Age Concerns Plague Biden Following Special Counsel's Report: Poll Reveals Public Perception

 

A recent ABC News/Ipsos poll has shed light on growing concerns over President Biden's age following the release of a special counsel's report detailing his lack of recall. The poll, conducted in the wake of the report, found that a staggering 86 percent of Americans believe Biden, at 81 years old, is too old to serve in office.

 

Biden's status as the oldest president to run for office has intensified scrutiny over his ability to lead, especially when compared to his likely GOP opponent in the 2024 election, former President Trump, who is 77 years old. Interestingly, the poll also revealed that 59 percent of Americans consider both Biden and Trump to be too old for the presidency.

 

The special counsel's report, authored by Robert Hur, painted a picture of Biden as a "well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory," reigniting concerns about his age and cognitive abilities. This portrayal has once again brought the issue of age to the forefront of Biden's reelection campaign.

 

This latest poll reflects a trend seen in previous surveys, indicating that voters view Biden's age as a significant factor in his ability to serve. In September, a similar poll conducted by ABC News/Washington Post showed that 74 percent of Americans believed Biden was too old for another presidential term, while 49 percent held the same view about Trump.

 

Aside from age-related concerns, the poll also delved into public opinion on Biden's handling of classified documents and Trump's legal troubles. While opinions were divided on whether Biden should have been charged for his handling of classified documents after leaving office, a majority of Americans (66 percent) believe that Trump should not be immune to criminal prosecution for actions taken during his presidency.

 

Trump's legal team has been advocating for immunity from prosecution in his federal January 6 case, a stance that was rejected by an appeals court, prompting the matter to be sent to the Supreme Court.

 

Conducted from February 9 to 10, the ABC News/Ipsos poll surveyed 528 adults aged 18 or older and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points. As the political landscape continues to evolve, these poll results offer valuable insights into the public perception of key issues surrounding Biden's presidency and the upcoming election.

WSJ article has Harris stating 'she's ready to lead the county, if Biden can't', and actually stated that, before the lack of memory report was released.   hmm ... maybe a heads up of what's to come

In politics, timing is important.

 

The key question now is: What's the right time for Biden to make his not-running-again announcement and for an instantly electable Dem to be announced as the new contender. (Not the current Veep obviously, she's already more than embarrassing enough).

I was only talking about Biden.. which the post was referring to.

Can't talk about Biden without talking about Trump.  Regardless of how senile you think he is, most Americans would still prefer him over Trump.  Now if the Republicans were to put up someone else....then we might have a choice.

The Brains-Trust of The Democratic Party believes that Biden is The Right Man to compete against Trump ( - because Biden can run on his record for the past 4 years). 

 

  -  If Trump were not to be the Republican-Candidate (for whatever reason), then I'm sure that The Brains-Trust would consider changing their Election-Plan.

 

And since it is a staple of Trump's playbook to delay-delay-delay in the court-cases against him, almost certainly he will be the Candidate for The Republican Party.

John Bolton: Trump Is a Putin-Loving Moron Who Thought Finland Was Part of Russia

Tillerson Publicly Confirms Trump Is Basically a Moron

“A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution.  DT

Trump’s false or misleading claims total 30,573 over 4 years

So you are really Trump? amazing

I'm not a Trump supporter but since even CNN can actually have several stories about Biden's let's say issues/ problems there is no reason it can't be done here sometime. It's always the same six people it seems. Never ending. Boring. It's important to discuss an 81 year old man who has been having absolutely worse cognitive issues as the years progress and who wants to be the President of the USA until Jan 2025.  What solution to this will actually be the biggest issue in politics in the next three months or so. No one else but a better choice should be the alternative topic. Not DT.
