OPINION | This article contains opinion that reflects the author's views.

Only 37% of voters would like to see President Joe Biden run again for a second term in 2024, according to a new Associated Press/NORC poll.

Biden, who is the oldest president in U.S. history at age 80, has been widely criticized for not being physically and mentally fit for the job.

Ross Truckey, a 35-year-old lawyer and voter from Michigan, said, “His age and possibly his mental acuity are not where I would want the leader of the country to be.”

He continued, “He, at times, appears to be an old man who is past his prime. Sometimes I feel a little bit of pity for the guy being pushed out in front of crowds.”

Sarah Overman, 37, a Democrat in North Carolina, said, “I, honestly, think that he would be too old. We could use someone younger in the office.”

According to a CNBC All-America Economic Survey, a majority of those surveyed did not want Biden to run again in 2024.

CNBC reported that “The survey found 61% of the public think Trump should not seek the presidency, compared with 30% who believe he should. And 70% say Biden should not run for a second term with just 19% supporting a run.”

The report continued, “Substantial numbers in each politicians’ own party prefer their names not be on the ballot, including 37% of Republicans who don’t want Trump to run along with 61% of independents and 88% of Democrats.”

“For Biden, 57% of Democrats say he shouldn’t stand for office in 2024, along with 66% of independents and 86% of Republicans.”

A NBC poll also found that a staggering 71% of Americans say the country is on the wrong track.

NBC host Chuck Todd said, “Asked to describe where America is headed in the next year, more than two-thirds use negative words and phrases: ‘downhill,’ ‘wrong track,’ ‘disaster,’ ‘hard times,’ and ‘uncertainty.’”

Even worse, the poll showed that only 34% of Americans believe Biden is “honest and trustworthy” and only 32% believe he has “the ability to handle a crisis.”

Biden’s lowest marks were related to his competence and health.

Only 31% of American believe Biden is competent and effective as president while 28% said he has the necessary mental and physical health to be president.

23% of poll respondents said he’s uniting the country.
