A shocking new poll has Democrats contorting themselves to explain it away – and Presidential Nominee Joe Biden campaigning for President Donald Trump.
The poll shows that 56 percent of Americans believe that they are better off now than they were four years ago.
The poll was taken by Gallup from September 14th to the 28th, and it asked that famous question that Ronald Reagan asked Americans during his 1980 presidential campaign: “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?”
56 percent of Americans responded in the affirmative, while only 32 percent in the negative. It is almost an incomprehensible finding, considering what we have gone through and are still going through with regard to the coronavirus.
President Trump called it “pretty amazing,” tweeting:
The Gallup Poll has just come out with the incredible finding that 56% of you say that you are better off today, during a pandemic, than you were four years ago (OBiden). Highest number on record! Pretty amazing!
Democrats and mainstream media outlets went into spin mode. CNN, for example, claimed that President Trump and his administration are not responsible, and thus shouldn’t get the credit, for people being better off. It also highlighted other polls, such a Trump’s approval rating.
This is to be expected. But, Biden’s response wasn’t.
Did he really just say that?
Biden, on Monday, was asked about the finding of the Gallup poll, that 56 percent of Americans feel better off today than four years ago. Anchor Kyle Inskeep of Cincinnati’s WKRC Local 12 asked Biden, “So why should people who feel that they are better off today, under the Trump administration, vote for you?”
“Well, if they think that, they probably shouldn’t,” Biden replied, and he didn’t stop there.
“If they think — 54% of the American people are better off economically today than they were under our administration? Well, their memory is not very good, quite frankly,” Biden said.
He continued with a rant against President Trump, accusing him of being a superspreader. Then, Biden concluded, “If I’m elected, I’m not going to be a president — a Democratic president. I’m going to be a president for all Americans, whether they voted for me or against me.”
Someone ought to remind Biden that, if 56 percent of Americans don’t vote for him, which might be the case considering that he just told them not to, then he isn’t going to be the president of anyone.
