A New Poll Reveals What Voters Think of Joe Biden's Age and Him Seeking Another Term

Last month, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley announced that she is running for president on the Republican ticket for 2024. Last year, she stated in an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network, she said that older politicians like President Joe Biden should have a cognitive test in order to stay in office. 

“What I’ll tell you is, rather than making this about a person, we seriously need to have a conversation that if you’re going to have anyone above a certain age in a position of power – whether it’s the House, whether it’s the Senate, whether it’s vice president – you should have some sort of cognitive test,” Haley said in the interview. 

“This shouldn’t be partisan. We should seriously be looking at the ages of the people that are running our country and understand if that’s what we want,” she added.

A Yahoo/YouGov poll released this week found that 68 percent of registered voters believe that Biden, who turned 80 in November, is too old for another term in office. This includes 48 percent of Democrats, 85 percent of Republicans, and 71 percent of Independents.

When asked if President Trump is too old to seek another term as president, only 45 percent of voters say “yes.”

Last month, Townhall covered how a new Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll showed that just 37 percent of Democrats say they want to see Biden seek a second term in office. Before last year’s midterm elections, this figure was 52 percent. AP noted in its write-up that Biden's age played a part in the results.

Follow-up interviews with the respondents showed that Democrat voters believe that Biden’s age is a liability for him, with many pointing out his coughing, his gait, and his gaffes point to the fact that the office should be held by someone younger. 

“I, honestly, think that he would be too old,” Sarah Overman, a 37-year-old Democrat voter from North Carolina, told AP. “We could use someone younger in the office.”
