Jill Biden cuts off host, insists Biden not losing to Trump in swing states despite polls that show otherwise

First Lady Jill Biden is quite protective of her husband, President Joe Biden, and is quick to defend him against real or perceived criticism.

That was evident on Wednesday when Jill appeared to cut off and snap back at a morning show co-host who cited a new poll that showed Biden losing to former President Donald Trump in most of the important swing states, according to Fox News.

"No, he's not losing," Jill insists of Joe

First Lady Biden made a surprise appearance Wednesday on "CBS Mornings" to meet and congratulate 2024 National Teacher of the Year winner Missy Testerman and, following that, was asked a couple of questions about President Biden's re-election campaign near the end of the segment.

Asked if she was "worried" at all about her husband's chances of victory in November, the first lady quickly replied, "No, no, no. I feel that Joe will be re-elected."

That is when co-host Tony Dokoupil began to reference a new Wall Street Journal poll which showed Biden losing to former President Trump in six of the seven major swing states, but he was unable to complete the question as the first lady interrupted him to insist, "No, he's not losing in all of the battleground states."

"He's coming up and he's even or doing better," she added. "You know what, once people start to focus in, and they see their two choices, it's obvious that Joe will win this election."

WSJ poll finds Trump leading Biden in six of seven swing states

According to the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal surveyed 4,200 registered voters in mid-March, including 600 voters in each of the seven main swing states, with a margin of error of 1.5% overall and around 4% in each state.

The pollsters found that in six of those states, former President Trump held a lead that varied from one to six points over President Biden, while the political rivals were tied at 46% in Wisconsin.

That includes Trump leading in Arizona, 47-42%, Georgia, 44-43%, Michigan, 48-45%, North Carolina, 49-43%, Nevada, 48-44%, and Pennsylvania, 47-44%.

The pollsters also found that Trump was well ahead of Biden on important issues like handling the economy and border security, as well as with the perception of voters that he has the "mental and physical fitness needed to be president."

The pollsters also discovered that roughly one-quarter of voters in each state were supporting an independant or third-party candidate or remained undecided, but Democratic pollster Michael Bocian cautioned, "Don’t look at these people as excited by third-party candidates."

Instead, he added, "They are saying, 'I’m toying with some other options because I don’t like the options I’ve been given,'" and suggested that at least some of them would begrudgingly come to eventually support one of the two major party candidates.

Other polls also show Trump winning most of the swing states

As for how those poll results compare with the findings of other surveys, the RealClearPolling average of national polls currently shows former President Trump with a lead over President Biden of just 0.6%.

For each of the swing states, RCP has Trump up 4.5 points in Arizona, 3.8 points in Georgia, 2.8 points in Michigan, 3.2 points in Nevada, 4.6 points in North Carolina, and 0.6 points in Wisconsin, while Biden leads Trump by just 0.1 points in Pennsylvania.
