Truthful Gaffe: Biden Says 56% of Americans “Probably Shouldn’t” Vote for Him
With just weeks to the election, Joe Biden finally said something that we can agree with.
Biden was asked about a new Gallup poll, which found that despite a global pandemic, 56% of Americans say they’re still better off today under President Donald Trump than under Obama. This bodes well for Trump, because when Obama was seeking reelection in 2012 only 45% said they were better off under him than the prior administration, and for George W. Bush seeking reelection in 2004 47% said they were better off.

Dec 2012: 45 percent
Oct 2004: 47 percent
Oct 1992: 38 percent

Cincinnati’s WKRC Local 12 reporter Kyle Inskeep cited that Gallup poll, and asked Biden during an interview “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 responded.
Biden certainly is right that most people shouldn’t vote for him – I just think the percentage that shouldn’t is 100%, not 56%.
While this is obviously one of his daily gaffes – it’s nice to see him tell the truth. Even by accident.
