Joe Biden easily dismissed voters who say they are better off now than they were four years ago.
According to a Gallup poll, 56% of voters said they are better off now than they were in 2016. Thirty-two percent said they were worse off. The poll was taken from September 14th to 28th.
On Monday, Biden went to Cincinnati to directly speak to voters. He had a socially distanced campaign event at Cincinnati Museum Center. He later spoke with Local 12’s Kyle Inskeep.
Inskeep cited the Gallup poll and asked Biden, “Why should people who feel that they’re better off today, under a Trump administration, vote for you?”

“Well if they think that, they probably shouldn’t,” Biden answered.
“They think – 54 percent [sic] 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 also said.
“And in addition to that, we have a president who doesn’t share the values of most Americans. He’s not very honest with people. He’s flouting the conventions relative to public safety in terms of even now – not wearing a mask, a guy who has been a super spreader. But look, whatever they believe, they should go out and vote. People should vote. Period,” he then added.
