U.S. history – has acknowledged that his age can be a legitimate issue when voters head to the polling places come November 2024. Biden even joked about "being 110" years old at a June 16 event in Connecticut.

However, many could not help but express concern over Biden's mental faculties. During the same Connecticut event, the president concluded his speech with "God save the queen" – apparently a tribute to the late British monarch Elizabeth II, who died in September 2022.

Even Biden's rivals at the GOP took jabs at his declining cognitive function. Former President Donald Trump, 77, has repeatedly claimed his successor is suffering from dementia. Meanwhile, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has called for competency tests for candidates over the age of 75 – a requirement that could apply to both Trump and Biden.
