With just over three weeks until election day, the media is working hard to convince Americans that Democratic nominee Joe Biden is ahead of President Donald Trump by double digits, citing one poll or another as their source.
And while there are plenty of stories about the Biden campaign surging ahead, reality continues to tell a very different story.
A visit last week to Phoenix, Ariz., by both Biden and his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif. reflected what seems to be a recurring theme — no people at Biden campaign events.
Arizona FOX 10 reported on the candidates’ visit to the Heard Museum, where they met with tribal leaders from around the state and there were no supporters on hand. In fact, it was so quiet the president’s son, Eric Trump, weighed in to say: “Never a good sign.”

“Not a lot of fanfare out here. There’s really not much to see,” Fox 10 reporter Nicole Garcia said. “It’s kind of boring out here — it’s not your typical presidential campaign event. We don’t see people campaigning outside. We don’t see signs or really much of what’s going on.”
Garcia added that the Biden campaign explained they kept details of the event quiet to keep the crowds to a minimum because of the pandemic.
At the same time, she stressed that it was a “pretty big event for the two of them to be campaigning together for the first time since the Democratic National Convention in Arizona.”
Adding to the draw, Biden and Harris were joined at the museum by Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who backs the Democratic ticket.
Whether details were released or not, a smattering of people somehow knew Biden and Harris were in town, as they turned out to greet them.
Interestingly, there appeared to be more vehicles in the Biden motorcade than there were supporters on hand.

The candidate was asked yet again about adding seats to the U.S. Supreme Court and refused to level with voters.
“You will know my opinion on court-packing when the election is over,” Biden said, according to AZ Central.
As for the emergence of favorable polling for Biden, Fox News host Laura Ingraham explained Friday on “The Ingraham Angle” that Democrats want to demoralize likely Trump voters by “suppressing turnout and citing ‘lousy’ polls indicating a Biden lead. If that don’t work, fear-mongering via COVID is the fallback.”

Though, it would appear that social media users are not falling for the ruse… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
LOL. Zero supporters showed up to welcome Joe Biden at a campaign event in Arizona today.
The polls are GARBAGE.

Why is the Left trying the FAKE POLLS thing again? Hillary was ahead in ‘polls’ by big margin at this time last election. You would think a new strategy would be tried… apparently Democrats don’t have any new ideas! pic.twitter.com/qk8OStMHF1

That endorsement from Cindy McCain sure helped him out in Arizona didn’t it?

Liberals are claiming it was intended to be a small event and that the cameras were not in the correct location to see the crowds. Not sure Why ABC-Soros would do such a thing though.

His supporters are social distancing miles away in their homes. No need to show up since he’s leading by a million percent.

They show up after the rally.
It’s a weird strategy that Harris/Biden is employing.
Everything happens after.
Vote and find out what the platform is after the election.

I’m sorry, but it’s pretty obvious that all of the polls are farce lies, when absolutely no supporters show up for @JoeBiden rallies. How can the majority @realDonaldTrump be behind w/ all of the huge support he has everyday, everywhere.Something always smells in politics 🧐
