Poll/ Americans agree on Biden's age and think he is too old
American President Joe Biden has made the whole nation in one mind, although not in the way he would like.
A poll released yesterday shows widespread public belief that he is too old to be effective in a second term.
That's the result of The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll.
The AP reports in the poll that 77 percent said Biden is too old to be effective for another four years. Not only do 89 percent of Republicans say this, but 69 percent of Democrats feel the same way.
This view is shared by all age groups, not just young people.
The survey of 1,165 adults was conducted from August 10-14, 2023, using a NORC probability-based sample.
The margin of sampling error for all respondents is plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.
The clear message of the poll as determined by the AP report is that Americans are saying they are with the young woman, or at least someone younger than the 80-year-old Democrat Biden.
This is not the first time that Biden's age has been noticed by both the general public and target voters.
Biden is the oldest sitting president in US history, and if he is re-elected in 2024 and serves a full term, he will be 86 when he leaves office in 2029.
