This is the worst answer Joe Biden gave at his press conference

It was one of Joe Biden’s shortest answers in his nearly-two hour press conference 水曜日.

It was also the worst.
He was asked, “How do you plan to win back moderates and independents who cast a ballot for you in 2020 だが, polls indicate, aren’t happy with the way you’re doing your job now?” The President responded this way: “I don’t believe the polls.
    どれの, 上手, 何?
      If you heard echoes of former President Donald Trump in that answer, you’re not alone.
        If it’s bad, I say it’s fake,” Trump said last year. “If it’s good, I say that’s the most accurate poll ever.
        そして, 戻って 2018, トランプ told a crowd this about the news more broadly: “Don’t believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news. … What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.
          That’s not to equate what Biden did on Wednesday with the four years of misleading and outright lying Trump did as president. They’re not the same.
          そして, my guess is that Biden was simply being glib in his response to a question about the polls. 実際には, Biden referenced polling again in the same press conference.
          “ええと, すべて — every president, not necessarily in the first 12 月, but every president in the first couple of yearsalmost every president, すみません, of the last presidentsat least four of themhave had polling numbers that are 44 percent favorable,” he said at one point.
          そう, Joe Biden believes in polling. This was a throwaway line aimed at dismissing a question he didn’t want to answer: Why are independents so unhappy with the job you’re doing?
            だが, the context matters here. Biden came to office amid an ongoing onslaught of truth and facts by Trump — 関して 2020 election and just about everything else. とすれば, he doesn’t have the luxury of being glib or dismissive of polling. Because there are already a whole lot of people in this country who believe that the last presidential election was stolen from Trump (そうではありませんでした) and who have been conditioned over the past few years to disbelieve anything that doesn’t affirm the views they already hold.
            承知しました, it’s easier to dismiss polling as useless than to admit that your numbers among independents aren’t great and you need to do a better job of reaching those voters between now and November. だが, being presidentespecially after the four-year rolling crisis of Trumpisn’t about doing the easy thing. It’s about doing the right thing. And in this answer at least, Biden didn’t do that.
