Jill Biden says ‘polls are going to turn’ in favor of Biden

First lady Jill Biden said that while President Donald Trump is struggling in the polls in his head-to-head matchup with former President Donald Trump, she is confident the polls will turn in Biden’s favor ahead of November.

Appearing on ABC’s “The View” on Wednesday, the first lady expressed optimism that the polls will move in her husband’s favor as he continues his campaign.

“We’re going to meet people where they are,” she said. “I’ve been traveling every day and Joe’s been traveling as much as he can. We’re not going to take anything for granted. The polls are going to change. I’m confident in that.”

The first lady argued that as the election approaches, Americans will become more interested in the election and will support Biden over Trump.

“As time goes on and people start to focus a little more on what the issues are and become more educated about the issues and the differences between the two men, I believe Americans will choose good over evil,” she said.

Looking ahead to the first debate, scheduled for June 27, the first lady argued that the president will outshine President Trump.

“I think the American people deserve a debate because you need to see your choice. You need to see Trump, you need to see the president, you need to see the difference. And my husband, you’re going to see how smart he is, you’re going to see how experienced he is, and then you’re going to see someone who, in Joy’s words, can’t even form a sentence,” she said, apparently referring to comments co-host Joy Behar made about Trump.

Biden’s approval rating has consistently trailed or been neck and neck with Trump, but the Decision Desk HQ/The Hill polling average gives Trump a lead of just over 1 percentage point.

He has also lagged behind Trump in various polls in key battleground states. A Bloomberg/Morning Consult poll released last week found Trump leading Biden by 4 points in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Biden’s reelection campaign has largely ignored the polls with just months to go until the election. The president campaigned in Philadelphia on Wednesday and in New Hampshire and Massachusetts last week.
