Nearly half of all voters believe President Joe Biden could be replaced as the Democratic nominee in November’s presidential election, new polls show.
On Friday, a new Monmouth University poll found that 20 percent of voters believed it was very likely and another 28 percent believed it was somewhat likely that the incumbent president would end up not appearing on the ballot.
In follow-up interviews with pollsters, voters said Biden will be replaced because of his “age, physical health or mental abilities,” while some Republican-leaning voters said they believed Biden would be sidelined by his party.
The same poll found that only 32 percent of voters believed Biden had the physical and mental stamina to be president.
That number was 52 percent when Biden ran for president in 2020, but Democrats, independents and Republicans alike have lost confidence in the 81-year-old leader.

Forty-eight percent of independents had confidence in Biden’s physical and mental resilience in 2020, now that number is up to 20 percent.
The president’s numbers were always low among Republicans, but they have fallen from 14 percent to 2 percent.
More Americans today feel comfortable with former President Donald Trump’s physical and mental resilience, the survey found.
Overall, 51 percent said they believed Trump, 77, had the physical and mental capacity to be president.
That figure is an improvement over how Trump was perceived while he was in office during the summer of 2020.
At the time, 45 percent of American voters believed the Republican had the physical and mental capacity to be president.

The new Monmouth University poll found that only 32 percent of voters believe President Joe Biden has the physical and mental stamina to be president, while that number is 51 percent for the likely Republican nominee, the former president Donald Trump.
Trump’s surge is because there is greater confidence among Republicans, independents and even Democrats by a small number.
Currently, 90 percent of Republicans expressed confidence in Trump’s physical and mental capabilities.
That number stood at 88 percent in 2020.
The former president has gained more ground among independents, as 57 percent now express confidence in his physical and mental abilities, up from 42 percent in 2020.
Four years ago, 10 percent of Democrats, although Trump had physical and mental resistance, that number is now up to 12 percent.
About a third of Americans currently believe Trump could be replaced as the Republican nominee.
He is still competing for the nomination against the former UN ambassador. Nikki Haley, although leading in the delegate count, has won elections in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada and has a significant lead in the polls in the next group of states.
However, 10 percent of respondents said it was very likely and another 22 percent said it was somewhat likely that Trump would be replaced on the ballot.
Most voters interviewed pointed to Trump’s legal problems, while only a few said his health could get him kicked out of the Republican nomination.
