Trump insists he leads states where he lags behind in polls

His opponent Biden once again criticized the president for holding massive outdoor rallies amid a pandemic

WASHINGTON – U.S. President Donald Trump has questioned the veracity of polls commissioned by major media outlets that show him lagging behind Democrat opponent Joe Biden.

In an interview with reporters, Trump said that polls conducted by his headquarters show better results.

“The survey results are very good.Trump insists he leads states where he lags behind in polls You don’t see any real sociological data, ”Trump said, speaking at his Las Vegas hotel before heading to Arizona for a couple of campaign rallies..

Most national polls show Biden is 7-8 percentage points ahead of Trump, but that gap is cut in half in key fluctuating states likely to determine the electoral college outcome..

“We’re ahead in almost every state we’re talking about,” said the president, who said he is doing “fantastic results” in Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania, and that he also leads in Michigan and Wisconsin..

According to Trump, the polls showing his lag are “suppression polls” that are “almost comparable to a campaign donation” to the Democratic National Committee.

“Suppression polls” refer to a campaign trick designed to lower voter turnout from a rival camp by trying to convince them that their candidate has no chance.

Averages from large polls compiled by Real Clear Politics show Trump lagging behind Biden in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, while candidates in Florida and North Carolina are on a par..

Biden, meanwhile, reiterated his criticism of the president for holding massive outdoor rallies amid the coronavirus pandemic, noting that the rally held the night before in Omaha, Nebraska, “hundreds of people, including elderly Americans and children, were outside at temperatures below zero “.

“Several people ended up in the hospital,” – said the Democratic candidate.

Biden added that Trump “gets the opportunity to pose for photos, and then leaves”.

“Everyone else suffers from the consequences of his inability to develop a responsible plan, and he just doesn’t care,” Biden said..
