Perhaps one of the most encouraging statistics for Donald Trump’s campaign arrived just recently:
According to a two-week Gallup poll, 56 percent of Americans said they are “better off than they were 4 years ago.” Only 32 percent said they’re worse off.
Unsurprisingly, Trump’s opponent was asked about this result.
During a WKRC Local 12 interview in Cincinnati on Monday, Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden faced that question.
First, he said that if people think they’re better off, “they probably shouldn’t.”
But then he went a step further, and issued what many see as a highly questionable set of statements.
From Fox News:
They think- 54 percent of the American people believe they’re better off economically today than they were under our administration?
Well, their memory is not very good, quite frankly.
Given Biden’s history of public misquotes and other gaffes, this might not have been the best choice of words.
As for Trump, he quickly highlighted the poll results in question, calling them “incredible.”
The President also believed the statistic was even more impressive, given the pandemic that has swept the country.
Biden continues to make a few mistakes while in the public eye, which may or may not negatively impact his campaign.
He previously said he was a “proud Democrat for the Senate,” when of course he’s running for President.
Then he appeared to have forgotten Mitt Romney’s name when speaking to reporters. Republicans have seized on this, and have questioned Biden’s cognitive capacities.
Whether or not voters view this as a legitimate problem remains to be seen.
- According to a recent Gallup poll, 56% of Americans feel they’re better off than they were 4 years ago.
- Joe Biden was asked about the statistic. He then said people who think this way have poor memories.
- It may not have been the best choice of words for the Democratic presidential nominee.
