WASHINGTON DC: Voters in key battleground states expressed concerns about both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump.

The upcoming 2024 presidential election attracted varied support, particularly as current issues like the Russia-Ukraine war and the Israel-Hamas conflict further polarized the electorate.

Voters express concern about Joe Biden's old age and America's rising inflation

In interviews with CNN's John King, voters from Arizona, Georgia, and Michigan shared their apprehensions about the leading candidates.

Some voters are particularly worried about Biden's age and health and are unhappy with Trump's reactions.

"I just don't feel comfortable with Biden's age, and I don't feel comfortable with Trump's mouth," Georgia voter Kim Cavaliere said in the interview, according to Fox News.

Georgia resident Walter Robinson Jr voiced his economic concerns, saying, "It's just me and my wife, and it's $200 every time I go to the grocery store."

One more named Carey Fulks said, "Everything here in Georgia is so expensive. I can only afford so much with whatever job I find."

One Michigan voter criticized Biden's stance on the Israel-Hamas war, saying, "Nobody wants to vote for Biden. If Biden wants to get certain votes, he needs to change course," noted the outlet.

Voters are hesitant about Donald Trump's possible second term

Despite concerns about Joe Biden, some voters still have reservations about Donald Trump.

"At this juncture, they both had four years, and I'm just eight years more frustrated than I was before," Arizona voter Ray Flores expressed his frustration during the interview as per the outlet.

"I wish we had a candidate that had more of a middle of life and middle of the road perspective," Flores added. "I'm very uncomfortable right now with either choice."

"Honestly, I wish that there was another candidate that would have come through the primaries instead of it being just Donald Trump," he said.

Internet reacts to public mood against Donald Trump and Joe Biden

Despite voters showing reservation for both Joe Biden and Donald Trump, netizens seemed to lean in favor of Trump's win in the June 27 debate and the November 2024 elections.

One user on X (formerly Twitter) speculated, "This debate will end Biden’s re-election and everyone knows it. The prepping was probably a meeting on who will replace Biden."

Another commented on the low expectations for Biden, writing, "But the bar has been set incredibly low for Biden. Unprecedented."

Critical of Biden's health one wrote, "Democratic Party and Biden wife must be sued for abuse of a SENIOR man, considering his physical weakness to walk and difficulties in communications."

Another speculated about Biden's debate performance, "Can’t wait to see what Biden we get tonight. He’s been shacked up for a week to get pumped with drugs, so I’m guessing he’s going to do just fine."

One user summed up the mood saying, "They are both way too old. Trump is rarely coherent and Biden may not live to the end of the term. 80-year-olds should not run for office."

The sentiment was echoed by one more X wrote, saying  "Y'all focus on his age. It's NOT the age, it's Biden's Mental Capacity/Acuity."
