In a recent poll of US voters, more than half of respondents said they were very concerned about the cognitive health of US President Joe Biden.

Iran PressAmerica: The poll, conducted by NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ and released on Thursday, reflects broad dissatisfaction with the octogenarian's presumed position as the Democratic Party’s nominee for the 2024 presidential elections.

The poll mostly focused on the Republican Party’s presidential primary race but included two questions about Biden, the present head of state and presumed opponent of any GOP candidate who triumphs over their peers.

One asked voters: "How concerned would you be about Joe Biden’s cognitive health affecting his ability to serve another term as president effectively?"

Of those who responded, 52.21% said they were "very concerned" and another 22.1% said they were "somewhat concerned" about the 80-year-old leader’s cognitive health. Another 12.51% said they were "a little concerned" and 13.19% said they didn’t care at all about Biden’s cognitive health.

The other question about Biden was: "If Joe Biden is the Democratic nominee in 2024, would his age impact your decision about who to vote for?" To this, 40.17% said it would "strongly impact" their decision and another 18.84% said it would impact it somewhat. A little over 13% said it would slightly impact their decision, while 27.79% of respondents said Biden’s age wouldn’t affect their decision at all.

While many of the poll respondents fretted over Biden’s age, they also seemed nonplussed by the Republican options to oppose him, too. Separate questions about voters’ attitudes toward each GOP presidential primary candidate found that more were either opposed to the candidate or were unsure - including Trump. Still, a strong plurality, 44.2%, felt Trump posed the best chance of beating Biden in an election.

The margin of error for the poll was 3.1%.
