A majority of Americans believe President Joe Biden doesn’t have the ability to make it through a second term, according to a poll released Sunday.

Sixty-one percent of Americans said Vice President Kamala Harris would end up taking over for Biden if he won a second term, according to a Harvard Caps/Harris poll.

The number was higher among Republicans, with 82% saying Biden wouldn’t make it through the presidency. Thirty-five percent of Democrats believed Biden would not be able to serve a full term.

The survey polled 2,004 Americans online between May 17 and 18.

Americans also expressed doubts about Biden’s mental capacity in general.

Fifty-seven percent of Americans said they had doubts about his mental fitness, and 65% said Biden is showing he’s too old for office.

Biden has publicly addressed concerns about his mental health but has refused to take a mental acuity test, despite Nikki Haley and Donald Trump calling on him to do so. (RELATED: ‘We Need A Younger Guy’: Senior Citizens Say Biden Is Too Old To Run Again)

“With regard to age, I can’t even say, I guess how old I am, I can’t even say the number. It doesn’t register with me. But the only thing I can say is that one of the things that people are going to find out is, they’re going to see a race, and they’re going to judge, whether or not I have it or don’t have it. I respect them taking a hard look at it. I’d take a hard look at it as well, I took a hard look at it before I decided to run,” Biden said. “I feel good and I feel excited about the prospects, and I think we’re on the verge of really turning the corner in a way we haven’t in a long time.”
