(ConservativeSense.com) – The results of a new poll that was released on Sunday show that most Americans don’t believe President Joe Biden will be able to make it all the way through a second term in office if he wins again.
The survey was conducted online by Harvard Caps/Harris between May 17-18, polling 2,004 Americans.
The recent poll showed that 61% of Americans, in general, believe that if Biden wins a second term, Vice President Kamala Harris will most likely take over for him at some point.
The number among Democrats was 35%, while unsurprisingly much higher among Republicans, 82% of whom said they don’t believe Biden will make it all the way through a second term if he wins in 2024.
The survey also asked questions about Biden’s mental capacity, a question that’s been raised quite a bit, through the 2020 election as well as throughout his first term in the White House. Trump and other Republicans have repeatedly called for mental aptitude tests, and GOP candidate Nikki Haley believes Washington, D.C., needs some younger blood in office.
According to the survey, 57% of Americans have doubts about the president’s mental aptitude. 65% believe Biden is too old to serve a second term.
Biden, who’s now 80, addressed these concerns, saying he respects people for “taking a hard look” at his age when considering their vote, that he would do the same, and that it was something he was also thinking about before deciding to run in the 2020 election.
Of course, Trump, who is already 76, isn’t much younger than Biden. Many Republicans will most likely also consider the age of their nominee, and with candidates like Haley, 51, or the vastly more popular and even younger Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, 44, they will be weighing their options.
