Nearly two months into his presidency, Joe Biden is yet to hold his first White House press conference. According to a new Rasmussen Reports phone and online survey, 52 percent of likely U.S. voters say they are concerned he hasn’t held a press conference.

That figure includes 37 percent who are “very concerned” about Biden’s lack of a press conference. Twenty-four percent say they are not very concerned while 22 percent are not concerned at all.

Biden, 78, is the oldest person elected to the presidency. Only 34 percent of voters are “very confident” he is physically and mentally up to the job of being President of the U.S. Another 14 percent says they’re “somewhat confident.” Ten percent are “not very confident” and 40 percent are not confident at all.

The number of those “very concerned” about Biden’s failure to hold a press conference are:

55 percent among Republicans
16 percent among Democrats
40 percent among unaffiliated voters
