The poll also shows DeSantis beating Biden by a similar margin, 48%-41%.

Biden is profoundly unpopular and is seen as too old and mentally and physically unable to do the job of president by majorities of Americans. Biden’s approve-disapprove is 36%-56%. 68% say Biden, 80 years old now, is too old for another term while 44% say the same for the 76-year-old Trump. Only 32 percent say Biden has the mental sharpness for the job of president, compared to 54 percent who say Trump does.
