Poll: 77% of American voters want maximum age limit for elected officials

Source: Axios

“Over three-fourths of Americans think there should be a maximum age limit for elected officials, according to a CBS News/YouGov survey. The poll comes as attention toward the age of politicians has been in the spotlight after several incidents, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) freezing in front of reporters and ongoing concerns about President Biden’s age. 77% of those surveyed said there should be ‘maximum age limits for elected officials,’ meaning ‘after they reach a certain age, they are not permitted to hold office any longer.'” (09/10/23)
