( – President Biden has been campaigning all over the United States in an attempt to deal with the polls which have shown him to be lagging behind former President Donald Trump. According to some sources, the media coverage relating to the polls has started to get to President Biden. 

During his recent campaign stops, Biden has reportedly frequently complained in front of donors about the poll media coverage, making mentions of how the press only reports on the survey numbers that are not favorable to him. 

The Biden campaign and the White House have maintained that election day is too far away and that the polls are unreliable. However, the president has displayed annoyance with the way that the media has been handling the polls. 

On Tuesday during a campaign stop in Raleigh, N.C., Biden noted that while there has not been a lot of media coverage there are many national polls that show them to be in the lead. This week Biden has had some very positive polling numbers. 

On Wednesday a Quinnipiac University poll that was released had found that Biden had received 48 percent of support while Trump had received 45 percent. Even when the poll included third-party independent candidates, Trump still only barely managed to be ahead of Biden with 39 percent to 38 percent. 

On Tuesday, a Bloomberg News/Morning Consult poll had found that in the seven battleground states Trump was still ahead of Biden, but that ahead of the election Biden appears to be closing the gap. 

The Hill and Decision Desk HQ aggregation of over 600 polls found that Biden was behind Trump by only 0.9 percent.
