When Joe Biden was inaugurated on January 20, 2021, at the age of 78, he officially became the oldest President of the United States.

And even those who couldn't wait to get his predecessor out of office wondered if his age might be a problem.

While one currently must be at least 35 years old to run for president, there is currently no maximum age limit.

However, neither political party has done a good job of inspiring much of the American electorate to vote for them, as evidenced in some of the comments below.

At the start of Donald Trump's presidency, protests raged in response to a ban he ordered via executive order to seven Muslim-majority countries. At the start of Joe Biden's presidency, the nation was still reeling from the Capitol riot, which had happened just two weeks prior.

The country is currently in a remarkably divided time and political bonds have frayed further, charged with anger.

But the real question here is how did these two men do?
