Former Vice President Joe Biden disagrees with the 56% of Gallup poll respondents who said recently that they are better off now than they were four years ago.
Only 32% of respondents to the September 14-28 poll, which surveyed about 1,000 adults, said they are worse off now than four years ago.
When a reporter in Cincinnati asked Biden on Monday why Americans in that 56% should vote for him, the candidate responded, "Well if they think that, they probably shouldn't."
"They think — 54 percent of the American people believe they're better off economically today than they were under our administration?" Biden questioned, misquoting the number from the poll. "Well, their memory is not very good, quite frankly."
Biden then criticized President Trump for being dishonest and not wearing a mask. The Democratic nominee also emphasized that "whatever they believe they should go out and vote. People should vote. Period."
