Rob, I think Biden easily pulls off 6ft1 with Reagan, if the latter was still around 6ft.
Editor Rob
Reagan could have been close to 6ft, with Arnie in that's always interesting how some papers in the 80's actually described Arnie as 5ft 10. This was long before the Washington Post 90's article.

Here’s Joe with a President Reagan in 1987

Rob, what do you think?
Editor Rob
The link didn't work, but I presume This one, he could edge out Reagan (who at that time might be 6ft).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/20
Rob, I reckon there’s hardly anything between them, 2cm tops maybe. But it’s a question of is Trump now closer to 6ft flat or could Biden still measure close to 6ft?
viper said on 12/Sep/20
Yeesh, take out any biases and Biden has lost about 20 steps from just a few years ago.

Obvious cognitive decline
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Sep/20
Biden is mentally and physically in far better shape than Trump, viper but I see there this is going and I don’t think we should dispute it further. This is an apolitical forum
Editor Rob
Yeah, I would like to see Trump and Biden do a debate, so we can compare their height...not their policies or how they speak teleprompter free.
viper said on 9/Sep/20
Biden doesn't seem healthy or have much energy.

Trump seems, way, way younger in that regard

@Animus heavier men don’t last as long. Most old men are skinny and we all know why

Biden is a pretty healthy guy. I don't think he would run at his age, if he had poor health.
Animus said on 6/Sep/20
Impressive that his weight, at least at the time of his physical, was a mere 178lbs. For a 182cm man at his advanced age that is not a lot of weight to be carrying.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Sep/20
There was NEVER 3in between Biden and Trump.
vastlybetter566 said on 4/Sep/20
I'm surprised Joe never made a claim. I bet, he would add at least an inch to his height and call anyone questioning his claim a "lying dog faced pony soldier".
Nik Ashton said on 30/Aug/20
I have seen his son Hunter described as 5’8” online! 👌
Jtm said on 29/Aug/20
Sorry tariffman but you need evidence to back up your estimate. You just seem like you are downgrading his height because you hate him so much.
Tall Sam said on 28/Aug/20
Ah Sleepy Joe, the unfunny school yard taunt of a bullying "president"...who may have lost around 2 inches to Biden's rough inch of loss, plus an exponential amount of pounds for Trump (health and exercise can make a difference).
TariffMan said on 27/Aug/20
Sleepy Joe is a VERY WEAK 5ft11.

(And I'm not judging, how close Sleepy Joe is to 5ft10)

I'm going with a VERY WEAK 5ft11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Aug/20

Biden - weak 6ft1
Trump - strong 6ft2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Aug/20
Really though, there’s photos of Biden with Trump at Bush Sr.’s funeral and Trump is barely taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Aug/20
Rob, would you say Biden has lost less than average for a 77 year old?
Editor Rob
yeah, I think around an inch by mid 70's for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Aug/20
Nik Ashton said on 16/Aug/20
Trump may think that Joe is 6’2”!

Which would be the greatest compliment! Probably would think Barack Obama is 6ft4 too
Alir?za said on 16/Aug/20
If he is still 182 cm at 77 years, his peak height could be easly 6'1.5-6'2. Honest man for saying his current height, considering that Trump said 1 inch above his peak height
Nik Ashton said on 16/Aug/20
Trump may think that Joe is 6’2”!
JustJohnny said on 14/Aug/20
I’ll give Joe the 6-0 currently and in recent years.

As veep, he only looked 1” shorter than 6-1 Obama.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Aug/20
He still looks a solid 182cm now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/20
Yeah I think B is even arguable. But A is pushing it, that’s more Obama territory
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Aug/20
Rob, which of these peak is arguable?

A) 187.5cm/185.5cm
B) 187cm/185cm
C) 186.5cm/184.5cm
D) 186cm/184cm
E) 185.5cm/183.5cm
Editor Rob
C-B is possible, more so than just E
J W DAVIS said on 1/Aug/20
A good example of someone who hasn't lost any height
Spencer said on 23/May/20
Peak 184-85. 5'11.75" now.
MrFish said on 27/Mar/20
Rob, how tall does Pete Buttigieg look with Biden? Also, Buttigieg and Patrick Stewart were on Jimmy Fallon together—how would you say they stack up to one another? Thanks.
Editor Rob
Pete might be around 5ft 8, didn't seem much different than Patrick
David duFresne said on 14/Mar/20
I don't know what his footwear is, but he looks 6', so I'll give him that. Would not surprise me at all if he is some fraction below it. It's hard for a 5'11 flat guy to stand out in modern America, at least among white voters, so I'd say he's got to be above that. Besides, he might take me outside if I shortchange him.
omar said on 10/Mar/20
Hasn't lost as much height as bernie, but has lost way more brain power.
Nik Ashton said on 20/Feb/20
I wonder what he claims!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/20
185cm peak wouldn’t surprise me
Eric W. Tam said on 17/Feb/20
I like how his Google height is sandwiched between his peak and current heights. I'm just going to give him 185 cm peak and 181 cm now.
greg99 said on 9/Feb/20
I Saw Joe in the Iowa debate, and he was noticeably the tallest person on the stage (slightly taller than Bernie), including 5'11" Jake Tapper. Biden still appears to be close 6' - I would have guessed a young Joe Biden would have been 6'1" or close to. He really hasn't lost that much height, which is odd.
MrFish said on 19/Jan/20
Rob, how tall does Marco Rubio look here in 2011 with Biden? Less than 5ft 9, I think.

Editor Rob
Looks closer to 9 than 8 with Joe
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Dec/19
There are pictures of him in the 70’s towering over Jimmy Carter. He was over 6ft in his prime for sure, quite possibly near 6ft1...
cmillz said on 28/Dec/19
What if he was never over 6’0 peak? Wouldn’t surprise me one bit
Canson said on 27/Dec/19
@Rob: what time of the day did his physical take place is the real question.
Editor Rob
I think you can safely rule out the idea of it being evening!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Dec/19
Rob, how about 6ft0⅝ peak?

That’d look good
Editor Rob
It's possible, but currently his 11 5/8ths looks right, I can believe the doctor actually measured him, unlike Trump, who was given a blank form and filled in his height and weight.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Dec/19
It’s the lowest I’d go for if not the full 6ft1. But yeah I do agree he is fit for 77 so maybe he hasn’t lost that much
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Dec/19
Rob, how about 6ft0¾?
Editor Rob
Would be highest I'd go for him.
khaled taban said on 24/Dec/19
6'0.5" peak is suitable for Biden , Current is 5'11.5" I feel.
Mickie said on 24/Dec/19
I doubt he's quite as low as 15% body fat. No question his body composition is decent for his age, but for a nearly 80 year old guy, 15% be pretty ripped. Maybe low 20s.

Height wise - shrinking with age varries a lot. I've had 2 elder male relatives I'm thinking of one who made it to mid 60s with no height loss and the other who probably had lost a good inch and a half by that age. The one who lost no height kept fit and active, the one who lost height was an overweight smoker who did truck driving for a living.

Joe does look about this measurement - I can believe 6'0" - 6'0.5" range peak.
Paul NS (6ft 0.5) said on 21/Dec/19
Nice to see he got an official measurement. Definitely don't have a hard time believing it, he still looks pretty close to 6ft. He's held up pretty well heightwise, especially compared to guys like Bernie and Trump
viper said on 21/Dec/19
My 5-8 81 year old Uncle hasnt lost anything. Also he has maintained his same weight since his 20s.

Always has great posture too.
viper said on 21/Dec/19
Hasnt he always been listed at 6-0.

He's barely lost anything
Animus said on 21/Dec/19
Rob, I'm curious, how did you determine his peak height?
Editor Rob
Well check out Biden with Senator Danworth. If you read this Washington Post article Click Here, he was being described 6ft 3 and a half, a very specific figure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Dec/19
Rob, is 6ft1 peak possible?
Editor Rob
I'm not so sure about a full 6ft 1 for him.
DarkPower729 said on 20/Dec/19
Definitely a weak 6ft now. Probably a strong 6ft when he was younger. 5’11.625” now, 6’0.125” peak.
Greg said on 20/Dec/19
Rob how tall would you guess Poroshenko to be his 6’0 listing on google?
Editor Rob
He looks at least 6ft range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/19
I think 184-185cm zone peak is possible
SportsHeight said on 20/Dec/19
Rob, is it realistic for a man Biden's age (77) to have lost less than an inch? Are there men out there who never lose any height at all?
Editor Rob
You'd expect an inch or 1.5 by that time, however he might have lost less than average.
viper said on 20/Dec/19
Thought he still looked his 6-0 listing
Redwing said on 20/Dec/19
Wow, hes doing well for his age then; I can’t believe his bmi is what it is tho? He looks like he’s 15% body fat
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/19
Interesting....would’ve thought still around 6ft. Peak I think he could’ve been near 6ft1
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 20/Dec/19
Joe has a nice, friendly face and it is for that reason alone that I was attracted onto his page!

Another fair-haired politician - they're EVERYWHERE, and on both sides of the Atlantic!

Joe gets 5ft11.5/8ths for today's height and 6ft0.5 for his peak. 😄👱🎅
