“Eighteen percent of Democrats polled were not sure if Biden was too old for another term. Already the oldest president in US history, Biden would be 86 by the end of his second term if he were to win re-election in 2024," the New York Post reported.
"A majority of independents, 71%, also said that age 82 was too old to start a second term as president, which is how old Biden would be on his second Inauguration Day. Biden has not formally declared that he will run for a second term but he has said on several occasions that he intends to seek re-election," it added.

The poll adds to similar results from an Associated Press poll a month ago that found only 37% of Democrats support Biden for a second term.
“While Biden has trumpeted his legislative victories and ability to govern, the poll suggests relatively few U.S. adults give him high marks on either," the AP wrote.
"Follow-up interviews with poll respondents suggest that many believe the 80-year-old’s age is a liability, with people focused on his coughing, his gait, his gaffes, and the possibility that the world’s most stressful job would be better suited for someone younger,” it added.

Biden would be 82 years old at the time he would potentially start a second term, ending his time in office at 86 years of age.
The president is already the nation's oldest sitting president, with ongoing gaffes giving many Americans concerns about his ability to continue leading the nation.
The concerns were increased as the White House recently revealed that the president had a cancerous lesion removed from his chest last month.
The 2024 election might be the focus of the president but many are hoping for another leader in the days ahead.
