According to Democratic strategist James Carville, Democrats should reportedly be concerned about President Biden’s poll results because some of them show him losing other GOP candidates in head-to-head comparisons.
Additionally, polls constantly suggest that many voters are worried about Biden’s age and his suitability for the office of president.
“You can’t look at this and not say that you’re concerned. For me to come on television and say I don’t find this alarming or troubling at all would be stupid. I wouldn’t do that.” Carville said during a recent interview on CNN.
“To say the least, the polls were not great. And it tells us that, you know, voters are expressing some apprehension here. It’s pretty clear. There’s not much else you can say when you look at them.”he continued
“I guess the best thing you could say is, if anything, they’re worse for [former President] Trump,” he concluded.
Biden is currently 80 years old, will turn 81 in November, and would be 86 when his second term ends.
According to a CNN poll issued on Thursday, 46% of registered voters believe that any Republican presidential candidate would be superior to Biden.
With 67 percent of Democratic-aligned voters saying they would prefer a different nominee than Biden, the president did not fare much better.
The study indicated that many people are “seriously concerned” about the president’s age, with 73 percent of Americans and 56 percent of Democrats expressing this fear.
Trump is 77 years old, but the issues with Biden’s age haven’t surfaced in the same way in polls about Trump.
Despite the president’s personal flaws, the former president is currently facing a number of indictments, and some Republicans are concerned that this could make him a poor opponent for Biden in a general election race.
According to the CNN survey, Trump had a one-point advantage against Biden. Biden was behind former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie by 2 points, former Vice President Mike Pence by 6 points, and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley by 6 points in the poll.
