Joe Biden took issue with voters who think they’re better off under President Trump, saying their memory is not good and they “probably shouldn’t” vote for him.
At 56 percent, the number of people who feel they are better off is higher than that under George W. Bush in 2004 (47%) and Barack Obama in 2012 (45%), and even Ronald Reagan in 1984 (44%).
During an interview with local station WKRC in Cincinnati on Monday, Biden was confronted with that startling poll number.
Gallup 56% of Americans feel better off under Trump “So why should people who feel they are better off today, under the Trump administration, vote for you?”
Biden responded, “Well, if they think that, they probably shouldn’t.” For those who think this race is over

Biden Thinks Anyone Who Feels They’re Better Off Now Shouldn’t Vote For Him
When confronted by the statistic, Biden took a peculiar stance, telling voters they probably shouldn’t support him.
“Well, if they think that, they probably shouldn’t,” he said, replying to a question on why those Americans should vote for the Democrat nominee.
Biden seemed rather confounded by the idea that people actually thought economic policies under the President are better than they were under the Obama administration.
Wow. Biden asked about the 56% of Americans who say they are better off than they were four years ago.

“They think — 54 percent of the American people believe they’re better off economically today than they were under our administration?” he asked.
“Well, their memory is not very good, quite frankly.”
He was asked about 56 percent of voters, replied that it was 54 percent within seconds, and accuses them of having a bad memory?
Biden Had a Very Bad Day
Biden’s comments are similar to those made by Mitt Romney in 2012 when he spoke of “47 percent” of the people who won’t vote for him, as well as Hillary Clinton’s comments about “deplorables” in 2016.
Both comments negatively affected their campaigns.
But Biden seems to be Teflon for criticism because his ‘gaffes’ are so numerous that it’s hard to concentrate on just one.
In the span of just a few days, the former vice president has stumbled frequently.
He told voters that they don’t deserve to know his stance on packing the Supreme Court.
Biden is asked if voters deserve to know if he will pack the Supreme Court.

He struggled to identify Senator Mitt Romney, instead referring to him as “a Mormon.”
Racists and bigots always identify people by color or religion. Biden can’t remember Mitt Romney’s name, so to Joe he’s now just “the Mormon.” There goes that vote… pic.twitter.com/HyJjGuUB9Y

Biden announced he was running for Senate, just weeks before Election Day.

President Trump slammed Biden for his disastrous day.
“Joe has never been a nice or kind guy, so it’s easier to find this obvious [and] rapidly getting worse ‘dementia’ unacceptable for (the) USA!” he tweeted.
