According to a survey done by the New York Times/Siena College, the majority of his voters think that he is too old to be an effective president. Hence, the age issue can influence his re-election bid. 

The Biggest Weakness of Joe Biden

To become an ideal president, you have to consider every minute issue in the state. By far, Biden’s biggest weakness is maintaining a stable economy.

Since September, the economic conditions have improved to an extent, but Trump still holds the key to maintaining a strong economy in the state. With the rise in immigration, Biden is at a greater risk of losing elections if economic perception is taken into consideration.

He added, “At the moment, Biden is polling negatively on his perceived lack of leadership in the Gaza war, while Trump remains mired in his legal travails. It’s likely the November winner will be the candidate facing the least-worst issues in the minds of voters by the time November rolls around.”
