Jill Biden says she feels 'positive energy' about race but 'not taking anything for granted'

With 13 days to go, the former second lady is hitting the trail for her husband.

"I feel a lot of really positive energy but we're not taking anything for granted. And I hope ... that your viewers know that, and everybody, everybody gets out there and votes," Biden said on ABC's "The View" on Wednesday.

As Biden’s campaign enters the final days, Biden is in a winning position by all traditional metrics.

Still, Biden’s campaign manager, Jen O’Malley Dillon, warned against getting comfortable with an unpredictable opponent like Trump.

In the days leading up to the final presidential debate between Biden and Trump Thursday night, Biden has hunkered down in Wilmington, Delaware, prepping with advisers for his tussle with Trump after their raucous first debate.

Trump has signaled his plans to attack Biden’s family, but on Tuesday Jill Biden argued that would be a distraction.

"The American people don't want to hear these smears against my family. The American people are struggling right now. I mean, they're in the midst of all this chaos. They're trying to figure out how to put food on the table, you know, they don't have jobs, they need health care. Americans don't want to hear this," Biden said, before praising her husband for speaking directly to voters during the first debate.

"Donald Trump just ranted and I don't even know what he was doing up there. So, this time, the commission has said that they will mute the mics, and they'll each get their two minutes to speak and so the American people will clearly see their choice," she continued.

While the former vice president prepares, Jill Biden has hit the campaign trail hard for her husband, becoming one of his most active surrogates . On Tuesday alone, she took part in four events in the critical state of Michigan.

All told, she has headlined roughly 25 events in eight battleground states in October -- including Florida, Georgia and Texas -- in addition to a steady flow of virtual events during the final stretch of her husband’s third presidential run.

The Biden campaign has taken a different tact from Trump’s when it comes to the trail. While the former vice president and his surrogates have begun holding drive-in rallies to speak to voters in a socially distanced manner, the president has continued a string of large, in-person rallies as COVID-19 cases continue to rise across the country .

"I think it's totally irresponsible that people are going to these rallies and they're not wearing masks, they're not socially distancing," Jill Biden said of Trump’s campaigning. "It's irresponsible and people will die because of this."
