God save the campaign.
Two days after President Joe Biden mystified a crowd by concluding a meandering series of remarks with “God save the Queen,” a U.K. Daily Mail poll found that Biden’s age is becoming an albatross around his neck as he pursues a second term.
According to a new DailyMail.com/J.L. Partners survey of probable general election voters, 71 percent believe Biden is too elderly to lead the country.

49 percent of Democrats believe the gaffe-prone president is too elderly. The survey revealed that 94% of Republicans and 71% of independents concurred.
“There are few things that unite American voters, but there is one: the belief that Biden is too old to be president,” James Johnson, co-founder of J.L. Partners, which conducted the poll, said.
“Decisive margins across all age groups, ethnic groups, and political parties agree with the sentiment,” he said.
Johnson remarked that a considerable number of respondents to the survey said they are worse off since Biden became president.
“And worryingly for the current president, those most likely to say they are worse off under Biden’s policies include groups with disproportionate impact come an election: independent voters and 45-64 year olds,” he said.
The irony: those who yesterday fled from poverty, hunger, and monarchies, which were making them poor & slaves on their own land, have today elected a president, named #Biden who is saying: God Save the Queen – in a new land and from deep inside of his mind.@BillOReilly #Irland

Overall, 52 percent of respondents said they are worse off under Biden than they were prior to his inauguration.
From June 12 through June 15, 1,000 prospective general election electors were surveyed. The margin of error for the survey is 3.1 percentage points.
According to one expert, Biden must disprove his detractors or he will fail.
“The principal stumbling block to a second term for Joe Biden is the widespread perception that he is simply too old to serve effectively for a second term,” said Bill Galston, a former policy adviser to President Bill Clinton, according to the Guardian.
“He has to run a vigorous campaign, and there’s no time like the present to be out and about, and to begin pushing back against the perception that he’s going to run another basement campaign because he doesn’t have the energy to do anything else,” he said.
Norman Solomon, sponsor of the Step Aside Joe! campaign, said, “this Biden campaign is on a collision course with disaster. Nobody knows for sure, but there are so many signs from the polling, from his public appearances, from the footage that is catnip for the Fox News world that, literally and figuratively, Biden is stumbling.”
“Instead of being in denial and being like the crowd in the story The Emperor’s New Clothes, Democrats, including members of Congress and movers and shakers at the Democratic National Committee, still have an opportunity to step up. But instead, with very few exceptions, they’re simply fawning at the president,” he said.
