69% of Democrat Voters Say Biden Is Too Old for a 2nd Term, Poll Shows

Over two-thirds of Democrat voters say they think President Joe Biden is “too old” to run for a second term in the White House, a new poll has revealed.

The new survey was conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

The poll found that Republicans and Democrats shared one common belief about President Biden.

Voters on both sides of the aisle say Biden is far too old to be an effective leader in a second term.

That’s what 77 percent of respondents said regarding the 80-year-old commander-in-chief.

Rather unsurprisingly, 89 percent of Republicans say Biden is too old.

However, in devastating news for team Biden, 69 percent of Democrats shared this belief.

Respondents were also asked the same question about President Donald Trump, who is only a few years younger than Biden.

However, voters were less concerned about Trump’s age.

Overall, fifty-one percent of U.S. adults said Trump is too old to effectively serve a four-year term.

Democrats unsurprisingly outweighing Republicans in that belief about the GOP presidential candidate.

71 percent of Democrats said Trump is too old compared to just 28 percent of Republicans, respectively.

But the survey also found that it’s not just the presidency that voters have concerns about regarding age.

Americans of all stripes said want age limits imposed on Supreme Court justices and members of Congress.

Sixty-seven percent support mandating justices retire by a certain age.

68 percent said they are in favor of age limits for House and Senate candidates.

66 percent support an age ceiling for presidential candidates, the survey found.

“They’re too old overall,” a 28-year-old communications consultant said regarding the presidency.

They argued that older generations have “a sense of values and sense of the country and the world that just isn’t accurate anymore.

“It can be dangerous to have that view.”

The AP-NORC survey went beyond posing questions and presenting choices.

It also had a word association exercise, asking people to offer the first word or phrase that comes to mind at the mention of Trump or Biden.

The answers underscored how age is a particular drag for Biden across party lines, even when people aren’t prompted to think about that.

It also shows that Trump largely escapes the age concerns.

However, the exercise highlights how effective the corporate media’s anti-Trump campaign has been over the years.

Many respondents appear to parrot Democrat and media talking points, expressing disdain, if not disgust, for Trump.

In those visceral responses, 26% mentioned Biden’s age.

An additional 15% used words such as “slow” or “confused.”

One Republican even thought of “potato” when Biden’s name was mentioned.

Among Democrats, Biden’s age was mentioned upfront by 28%.

They preferred such age-related terms over “president,” “leader,” “strong” or “capable.”

One even called Biden “senile” after saying that they approve of his performance.

Only 3% in the survey came up with “confused” as the first descriptor for Trump.

Just 1% used “old” or something similar.

Some responded to Trump with words like “crooked.”

11 percent responded with “bad” and other generally negative terms after hearing Trump’s name.

However, 8 percent responded to Trump with “good” and other generally positive comments.
