Jill Biden, former Second Lady, argued that Democrat voters who like another candidate better should “swallow a little bit” and vote for her husband anyway since “we have to beat Trump.”
“Your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, health care than Joe is, but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election. And maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘Okay, I sorta personally like so and so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.”
It is accurate that Joe Biden has polled better head to head against Trump, though some polling shows that electability gap is shrinking.
Per PoliticalWire, a new Economist/YouGov poll found 65% of Democratic voters said Joe Biden would “probably beat Donald Trump” — unchanged from June. But the number saying the same thing about Elizabeth Warren jumped 14 points since then, to 57%, the highest of any other candidate.
In the overall race, Biden led Warren by just 1 point among Democrats in a match-up with Trump. That’s after being 16 points ahead of her in June, according to the poll.
