Nearly 9 out of 10 Americans — 86 percent — believe that Joe Biden is too old to serve another term as President, according to a recent ABC News/Ipsos poll. Although 59 percent of those polled believed that both Biden and former President Donald Trump are too old to serve as President, more than a quarter — 27 percent — believed that just Biden is too old compared to only 3 percent who felt the same way about Trump.
The poll comes amidst increasing concerns about Biden’s mental state and cognitive abilities following a series of gaffes and a damning report by special counsel Robert Hur regarding the current President’s mishandling of classified documents. Hur, who decided not to prosecute Biden, described him as an “elderly man with a poor memory” and revealed that he could not remember when his son Beau died or when his terms as Vice President began or ended.
Earlier this month, Biden also claimed to have met with French President François Mitterrand of France, who died in 1996, at the G7 Summit. Days later, he claimed to have spoken with German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, who died in 2017, at the same summit. Immediately following the release of Hur’s report, Biden confused the Mexican and Egyptian presidents.
