Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway told The Story on Friday that polls showing that President Trump was following Joe Biden nationally and in major battlefield states were not a surprise to her.
“Three things are happening right now. We had a global pandemic [which] is still with us … We have an economic crisis that the President is managing, “Conway told Martha MacCallum. And also, we have social unrest and people calling for racial justice and the like, and so this president is on top of the three … and Joe Biden is completely missing from the conversation, which is why his polls are high.
“People put Joe Biden exactly what they want it to be,” added Conway, who predicted voters will be “deeply disappointed once they see him and hear him over and over again.” time “.

A Fox News poll released Thursday found Trump to be nine points behind Biden among voters in the president-elect, Florida, home state. Polls of registered voters in Georgia, North Carolina and Texas show that these states are clashes between the outgoing president and the former vice president.
“You can’t say,” Raise your hand, I’m not Donald Trump. “Joe Biden was 40 years old to make significant changes that would have put us in a better position to deal with all of this,” said Conway. “And Donald Trump has done a better job in less than four years. ”

MacCallum then pressed Conway on the poll numbers saying the president was unable to contact voters and citing his approval numbers, which Conway rejected.
“The surveys relate to the numbers of the horse races. And let’s be honest, these polls are precisely where I think they would be right now when you look at the New York Times race polls, [Trump and Biden are] a few points apart and they are both less than 50% overall, “said Conway.” I would expect a President’s approval rating to be less than normal when we are going through so many crises in this country. It doesn’t surprise me at all. ”
