New Poll Reports Whopping 86% Of Americans Believe President Joe Biden Is ‘Too Old’ For Second Term

After the release of a recent Robert Hur Report , a new poll by ABC News/Ipsos (a leading market research and global polling company) reports that a whopping 86% of Americans believe President Joe Biden is “too old” for a second term.

On February 5, Special Counsel Robert K. Hur released a report speaking on President Joe Biden’s memory lapses, and numerous other subjects, like whether Americans believe Biden should have been charged with a crime for his handling of classified documents upon leaving the office as Vice President under Barack Obama .

In the ABC News and Ipsos poll conducted, 38% of Americans believe he should have been charged, while 34% say he shouldn’t, and 28% do not know. Meanwhile, on the legal issues that Trump is facing from his past presidency, the poll found that a clear majority of Americans (68%) believe he should not have immunity from criminal prosecution.

While looking at the numbers on whether our current president is “too old,” the poll found the majority of Americans (59%) believing that both Joe Biden and Donald Trump are indeed past their prime for another term as president.

The poll suggests that age will continue to be a factor in the 2024 election. In addition to the 59% believing Biden and Trump are “too old” for a second term, another 27% believe that only Biden (not Trump) is “too old” to sit in the White House for another four years.

According to the poll, only one in ten Americans (11%) believe that neither is “too old” to serve a second term. When breaking things down by political parties, the poll found that the majority of Republicans (62%) believe only Biden is “too old” while the majority of both Democrats (69%) and Independents (70%) believe that both men are “too old.”
