“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.”
A recent poll from Gallup found that 56 percent of registered voters believe they are better off after four years under President Trump than they were four years ago under the Obama/Biden administration.
Joe Biden was asked by a reporter why these voters should support him. Biden said they probably shouldn’t.
Suggestion noted, Mr. Biden.
Here’s the detail from the Gallup Poll:
Most Say They Are Better Off Now Than Four Years Ago
During his presidential campaign in 1980, Ronald Reagan asked Americans, “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” Since then, this question has served as a key standard that sitting presidents running for reelection have been held to.
Gallup’s most recent survey found a clear majority of registered voters (56%) saying they are better off now than they were four years ago, while 32% said they are worse off.
This is an outstanding election metric for Trump. At least Biden was honest in his response.

Biden Responds to Gallup’s ‘Better Off Now’ Survey by Attacking Voters
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden responded to the Gallup poll showing a majority of Americans saying they’re better off now than they were four years ago the only way Joe Biden knows how to: by attacking the respondents.
“Why should people who feel that they’re better off today under a Trump administration vote for you?” a reporter with Cincinnati’s WKRC Local 12 asked the former vice president.
“Well if they think that, they probably shouldn’t,” Biden initially responded…
“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,” Biden told reporter Kyle Inskeep, getting the stat wrong.

It’s amazing how candid Joe Biden can be when he is allowed to speak freely.
