A new CBS News poll has revealed that voters largely lack confidence in Joe Biden’s ability to withstand a second term in office. 

The poll found that only 34 percent of participants believe Biden will finish a second term, and only 16 percent believe that Biden is more physically capable of serving than President Donald Trump. 

Just 26 percent of those surveyed believe that only Biden has the mental & cognitive abilities to serve as president over Trump. 

In addition, 45 percent of participants noted that they are worse off now than before the pandemic. This highly affected respondents’ choices for who they support in the 2024 presidential election, being that those who are worse off than before the pandemic are much more likely to vote for President Trump. 

This coincides with the results of the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll, which indicated that 75 percent of voters believe Biden is too old to hold office. This included 63 percent of Democrats. Further, just 37 percent of respondents trust that Biden is mentally sharp enough for the job.

RSBN reported just last week that even liberal media outlets like The Atlantic, The New York Post, and the New York Times have addressed concerns that Biden should drop out of the 2024 race based on concerns regarding his age and cognition. 

Then, last Friday, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson was featured on Greg Kelly Reports and commented on the subject, noting, “It’s pretty obvious that he’s suffering from significant cognitive decline.”

He noted that this should not be seen as shameful but that the Biden administration should not be covering up for his shortcomings.
