A photo of the card revealed that it contained a question written in large letters, apparently from a reporter at the event.

During the press conference, Biden was questioned about his age and unpopularity, citing recent polling data indicating that 70% of Americans, including a majority of Democrats, do not believe he should run for re-election.
The President defended his record and acknowledged the polling data, but pointed out that his approval rating is between 42 and 46 percent, which he argued is not unusually low for an incumbent president seeking re-election.
