Biden Mocked On CNN For Claiming Polls Showing Trump Winning Are ‘Wrong’

CNN data analyst Harry Enten threw a snide remark at President Joe Biden this week after he rejected polls that show former President Donald Trump leading him in polls in several battleground states.

During an interview last week, Biden had told CNN host Erin Burnett, “The polling data has been wrong all along. You guys do a poll at CNN. How many folks you have to call to get one response?”

In response to Biden’s remarks during a conversation with Enten, Burnett said, “He doesn’t like the polls. Is he right or is it wishful thinking?”

Enten then said, “He loved the polls four years ago when they showed him ahead. These are the same polls now.”

Despite the subtle mockery of Biden, Enten noted that polls can see a drastic change before the November election.

“We still have six months until the election,” he stated, pointing to polling data from 1972 that pegged “six points” as “average difference” between the polls six months before presidential elections.

Enten also stated that there has historically been major errors in polling for the battleground states.

“In the average battleground states, the polls were off six points since 1972,” he said, adding, “In 2020, they were off five points.”

“So for talking about 1-, 2-point leads in these battleground states, the polls could be showing one thing and then the other person can certainly win,” he continued.

Biden’s denial of himself trailing behind Trump in the polls comes amid recent surveys that show that he has a real hurdle to cross in November.

In five of six battleground states, including Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania, Trump leads Biden in a head-to-head matchup, according to polling from The New York Times as well as The Philadelphia Inquirer.

According to The Insider, Biden won these five states in the 2020 election.

The incumbent only managed to lead Wisconsin in the survey by a narrow margin.
