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.)
