CNN: ‘Biden Is a Drag on the Democrats’ Ticket’

CNN’s Jake Tapper has warned that President Joe Biden is standing in the way of the Democrats winning the presidential election in November.

Tapper made the remarks on CNN’s “State of the Union” show while interviewing Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) on Sunday.

Responding to newly released polling, Tapper said “Joe Biden is a drag on the ticket” for Democrats.

“Let’s talk about the campaign because Trump was in battleground Michigan last night making a pitch to African-American voters,” he said.

“Polls show Biden trailing Trump in key battleground states and polling well behind your Senate colleagues who are running for reelection.”

“Look at this New York Times poll from last month,” he continued.

“Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin is up nine points in Wisconsin.

“Biden’s only up two points.

“Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey up five in PA.

“Biden’s down three,” Tapper noted.

“Arizona Congressman Ruben Gallego, running for Senate in Arizona, up four, Biden down seven.

“Nevada Senator Jacky Rosen up two in Nevada.

“Biden’s down 12,” he added.

“How can you look at this, these statistics, these numbers and not conclude that Joe Biden is a drag on the ticket?” Tapper asked Murphy.

Murphy responded by denying the results of the poll.

He claims that the elections would turn out differently.

The Democrat senator argued that it was only “one poll.”

However, The New York Times/Sienna poll is widely considered to be the most accurate poll in all of politics.

“I mean, you’re happy for your colleagues, I’m sure, but Biden is underpolling all of them,” Tapper responded.

Murphy again could only counter with “That’s one poll.”

He claimed that there were “60 other polls that show that Joe Biden is in the lead.”

Unsurprisingly, however, Murphy couldn’t name any of the alleged polls.
