A new Quinnipiac poll finds what most Americans already suspect, and one thing that has many asking questions.
By a two-to-one margin, 65 percent to 32 percent, registered voters tell Quinnipiac that Joe Biden is “too old” to serve another term as president.
Biden’s age is a particularly vulnerable issue as those same voters overwhelmingly say, by a 59 percent to 36 percent margin, that former President Donald Trump is “not too old” to serve again.
“One candidate is 80, the other 76, but what a difference those four years make. Voters dispute the old saying that age is just a number, to the detriment of the President,” said said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy.
The news gets even worse for Biden, as voter also tell Quinnipiac they disapprove of Biden’s job performance by a crushing 38 percent to 57 percent margin.
A president’s approval rating generally predicts whether he will be re-elected.
But despite rock-bottom approval ratings and voters overwhelmingly saying he is not fit for office, Quinnipiac finds Biden is statistically tied with two possible Republican challengers for re-election.
The poll finds Biden edging Trump by a 48 percent to 46 percent margin.
While voters disapprove of Trump personally by a 56 percent to 40 percent margin, a gap of 16 percent, they also personally disapprove of Biden by a nearly identical 54 percent to 39 percent gap.
It also finds Florida Governor Ron DeSantis leading Biden by only one percent, 47 percent to 46 percent.
Thirty-four (34) percent of voters say they viewed DeSantis favorably, with 42 percent viewing him unfavorably, a gap of eight percent.
Many find it odd that, with massive majorities of Americans believing Biden is failing at his job and too old to serve, Biden would be statistically tied for re-election, and by nearly identical margins against two challengers viewed differently by voters.
The poll indicates Democrats are largely dissatisfied with Biden, but are not willing to vote for a Republican to get rid of him.
