Majority Of Americans Believe Biden And Trump Unfit For Another Term: Survey

55% of US adults see Biden as unfit, while 53% say the same about Trump, according to a Yahoo! News survey.

Most Americans believe that President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump are not “fit to serve another term” in the White House.

What Happened: According to a survey conducted by Yahoo! News, 55% of U.S. adults believe Biden is unfit for the presidency, and 53% said the same for Trump.

“When asked for their reasons, 20% of Americans said Biden, 80, is “incompetent,” 12% said he is “too old,” 10% said he is “corrupt,” 9% said he is “doing a bad job” and 3% said he is “dangerous,” said the Yahoo! survey.

The survey showed that more than 21% of those surveyed said Trump, 77, is “dangerous,” 17% said he is “corrupt,” 6% said he is “incompetent,” 5% said “he did a bad job during his first term” and 2% said he is “too old.”

Only 36% of respondents consider Trump, the current GOP front-runner, fit for another term as president, and 27% hold the same view for Biden. According to the survey, support for the candidates broadly corresponded with party alignment.

In a hypothetical rematch of the 2020 election, 47% of registered voters said they would support Biden, while 43% would favor Trump. Six percent said they were unsure of which candidate they would support, and 4% said they would vote for someone else.

According to the survey, Biden’s job approval rate among registered voters is at 40%, the same percentage as those who “strongly disapprove” of him. More than half of registered voters — 54%, to be exact— disapprove of the job the president is doing.

Furthermore, 53% of registered Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents said they want Biden as the Democratic nominee, while 35% say they would rather have someone else lead the party. 

“However, 69% said they would back the president in their state’s primary or caucus, 7% said they would back Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and 5% said they would vote for Marianne Williamson. Another 17% said they needed clarification,” said the Yahoo! survey.

If Trump is convicted of a severe crime, 60% of respondents said he should withdraw from the presidential race, while 27% said he should not. 

An overwhelming 62% of Americans also asserted that, if found guilty, Trump should not be permitted to serve as president again, while only 24% said he should.
