Joe Biden officially became the Democratic Party's candidate for the office of President of the United States in August 2020. At noon on January 20, 2021, he was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. Now, he will fight for a second cadency, probably against the Republic's candidate, Donald Trump. Elections are scheduled for November 5, 2024.

Poll: Both candidates are too old

According to the ABC News/Ipsos Knowledge Panel pool, "86 percent of Americans think Joe Biden is too old for a second presidential cadency". Recall the Democratic candidate is 81 years old.

The same question has been asked of Republican candidate Donald Trump. In this case, 62 percent of voters believe Trump is too old to hold the most important position in the country. Trump is now 77 years old.

The survey also examined how the electorate of both parties viewed their candidates. The difference is significant. 73 percent of Democrats view Biden as too old for service, whereas only 35% of Republicans hold the same view about Trump. Among independents, a striking 91% consider Biden too old for the role, with 71% expressing similar sentiments about Trump.

More and more Americans think both candidates are too old

As reported by ABC News there is an upward trend in the age rating of both candidates. The station cites a poll from September, where 74% of Americans said Biden was too old to serve another term as president, while 49% said the same about Trump.
