When the 2024 election rolls around, there is little doubt that independent voters will play an oversized role in the outcome.
This is truly the fault of the two-party system in America, which has created a false political dichotomy in which our would-be elected officials will need to appeal to independent, undecided voters in order to turn the tides of any potential election.
And, when it comes to wooing these particular voters, Joe Biden is not doing a great job.
Independent voters doubt President Joe Biden’s mental fitness and believe he is too old to be president, a Harvard/Harris poll found over the weekend.
The poll asked respondents, “Is Joe Biden mentally fit to serve as President of the United States or do you have doubts about his mental fitness for office?”
Sixty-four percent of independents doubt Biden’s mental fitness, along with 79 percent of Republicans and 27 percent of Democrats. Overall, 58 percent of respondents said they doubt Biden’s mental ability.
It gets worse for “sleepy Joe”, too.
The poll also asked respondents, “Do you think Joe Biden is showing to be too old to be President or do you think he is showing to be fit to be president?”
Seventy-two percent of independents said Biden is too old to be president, along with 86 percent of Republicans and 38 percent of Democrats. Overall, 63 percent said he is too old to be president.
Biden is already the oldest President in American history, and would be a nigh-unfathomable 86 years old at the end his his potential second term.
