Biden claims that he will "absolutely" serve two terms if elected while defending himself against Trump's criticism that "he's not all there" in an interview with Kamala Harris following a 5-point poll by DNC
- Joe Biden saw poll numbers jump 5 percent on the Sunday after the Democratic National Convention last week
- His runner-up, Kamala Harris, also saw a 6 percent increase after the four-day event, which was aimed at attracting voters and nominating the Democratic ticket
- The duo will appear for their first face-to-face interview as runners-up on ABC News on Sunday night
- Biden told the network that if he is elected in November, he will have two terms
Joe Biden said Sunday he would serve two terms "absolutely" if the president-elect, as the recently nominated Democratic candidate, saw a 5 percent vote spurt on the back of the four-day Congress last week.
In an ABC News / Ipsos poll from August 11th to 12th, Biden was 40 percent positive, and in the same poll from August 21st to 22nd – after the first fully virtual democratic national convention – his approval rose to 45 percent.
Also prior to Congress, Biden had a negative net favoritism rating, meaning that more people disapproved of him than approved, a statistic that has now been flipped.
Biden and runmate Kamala Harris try to continue their momentum in their first in-person interview, which airs Sunday night, the clips of which were released earlier in the morning.

Harris also enjoyed a positive upturn in Congress as she concluded Wednesday night with a speech accepting the vice-president nomination, and on Thursday, the last night of the convention, she appeared after his acceptance speech with Biden.
Before Congress, the California Senator had an approval rating of 35 percent, and on Sunday the poll found it was 41 percent.
In their first side-by-side interview as a runner-up, Biden told ABC News that 'David Muir will serve two terms if he is elected in November, despite claims he wants to be' Transitional candidate & # 39; to run.
When asked if he only wanted to serve one term, Biden said "no".
"You leave open the option that if you are elected you will serve eight years?" Muir interviewed the candidate, who was officially nominated at the events last week to appear on the Democratic ticket.
"Definitely," said the former vice president.
Harris and Biden appear side by side in their first face-to-face interview, but two meters apart, on ABC News on Sunday night – some clips of the previously taped sitting were released on Sunday morning.
The survey of 714 American adults found a slight over-sampling of black and Hispanic respondents.
Biden already holds a vast majority of the black community's favor compared to President Donald Trump, and his highest favor in general is with this demographic, with 69 percent viewing him as cheaper.
Only 39 percent of white American adults feel the same way, and 52 percent of Hispanics say they see the candidate in a good light.
Biden also saw that his favor among Democrats rose 7 percent from 79 to 86 percent after the convention, which historically has had a positive impact on the favor of the nominated candidate.
In the two polls earlier this month and on Sunday, Trump's favor fell 3 percentage points from 35 to 32 percent.
However, its unfavorable rating hit 60 percent, which Republicans will hopefully change during their own congress this week.
