Jill Biden appeared on The View Tuesday and co-host Meghan McCain asked her how “can you counter” Trump saying that “he has a 96 percent approval rating in the Republican Party” and that “he is predicting a big win because of the silent majority, which we know from 2016 does exist.”
Biden responded that she has “a little bit of a different slant on it. She said that from what she’s seen, “a lot of Republicans are going to vote for Joe.”
She continued that “You know, and they’ve been saying it. Maybe they’re not saying it publicly. But when I was out there on the trail, a lot of people came up to me and said, ‘Jill, I’m a Republican, but I’m going to vote for your husband because he’s a moderate and he’s a steady leader and we believe in Joe.'”
She believes that his handling of the Coronavirus has tested their loyalty, saying that “And so, I think, you know, of course Trump has his supporters. But I think a lot of his supporters have become disillusioned, especially in the way he’s handled this pandemic.”
“We’ve seen the — you know, just these last two days, the spike in the numbers of people who are getting sick and how he’s not even addressing it and taking care of American families. So, I have a little bit of a different take on it than maybe you do,” she finished.
