"Former President Trump, only three years younger at 77, rated more favorably when respondents were asked the same question, with 47 percent of those polled indicating Trump’s age is an issue," the Hill reported.
"One of Biden’s biggest struggles in the 2024 presidential race is his age. At 80 now, he would be 86 at the end of his next term if reelected," it continued.

"A majority of Americans, including nearly 70% of Democrats, think President Joe Biden is too old for another term as president, a new poll found," the Daily Wire noted regarding the Associated Press poll.
"Only 22% of voters said Biden is not too old for another presidential term," it added, emphasizing the low percentage of Americans favorable toward another Biden term.
Biden is already the nation's oldest serving president at the age of 80. However, many are also concerned at what would happen if he could not complete his term, leaving the White House in the hands of Vice President Kamala Harris.
The polls also come as rumors of additional Democratic primary candidates considering a 2024 run grow, expressing the party's concern with Biden running in a potential rematch against former President Donald Trump as the former president's poll number rise despite his multiple indictments.
