Biden’s liabilities include concerns about his age – 81 – as well as strong criticism from a slice of his Democratic Party over his support of Israel’s war on Hamas militants.

Biden led by just three points among registered voters who said they were positive they would cast a ballot in November. In 2020, Biden beat Trump in the presidential election, with only two-thirds of eligible voters casting ballots.
