Tuesday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre why President Joe Biden’s polls results were worse than former President Donald Trump’s numbers.
Co-host Sara Haines asked, “Now, if the economy is strong, why don’t more Americans feel that way?”
Jean-Pierre said, “What the president has done is transform the way we think about it, right? We used to talk about the trickle-down economy. He doesn’t say that. He doesn’t believe in that. He believes in building an economy from the bottom up, middle out.”
Elle added: “Polls go up. Polls go down. We all know this. I know you all talk about this very often, so we know that’s a reality.”
Griffin said: “Biden’s State of the Union Address is expected to double as a soft launch for his 2024 campaign, but a new ABC News poll says voters are even less enthused about Biden running again than Trump, a low bar. How do you respond to that fact that a whopping 58 percent of Democrats and Democrat-leaning want someone other than the president to run?”
Jean-Pierre said, “There are many different polls out there, so I’ll state that first. But I also want to say we do follow the rule of the law, unlike the last administration. So we are covered by the Hatch Act. I have to be very careful what I say when I speak about politics or when it comes to political races.”
