Will President Biden make it to the end of his term? The question has been asked frequently throughout his time in the White House and it seems Americans are growing less confident in Biden’s ability to make it a full term as president.
According to a new poll, one in five Americans doesn’t believe the 79-year-old will finish his term.
The Daily Wire reports:
“[A]fter a year of record inflation and gasoline price hikes, devastating COVID lockdowns, a surge of illegal immigration, the botched departure from Afghanistan, and growing questions over the 79-year-old president’s mental fitness, a surprising number of Americans now think Biden won’t last even another two and a half years in office, according to the latest I&I/TIPP Poll,” Issues & Insights reported.
When asked “In your opinion, how likely is it that Joe Biden will complete his first term in office?” a large majority (71%) said it’s likely. But 21% said it was “not likely” he’ll finish his term.
“A closer look at the data provides little comfort for Biden’s own pollsters and political advisers,” Issues Insights reported. “Just 45% of those responding said it was ‘very likely’ Biden would last. Some 25% said it was only ‘somewhat likely,’ hardly a vote of confidence in Biden’s presidential future. Another 8% said they are ‘not sure.’”
The poll’s results come as reports emerged that some lawmakers are growing increasingly concerned about senior California Senator Dianne Feinstein’s rapidly declining mental state.
“When a California Democrat in Congress recently engaged in an extended conversation with Sen. Dianne Feinstein, they prepared for a rigorous policy discussion like those they’d had with her many times over the last 15 years,” The San Francisco Chronicle reported. “Instead, the lawmaker said, they had to reintroduce themselves to Feinstein multiple times during an interaction that lasted several hours.”
