A number of US voters have raised concerns over President Joe Biden’s mental health since he has been in power after beating Donald Trump in the American election last year.

Results of a recent poll run by Politico/ Morning Consult showed at least 50 per cent of participants believe the 79-year-old is not “in good mental health”.

One respondent said: “Biden is definitely slow on a lot of things,” and “I’m not sure if it is because of his age, or if he’s still going after 30 decades ago”.

Biden, who turned 79 on Saturday, is the oldest serving president in US history and will be almost 82 when he applies for his second candidacy in 2024.

The president was spotted falling asleep earlier this month when he attended a Cop26 session in Glasgow during a speech by a public speaker with a disability.

Republican pollster Neil Newhouse told Politico: “When you watch Biden, you get a sense that he’s just missing a beat, that he’s not what he once was, [and] voters are picking up on it.”

Another respondent casted doubts of Biden running for a second term in 2024 saying: “If he’s alive. I’m just saying.”

Joe Biden has run for president three times, he launched his first bid in 1987.
