Overwhelming Majority Of Voters Think Biden Is Too Old

According to a recent poll, the vast majority of voters, including Democrats, believe that President Joe Biden is too old to serve another four years in office, ABC News reported.

An ABC/Ipsos poll conducted after the release of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s final report found that 86 percent of American adults think the 81-year-old Biden is too old to serve a second term, including 59 percent who also believe that Donald Trump is too old for another term and 27 percent who believe that only Biden is too old.

In total, 62 percent of voters think Donald Trump is too old, but that view was not shared by the majority of Republican respondents. Only 35 percent of Republicans think that at 77, Trump is too old.

However, 73 percent of Democrats believe that Joe Biden is too old. A staggering 91 percent of independent voters think President Biden is too old for another 4 years in office. The vast majority of independents, 71 percent, also think the same about Trump.

Concerns over age have dogged both Biden and Trump in recent months. In September, an ABC News/Washington Post poll found that 74 percent of respondents thought Biden was too old to serve a second term while 49 percent said the same about Trump.

But with the release of Hur’s final report on his investigation into Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, the question of Biden’s fitness for office has once again come to the forefront.

In his report, Hur concluded that Biden did illegally retain and share classified information as a private citizen but he opted not to prosecute the president, explaining that a jury would likely refuse to convict, believing that Biden was a “well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory.”

According to the ABC/Ipsos poll, 38 percent of respondents believe that the president should have been charged in the case while 34 percent agreed with Hur. Another 28 percent were not sure.

Unsurprisingly, the majority of Democrats, 68 percent, agreed with Hur’s decision not to prosecute the president while the majority of Republicans, 73 percent, disagreed.
