President Joe Biden faced a tough moment during his recent "60 Minutes" interview that directly asked him if he was sure he wanted to run for a second term.
Biden's response included both a yes and words about what he hopes to accomplish over four more years.

"Imagine if we were able to succeed in getting the Middle East put in place where we have normalization of relations. I think we can do that," Biden replied.
"Imagine what happens if we, in fact, unite all of Europe and Putin is finally put down where he cannot cause the kind of trouble he's been causing. We have enormous opportunities, enormous opportunities to make it a better world," Biden added.

The exchange comes after multiple polls have noted that the majority of American voters believe Biden is too old to serve a second term, including an August poll that included concerns from Democrats.
"An eye-popping 77% of Americans feel that President Biden is too old to effectively govern if he wins a second term in office, according to a new survey," the New York Post reported.
"Misgivings about the octogenarian’s age were shared across the board, with 89% of Republicans concerned about Biden’s age hindering a second term and 69% of Democrats feeling the same way, per an Associated Press-NORC poll," it continued.

The poll is higher than a May poll that expressed previous questions about Biden serving a second term.
"A new poll from Quinnipiac University found that 65% of registered voters believe Biden is too old to be an effective president for another four years as the nation gears up for the 2024 election," Fox News reported in May.
"Ninety percent of Republican voters believe Biden is too old to serve as president again, while 69% of independents think the octogenarian president’s age is too high," it noted.
The interview from "60 Minutes" asked the obvious but Biden's response won't make the concerns go away as the election nears in 2024 where he faces a potential rematch against former President Donald Trump.
