Most Voters Think Biden Will Be Too Old for a Second Term
Friday, March 03, 2023
Although more voters now think President Joe Biden is healthy enough to do the job, a majority agree that his age disqualifies the 80-year-old for a second term in the White House.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 30% of Likely U.S. Voters are Very Confident that Biden is physically and mentally up to the job of being President of the United States. Another 21% say they are Somewhat Confident in Biden’s capability, while 10% are Not Very Confident and 37% are Not At All Confident. These findings are a clear improvement from October 2021, when 50% were Not At All Confident in Biden’s ability to do the job. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on February 26-28, 2023 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research.
