Joe Biden made this confession about his health. Here’s why he could drop out of the race.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is in a dog fight for the Democrat Party Presidential nomination.

Biden has fallen behind, as Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has overtaken Biden in the key early states of Iowa and New Hampshire.

And now Joe Biden made this confession about his health. Here’s why he could drop out of the race.

One of the biggest questions surrounding Joe Biden is his age.

Biden is 77-years-old and shows serious signs of being past his prime both mentally and physically.

The former Vice President keeps a light campaign schedule and often times has trouble remembering names, dates, or even where he is.

But in a campaign swing through Iowa Biden even admitted he may not be up to the job physically or mentally.

In a rare occurrence, Biden fielded questions from voters about who he would pick as his Vice Presidential running mate.

Biden said it would be important that person be able to serve as President on day one because Biden’s age could prevent him from completing his first term.

Voters were stunned by this admission.

Biden’s age and declining mental health are the elephant in the room for his campaign.

But with one answer, Biden dragged questions about his physical and mental fitness out in the open and refocused the debate in the closing days before Iowa on all the doubts in people’s minds about if Biden is actually up to the job of being President.
