The Biden campaign has admitted to a "shift" among the electorate which has made it no "surprise" that the president is losing key voters to former President Donald Trump, based on a recent New York Times/Siena poll.

The poll, conducted Feb. 25 - Feb. 28, found that just one out of four registered voters believes "the country is moving in the right direction." It also showed that Trump has been breaking the Democrat stronghold among women, which are now evenly split.

Speaking with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, campaign co-chair Mitch Landrieu first questioned the accuracy of the poll, before seemingly explaining it away as "tectonic shifts."

"Well, first of all, I‘m not sure that‘s accurate, but assuming that some of those things are occurring, it‘s not really a big surprise. As you know, because you‘re an expert in political science, there are tectonic shifts going on amongst the electorates."

He then rattled off a talking point - suggesting that "women in this country understand that Trump has declared war on them by appointing three Supreme Court justices that have reversed Roe versus Wade, that has resulted in Alabama outlawing in vitro fertilization."

"Or in Ohio, police officers [having] gone into a woman‘s house to look into a toilet because they’ve now criminalized miscarriages. So now you see a huge swing, as should be expected, of women basically saying, ‘Why is the government in the business of my reproductive health,'" he continued.

Watch (via the Daily Caller):

According to Landrieu, Biden will "fight for every vote," adding "The president’s going to talk about his record, how when he came into office, what he had to deal with, what it is that he put together in a bipartisan way — really, that has been second to none — and then he‘s going to talk about the future. But the bigger point that Joe Biden wants to tell America is that America is worth fighting for, that democracy [is at] risk, and that when we do things together we can do big things."
