A new report is revealing that elderly voters in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Joe Biden’s hometown, are concerned about a 2024 presidential run. The mostly Democrat city recently weighed in on Biden seeking re-election and shared concerns about Biden’s cognitive ability to do the job.

Messenger.com traveled to Scranton to ask residents if they felt Biden’s age was a deterrent.

Eighty-six-year-old Barbara Petroski, a 2020 Biden voter, said she believed Biden was no longer up to the job and did not possess the capabilities to act as President for another four years,

“He’s making a good front and everything, but I just don’t think he has the capabilities anymore,” Petroski said. “And four more years? I just don’t think he’s going to have the brain power.”

Petroski also noted that she would prefer former VP Mike Pence as a candidate for President and that she would only vote for Biden if he was running against President Trump in 2024. According to Petroski, both men are too old to run for office,

“There comes a time when you have to step down. And it’s hard to concede to that too, you know.”

The Messenger reported that Biden is having difficulty finding support in his hometown. Eighty-two-year-old Ike Mielo also voted for Biden in 2020. Mielo drives a minivan full of kids to school every day but does not want to be equated with Biden.

“Don’t compare me with him,” Mielo said, acknowledging his closeness in age with the ailing politician. When asked if he would put his support behind Biden for a second time, Mielo said he believed someone else should run as the Democrat nominee,

 “You start to lose your mind after a certain age. I see myself, you know. I think we need a younger guy.”

Hillary Clinton also admitted that Joe Biden’s age was a problem. She said, “His age is an issue, and people have every right to consider it.”

One Twitter user posted a  tiktok compilation showing the extremely erratic behavior Americans have grown accustomed to seeing from Joe Biden. ” Joe Biden has old age and Dementia to blame for his lack of patience, inability to concentrate, and his obvious lack of coherence, but he’s always been a nasty pathological liar and talked down to people!”


Biden is likely to have a smattering of support in Scranton from the senior citizen community but is being thrust forward as the 2024 Democrat candidate, not for his achievements for America but simply as the best option for those who dislike Donald Trump’s personality.
