For some crazy reason, Biden seems to think he’s actually ahead in the polls against President Donald Trump.

On Tuesday, a reporter asked, “What’s your message to Democrats who are concerned about your poll numbers?”

“My poll numbers? The last five polls you guys don’t report,” Biden responded.

He claimed, “I’m winning — five! Five in a row!”

He added, “You guys only look at The New York Times… great paper.”
