Joe Biden was quick to sack voters saying they are better off now than they were in 2016.
A recent Gallup poll, conducted September 14-28, made headlines after it found that 56 percent of voters said they were better off now than they were four years ago. Only 32 percent of them said they were doing worse.
During an interview with Cincinnati’s WKRC Local 12 Monday, reporter Kyle Inskeep quoted the Gallup poll and asked the Democratic candidate, “Why should people who feel better today under a Trump administration vote for you?”
“Well, if that’s what you think, you probably shouldn’t,” replied Biden.
The former vice president seemed surprised by the Gallup poll but misquoted the statistic.
BIDEN REPEATS GAFFE THAT HE IS RUNNING “FOR THE SENATE”
“You think 54 percent of Americans think they’re doing better economically today than they were under our administration? Well, honestly, their memories aren’t very good,” Biden told Inskeep. “And besides, we have a president who doesn’t share the values of most Americans. He’s not very honest with people. He’s breaking public safety conventions, even now – without a mask, a guy who was awesome -Spreaders? But look whatever they think they should go out and vote. People should vote. Period. “
Trump used the Gallup poll and tweeted that the poll was “incredible”. He wrote, “56% of you say you are better off during a pandemic than you were four years ago (OBiden). Highest number in history! Pretty amazing!”
Earlier in the day, the former vice president repeated the gaffe at a campaign rally where he accidentally said he was running as a “proud Senate Democrat” for the presidency.

He also appeared to have forgotten Mitt Romney’s name when speaking to reporters about whether Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s beliefs should be challenged during her SCOTUS endorsement.
“You may remember, I got in trouble when we ran into the senator who was a Mormon, the governor, okay? And I took him on,” Biden said. “Nobody’s beliefs should be questioned.”
