The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, who is often accused of doing the Democrat’s bidding, has sunk even lower during a recent interview with Joe Biden.
During an episode of the NBC show, Fallon gushed over Biden by claiming he is “bringing class back” to the presidency by attending events at the Kennedy Center and mingling with the elite. President Donald Trump didn’t attend those events.
Fallon implied that Trump was not a classy president because he did not mingle with the elite.
“It was great to see you there [the Kennedy Center],” Fallon said.
“We gave you a standing ovation, because I go, ‘Here he is, he’s bringing class back. He’s a classy guy.’ You’re bringing class back to the office, and I thought it was amazing that you did that,” Fallon said.
Fallon explained, “I was at the Kennedy Center, and I saw Republicans and Democrats in the crowd,” Fallon told Biden. “Everyone was laughing at jokes and listening to great music — everyone seemed cordial and nice, and I go, ‘This seems like this should be much easier to get along with everybody.’”
Biden said, “The Trump arm of the Republican Party — which seems to be the Republican Party now — did not even show up at the Kennedy Center. They wouldn’t go to the awards.”
“So all the people you have — we saw at that event, which was a very fulsome event — were people who in fact, are Republicans, but they’re the kind of — like, for example, a lot of Republicans and Democrats used to get really on well together,” Biden said.
What the clip:
A damaging poll shows what Joe Biden’s own political party thinks of him, and it’s not good.
Roughly only one-third of Democrats hope to see Biden back on the 2024 Democrat presidential ticket, according to an I&I/TIPP poll released Monday.
The survey asked directly, “Who do you want to see run for president on the Democratic ticket in 2024?”
Among Democrats, Biden did not receive overwhelming support.
Only 37 percent say they want to see him run again on the Democrat ticket in 2024.
The number of Democrats say they’re unsure who they support to be on the ticket.
Vice President Kamala Harris, who is polling as the worst VP in U.S. history, received only 16 percent support from Democrats.
The survey occurred between December 1 through 4 among 1,013 registered voters. A margin of error of +/- 3.2 percent was reported by the survey.
A separate I&I/TIPP poll shows that Trump leads Joe Biden in every U.S. region but one among 2020 election voters,
The poll asked, “If the presidential election were held today, and the following were the candidates, for whom would you vote?”
In September, Biden held a four-point lead over Trump (46 percent to 42.1 percent).
However, that has changed, according to the poll. Biden has lost 1.2 percentage points while Trump gained 1.8 points, the poll found.
The poll reveals that Trump leads Biden in the south, 45.8 percent to 44.6 percent.
Trump also leads in the midwest, 45.9 percent to 44.9 percent, as well as the west, 42.4 percent to 39.7 percent. Only in the liberal northeast, Biden has a lead over Trump, 53.6 percent to 39.1 percent.
More on the poll’s findings:
Trump now leads Biden among those aged 45-64 (45.8% support Trump vs. 41.8% Biden), those 65 and older (50.7% vs. 39.3%), women (44.9% vs. 41.9%), Whites (50.2% vs. 38.4%), independent voters (46.2% vs. 36.9%), suburban voters (47% vs. 39.4%) and rural voters (54.8% vs. 37.2%), and married women (52.2% vs 40.0%).
Moreover, even among those who still favored Biden in October, Trump realized some significant gains. Among Black voters, for instance, Trump moved from 18.1% support in September to 20.3% in October.
Among Hispanic voters, the fastest-growing voting bloc in the U.S., Trump gained a hefty 14.6 percentage points, from 24.2% to 38.8%. That’s more than the 33% of the Hispanic vote that Trump garnered in the 2020 election.
Trump has also flipped the tables on Biden among married women, who favored Biden 42.4 to 42.1 percent in September. In October, those numbers separated. The poll revealed Trump is now leading among married women 53.2 percent to Biden’s 40 percent.
The positive polling for Trump comes as Biden’s approval rating on Monday sank to a new low, according to FiveThirtyEight. Only 43.4 percent approve of Biden’s performance while 50.7 percent disapprove. The gap is the largest it has been all year.
