On June 10, we asked, “When Joe Biden says, ‘There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there who are just not very good people..’ to whom do you think he is referring?” A little less than 600 of our readers answered. The answer choices ranged from, “Native New Yorkers,” to “People who want to keep Daylight Savings Time.” Roughly 42 percent of our readers choice “Viewers of CNN and MSNBC (but they might not add up to the 10 percent threshold.”) This tallies up to 238 votes and takes first place. At 35.1 percent, “Entrepreneurs,” received second place. Last place goes to “Hockey Fans.” Where this answer choice only received 1.9 percent of the total votes.
In case you missed it, Joe Biden made his declaration at the beginning of June while speaking to a group of Black supporters. The former vice president told the supporters that most Americans were decent people. However, he followed this statement with his comment that “there are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people.” We still are unsure what group he was talking about, but our readers have shared their ideas.
