The latest NBC News poll shows that the majority of voters are concerned that President Biden does not have the mental or physical fitness to serve as President and Commander-in-Chief, the Washington Examiner reported.
The poll, conducted from June 16 to June 20, found that 68 percent of all respondents, including 43 percent of Democrats, have either major or moderate concerns about Biden’s physical and mental fitness while only 32 percent have either minor or no concerns.
Another 60 percent said they have major or moderate concerns about Biden’s ability to serve all four years of a second term.
If he is reelected next year, Biden will be 82 on inauguration day and 86 when he leaves office four years later.
But Biden’s potential challenger Donald Trump doesn’t fare much better, with the majority of respondents, 55 percent, saying they have major or moderate concerns about Trump’s mental and physical fitness for office while only 44 percent said they have only minor or no concerns.
If Trump is the GOP nominee and manages to defeat Biden next year, he would take the oath of office at 78, the same age Joe Biden was when he took office. Trump would leave office in January 2029 at the age of 82.
When asked if they were concerned that Donald Trump would be unable to serve all four years in office if he is elected in 2024, the majority, 58 percent, said they had major or moderate concerns while 42 percent said they had minor or no concerns.
The NBC News poll also shows that Donald Trump is still leading the rest of the Republican primary field with 51 percent support.
However, in a hypothetical general election, Biden leads Trump by 4 points, 49 percent to 45 percent while he ties Florida Governor Ron DeSantis at 47 percent.
