Report: Biden Has Meltdown in Private Meeting over General Election Polling

A new report claims that Joe Biden has a breakdown in a private strategy meeting, screaming and cursing at staff who informed him that he is currently losing to former President Donald Trump in general election polling.

According to the Washington Examiner, several anonymous sources close to the Biden campaign gave details about the incident, during which several key statistics were given to the president. Biden, according to the witnesses, was “seething” after being told that his handling of the war in Israel had caused his approval ratings to plummet in key swing states such as Michigan and Georgia, leading to him shouting and swearing at those who were present.

Witnesses also say that, as a result of the consistent polling showing that he will lose many key swing states to President Trump, Biden has been “second-guessing” his entire campaign strategy and messaging with just over 7 months to go before the general election in November.

Biden’s increasingly hostile tone, which some say may be a side effect of his ongoing cognitive decline, was reflected in his most recent State of the Union speech, which was far more partisan and politicized than past addresses. Biden spent much of the speech simply attacking Trump and “MAGA Republicans” rather than outlining an agenda for the final year of his term, leading to numerous boos and heckling from members of Congress and guests alike.

The current aggregate of all major pollsters shows President Trump currently leading Biden in the national vote by about 1.5%. Trump’s margins only increase when the major third-party candidates are factored in, including Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Jill Stein, and Cornel West, all of whom are left-wing and thus more likely to take votes from Biden than from Trump.

Polling also shows Trump with an increasingly consistent lead in key swing states, including Georgia, Nevada, Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. While Trump has continued to post record-breaking numbers in the various primary contests, Biden is facing increased opposition in the form of “Uncommitted” votes, in states such as Hawaii, Minnesota, Michigan, and North Carolina.
