(DCWatchdog.com) – The vast majority of Americans consider President Joe Biden too old to serve another White House term and doubt his “mental acuity,” a new public opinion poll has discovered.
[Please answer the question at the conclusion of this post as we value your feedback]
The new survey by pro-left pollsters YouGov and Yahoo News, whose results were released on Wednesday, shows that 82% of voters in the United States are at least partly concerned about the Democrat president’s mental prowess.
Only 17% of Americans are “not concerned at all” about the cognitive abilities and overall health of 80-year-old Joe Biden.
“How concerned are you about Joe Biden’s health and mental acuity?” the poll asked, as cited by Breitbart News.
Almost half of its respondents – or 44% – declared they were “very concerned,” while another 21% said they were “somewhat concerned.”
Another 17% stated they had “slight” worries about the president’s mental and cognitive fitness for the job.
Concerns about Biden’s mental acuity are even more substantial among independent voters. Two-thirds of that group – or 67% – reported they were either “very” worried or “somewhat” worried.
Among Democratic Party supporters, 50% said they were either “very” or “somewhat” concerned about the president’s mental and cognitive prowess, another 26% declared they were “slightly” concerned, whereas a quarter – 24% – had no worries on the issue.
“Is Biden too old for another term as president?” asked the Yahoo News and YouGov poll.
As part of the question, the survey pointed out that the Democrat occupant of the White House would be 82 at the start of a second term were he to win the 2024 election.
The survey established that almost two-thirds of adult Americans – or 64% – deem Biden “too old” for another term.
Those included 69% of independent voters and 48% of Democrats.
Conversely, 21% of those polled said Joe Biden wasn’t too old for reelection. Those included 9% of independents and 36% of Democrats.
Even so, according to the poll, slightly over half of Democrats – 52% – prefer Joe Biden to be the Democratic Party’s 2024 presidential nominee.
Only about a third of the party’s supporters would like the nomination to go to a different candidate.
The Yahoo News and YouGov poll comes after a recent survey by The Washington Post and ABC News similarly discovered that most US voters believed Biden didn’t have the “mental sharpness” and “physical health to serve effectively as president.”
In the earlier survey, 63% of Americans said Biden lacked the necessary “mental sharpness” to be in the White House, 32% said he didn’t, and 5% had no opinion.
Likewise, 62% declared they thought the president’s physical health wasn’t “good enough” to hold his post effectively, 33% thought the opposite, and 5% had no opinion.
