Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden said Monday that the majority of Americans who recently told Gallup they’re better off today under President Trump “probably shouldn’t” vote for him.
In an interview with Cincinnati’s WKRC, the former vice president was asked by reporter Kyle Inskeep to weigh in on a Gallup poll that said last week that 56% of registered voters had reported being better off now than they were four years ago under the Obama-Biden administration.
“So why should people who feel that they are better off today, under the Trump administration, vote for you?” Mr. Inskeep asked Mr. Biden.
“Well, if they think that, they probably shouldn’t,” Mr. Biden answered. “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.
“And in addition to that, we have a president who doesn’t share the values of most Americans,” he continued.
