President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign released an ad Thursday highlighting his ability to walk and take trips to other countries.
“He entered Ukraine under the cover of night, and, in the morning, Joe Biden walked shoulder to shoulder with our allies in the war-torn streets, standing up for democracy in a place where a tyrant is waging war to take it away,” the ad’s voiceover says.
Biden met with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky in February, which was “the first time in modern history that an American president went into a war zone not controlled by the United States,” the ad says, touting his “quiet strength.”
The ad, which emphasizes Biden’s ability to wake up early and take long train rides, is the campaign’s most direct engagement so far with the question of Biden’s age. Since he announced his campaign for reelection, his administration has attempted to portray him as having a youthful vigor. Sen. Chris Coons (D., Del.), who serves as the co-chair of Biden’s campaign, said on CNN Thursday that he hoped the president’s polling would improve when Americans see him “striding forcefully” in the ad.
Biden’s age has been his greatest weakness in polling. About three-quarters of Americans believe he is too old to serve another four years, according to two recent polls from the Associated Press and the Wall Street Journal. A CNN poll released Thursday showed every Republican candidate for president, except for Vivek Ramaswamy, leading Biden in a hypothetical general election matchup.
