Only 34% of voters believe Biden would make it to end of a second term

Just 34% of registered voters in the United States think President Joe Biden would make it to the end of a second term if reelected in 2024, according to a new poll — including 65% of Democrats.

By contrast, a slim majority of voters, 55%, think former President Donald Trump would make it to the end of his second term should he win the 2024 presidential election. Eighty-two percent of Republicans agree that Trump would finish a second term.

The CBS News-YouGov poll surveyed a sample of 4,002 registered voters on the various hot-button issues facing the country as election season is underway.

Just 33% of voters who participated in the poll believe Biden has the mental and cognitive health to serve as president, compared to 51% for Trump.


The poll also found that if the 2024 election came down to a Trump-Biden rematch, the electorate would be almost evenly split, with 50% of voters opting for Trump, compared to 49% for Biden. This result follows the national polling average.

Of those who would support Biden, 51% said their motivation to do so is more about opposing Trump. Meanwhile, 61% of Trump voters are motivated by their support for Trump as opposed to opposition to Biden.

Biden’s age has come into question since he took office in 2021, when he became the oldest president to take office in United States history.


Earlier this month, Biden claimed he visited ground zero of the 9/11 terrorist attacks the day after they occurred — records show he did not visit until nine days after the attacks.
