As the oldest serving president in U.S. history, Joe Biden’s age and moments of stumbling – both verbal and physical – have raised eyebrows among many Americans. Recent polls reflect concerns over his capability, and while he’s the 2024 Democratic frontrunner, his low approval ratings pose challenges for re-election.
Biden – Old and Confused
Participants in the poll used the terms “old” and “confused” to describe Biden, while they referred to Trump as “corrupt” and “dishonest.”
The Primary Descriptors That Emerged
These adjectives were the primary descriptors that emerged when individuals were asked to describe the prominent figures from the United States’ major political parties.
Trump – Corrupt and Crooked
According to the poll, Trump elicits words such as “corrupt” and “crooked” (according to 15 percent), along with “bad” and other generally negative comments.
“Liar and Dishonest”
Words like “liar” and “dishonest” were also used by 8 percent of those polled. Eight percent offered positive comments like “good.”
Biden’s Senior Moments Draw Scrutiny
Biden’s “senior moments” have become more pronounced in recent months, and voters are taking note.
US President Trips and Falls on Stage
In June, the US President tripped and fell to his hands and knees on stage while giving out diplomas at the U.S. Air Force Academy graduation ceremony in Colorado after he shook hands with cadets from the class of 2023.
Secret Service and Air Force officials rushed to the president to help him out.
Biden Stumbled When Boarding Air Force One
In July, Biden stumbled briefly while boarding Air Force One in Helsinki.
The U.S. president’s missteps are widely recorded, although many attribute Biden’s verbal errors to his speech impediment.
Is Biden Fit for Office?
Recent verbal and physical missteps have led many to question Biden’s cognitive health.
“Putin Is Losing the War in Iraq”
From saying that Russian President Valdimir Putin is “clearly losing the war in Iraq,” to closing out a speech on gun control with the words “God save the Queen, man,” Biden’s choice of words have drawn increased scrutiny in recent months.
Declaring National Emergency, in Practice Only
Most recently, when asked if he was prepared to declare a national emergency regarding climate change, Biden said he’d already declared the emergency before clarifying he’d done it “in practice,” which was regarded as the president’s recent gaffe.
Biden Still the Main Democratic Contender
This year, Biden will turn 81, making him the oldest US president to date, and he remains the leading Democratic prospect for the 2024 White House race.
Voters Worry About Age
Although he is only 3 years older than Trump, many voters have expressed concerns over his ability to continue his service to the country.
Biden Would Be 86 by the End of His Second Term
If re-elected, Biden would be 86 years old by the time he finishes his second term.
No Serious Democratic Challengers
While multiple Republican candidates are vying against Trump, Biden has yet to face any significant challengers from his party.
Low Approval Ratings
Despite being the only major contender on the Democratic side, Biden is grappling with low approval ratings. Just 40 percent of Americans approve of Biden’s work, according to the recent Reuters poll.
