Democrat Presidential hopeful Joe Biden stated during an interview on Monday that 56% of Americans surveyed in a recent political poll "should not vote" for him.
Gallup, in a survey conducted between Sept. 14-28, found that 56% of registered voters said they were better off than they were four years ago, while just 32 percent said they were worse off, reported Fox News. In an interview with WKRC-TV in Cincinnati, Biden was questioned about the results from the poll, with the reporter citing the figure and asking Biden how those voters could be convinced to vote for him.
“Well, if they think that, they probably shouldn’t.” Biden responded. “They think 54% [sic] percent of the American are better off economically today than they were under our administration?” Biden asked, adding “Well, their memory is not very good, quite frankly.”
According to the polling, the results are a positive sign for the Trump campaign, the economy being one of the top issues for voters in this election.
“With the country in the midst of a recession, nearly eight-in-ten registered voters (79%) say the economy will be very important to them in making their decision about who to vote for in the 2020 presidential election – the top issue of 12 included in the survey,” Pew Research Center reported. “The economy is consistently a top voting issue. In a survey asking a similar, though not identical, list of issues in June 2016, the economy also was the top voting issue.”
This is a part long series of gaffes that Biden has become infamous for.
Biden most recently forgot the name of his competitor in the 2012 Presidential race, Mitt Romney, stating, "I got in trouble when we were running against the senator who was a Mormon—the governor."
