CNN anchor Jake Tapper said during an interview over the weekend that President Joe Biden was bringing down the entire Democrat ticket, according to newly released polling.

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

“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. 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.”

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

Murphy denied the results of the poll, claiming that the elections would turn out differently and that it was only “one poll” — even though 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” and claimed that there were “60 other polls that show that Joe Biden is in the lead,” but couldn’t name any of the polls.
