Joe Biden is 81 years old.

While many wonder whether the political rivals are too old to return to the White House for a second term, credentialed actuary Scott Witt used his expert knowledge to predict how long Biden and Trump will likely live.

First and foremost, Witt informed a news publication how since both Trump and Biden are white men, there is strong scientific data backing the chance of them living for at least another five years.

Since they already have survived for roughly eight decades, their ability to avoid dying for this long drastically increases the probability of more life ahead, according to Witt.

Additionally, Trump and Biden have both outlived the expected lifespans of men born around the same year they were welcomed into the world in 1946 and 1942, respectively.

"You live to that age, you’re probably not going to die of an opioid overdose, you’re probably not going to die in a drunk driving accident," Witt explained. "Once you survive all these risks, you’ve made it that long, you’ve got some longevity in you, it’s not crazy to think you could live longer."

Plus, their parents' long lives further fuel the likelihood Biden and Trump have some time left before they pass.

Plus, former president Jimmy Carter is months away from turning 100, though he is unfortunately no longer awake every day and remains in hospice.

"That could be a coincidence, but it could be indicative of advances in medicine, especially among those who have access to the best of the best in terms of health care," Witt noted.

The Daily Beast spoke to Witt about Biden and Trump's lifespans.
