Jill Biden ‘confident’ polls will turn up for Biden: People will ‘choose good over evil’

First lady Jill Biden said during an appearance on The View that her husband’s poor poll numbers “are going to turn” this election year.

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin pressed the first lady on what she sees as the outlook concerning President Joe Biden getting beaten in key polls just five months out from November’s election.

“Consistently, we’re seeing poll after poll that are showing Trump beating your husband outside of the margin of error, when in fact, last time in 2020, Joe Biden was beating him in nearly every poll. How do you turn those numbers around with five months out? And are you fearful of what a second Trump term could look like?” Griffin asked.

“We are going to meet people where they are. We’re going to go to college campuses and go to just every state we can get into,” the first lady said.

Biden added, “Joe has been traveling as much as possible, and we’re not going to take anything for granted. And those polls are going to turn, I’m confident of it.”

“I believe that Americans are going to choose good over evil,” she said on Wednesday.

Polls have consistently shown Trump and Biden within single digits of each other with the former president beating Biden in swing states that Biden had won in 2020. Trump is currently leading Biden across the country, according to a RealClearPolitics polling average.

Recent reporting suggests Democrats are “in full-blown ‘freakout’ over Biden,” with major donors having a “pervasive sense of fear” about his reelection prospects.

“Biden’s stubbornly poor polling and the stakes of the election ‘are creating the freakout,’” a Democratic adviser said.


On Wednesday, the Biden campaign began their outreach initiative, “Black Voters for Biden-Harris,” to appeal to minority voters, a demographic that the president has increasingly been losing to Trump in polls.

According to Pew Research, Biden’s overall approval among black people has dropped during his presidency from 87% in March 2021 to 55%.
