Biden Campaign Denies Polls Show Trump Winning

The campaign of President Joe Biden said this week that a series of recent polls showing him losing to former President Donald Trump were inaccurate. The statement came as Trump continued to build support within the Republican Party primary, with his chief rival, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) dropping out after disappointing ‘Super Tuesday’ results.

Trump is now leading in most national polls and most polls of individual battleground states.

Biden campaign communications director Michael Tyler said that polling “continues to be at odds with how American votes and consistently overestimates Donald Trump while underestimating President Biden.”

“Whether it’s in special elections or in the presidential primaries, actual voter behavior tells us a lot more than any poll does, and it tells a very clear story: Joe Biden and Democrats continue to outperform, while Donald Trump and the party leaders are weak, cash-strapped, and deeply divided,” he said.

In addition to the topline figures, Trump generally leads voters on questions regarding the economy, inflation, foreign policy, the border and crime.

The Biden campaign’s statements also came as polls showed both strengths for Trump and weaknesses for Biden.

A series of recent surveys have found that a large majority of Americans believe that Biden is simply too old or too unwell for the presidency.

There has been increased concern about Biden’s mental faculties after the release of special counsel Robert Hur’s report last month. The special counsel declined seeking charges against the president in regard to the alleged withholding of classified material in part due to Biden’s memory issues.

According to Hur, Biden struggled to remember basic elements of his life, including when he was vice president and when his son Beau Biden died.

The special counsel wrote in his report that if the case was brought to trial, Biden would likely position himself as a forgetful elderly man.

Biden denied any concern about his age or mental focus later that day. During the press event, the president made several verbal stumbles and confused the nations of Mexico and Egypt.
