"In our interview last week with President Trump, he questioned whether his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, could handle a similar encounter," Wallace said. "This week, we asked the Biden campaign for an interview and they said the former vice president was not available."

"We'll keep asking every week," he added.

After his interview with Trump, Wallace said Biden should sit down for extended questioning.

"The fact is, the president is out there. He's out there in this broiling heat with me for an hour, took all the questions," Wallace told anchor Bret Baier last Monday. "You can like his answers or dislike them, but he had answers, and Joe Biden hasn't faced that kind of scrutiny, hasn't faced that kind of exposure."

"You've got to feel at some point he's going to come out from the basement," Wallace continued. "He's going to have to be more exposed and take questions just as tough as the ones I asked this president."

Trump told Wallace in his July 19 interview that Biden would be "crying for mommy" if he were subjected to the same kinds of questions.

"Let Biden sit through an interview like this, he'll be on the ground crying for mommy. He'll say 'Mommy, mommy, please take me home,' " Trump said.

"Well we've asked him for an interview, sir," Wallace replied.

"He can't do an interview. He's incompetent," Trump added.

Biden has held one press conference in the past 105 days. The former vice president also did not take questions from reporters after two major policy speeches in the past two weeks.

Biden leads in the RealClearPolitics index of polls in several key states Trump captured in 2016, including by 7.8 points in Florida, 7.4 points in Pennsylvania, 8.4 points in Michigan and 6.4 points in Wisconsin.

And what's even funnier are Trump loyalists claiming Biden is dodging by avoiding a Fox interview but don't see it as a dodge when their Dear Leader Trump refused an interview with Mueller.

"after President Trump said Biden couldn't handle tough questioning from the "Fox News Sunday" host."

So Trump called out Biden for dodging an interview but we can't point out how monumentally hypocritical that is because you want this to be all about Biden? Sorry, but that doesn't fly, Trump is part of the seed as the one making an accusation, his own conduct in comparison is clearly fair game.

Not doing interviews on Fox seems to be working out pretty well for Biden. 

Trump's interviews and info-mercial press conferences  don't seem to be increasing his poll numbers.

Seems a reasonable choice on Biden's part.

Where is the profit in doing an interview for an audience that, under no conceivable circumstance, will vote for you? I guess Fox might profit by getting a few Democrats they've never seen before  to tune in for the interview.

"Let Biden sit through an interview like this, he'll be on the ground crying for mommy. He'll say 'Mommy, mommy, please take me home,' " Trump said.

Did you notice that I used a quote from this seed as the context for my comment?   That makes my comment immediately on topic.

Further, per the seed, Trump has encouraged this interview:

"In our interview last week with President Trump, he questioned whether his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, could handle a similar encounter," Wallace said. "This week, we asked the Biden campaign for an interview and they said the former vice president was not available."

Finally, the interview is part of the campaign process.  Biden is running for PotUS.   His opponent is Trump.

I am sure I could offer plenty more reasons why it makes sense to speak of both Biden and Trump, but this should suffice.

Biden leads in the RealClearPolitics index of polls in several key states Trump captured in 2016, including by 7.8 points in Florida, 7.4 points in Pennsylvania, 8.4 points in Michigan and 6.4 points in Wisconsin.

Looks like the Biden camp is seeing good results by limiting Joe's exposure.   It is an interesting dynamic to see a challenger's campaign against an incumbent make headway by essentially keeping the candidate out of the fray and letting the incumbent do all the talking.

Hard to say how much of this is planned, but seeing how Trump responds (very poorly) when he is backed into a corner, this strategy (if it is one) looks to be effective. 

Biden certainly could do more harm to himself than good;  it is best (for his campaign) that he not do the interview.   No doubt his campaign will seek to coast as long as they possibly can.

But, per the reasoning I offered, that makes it even worse.   If the campaign has calculated that Biden is likely to cause himself more harm than good then it makes no sense to have him enter the limelight.   He should be limited to small, brief, controlled exposures not a lengthy, probative interview with someone as sharp as Chris Wallace.

this strategy (if it is one) looks to be effective. 

Only if those poll numbers we are being fed are real!

Well we will not know until election day.   It is difficult to imagine polls like that by Fox being biased to Biden.

Ultimately, if the electorate believes Trump can bring back our economy and that Biden cannot, Trump wins.  

If the electorate is undecided on who is best for the economy, Biden will likely win.

If the pandemic impact continues to November and people continue to be stressed, Biden will win.

IMO

It's very easy if people are afraid to give an opinion. Do you think there are people who have been somewhat intimidated lately, TiG?


Ultimately, if the electorate believes Trump can bring back our economy 

That's a big question. Will he be blamed for the pandemic and following Dr Fauci's recommendations and shutting down that tremendous economy?


If the electorate is undecided on who is best for the economy, Biden will likely win.

Oh, yes, the topic here - Biden avoiding a real interview!  He will need to avoid the debates as well, don't you think?


If the pandemic impact continues to November and people continue to be stressed, Biden will win.

That is the view of others as well. As if Biden will be able to end the pandemic!

If that is your hypothesis, make your case.   I can comment if a case is made.

Very likely.   There will not be a lot reasoning taking place; the electorate (taken as a whole) ultimately operates on simplistic factors.   If the economy is good, Trump has an advantage.   If not, Biden might have an advantage.  

Oh, yes, the topic here - Biden avoiding a real interview!  He will need to avoid the debates as well, don't you think?

Yes, I suspect his campaign is seriously at work trying to minimize his exposure via debate.

That is the view of others as well. As if Biden will be able to end the pandemic!

Again think simplistically like the electorate as a whole.   This will likely be a case of:  'Trump is not solving the problem so let's try his alternative'.

It involves this Poll:

If that poll is true, we can start dismissing all the polls we have been hearing about for the past 2 months.

I would not advise thinking that this one factor warrants dismissing all the polls.   That would be heavy confirmation bias IMO.

Personally, the polls (collectively) influence my thinking when they show clear advantage for one candidate.   And even then we see from 2016 how wrong that can be.  

My sense is that Trump is losing support on a daily basis.   Until the electorate is free of the pressures of the stifled economy and the stress of dealing with this pandemic, Trump (as sitting PotUS) will take the blame.   This is historical and there is no reason why Trump would be immune to this effect.

Biden, as the challenger, has an advantage that he 'could' do a better job than Trump in the critical areas:  economy, pandemic, demeanor.   Biden should thus hide his own negatives (by not appearing) and let his positives (which are Trump's negatives) ferment in the minds of the electorate.

I tend to read all the polls with some skepticism. That being said, I think that Real Clear Politics, which shows all the polls, gives a fuller perspective.

The poll aggregate on election day for Clinton was +3.8 with an margin of error at +/- 4.

RPC and FiveThirtyEight are as good as it gets. The trick is not to focus on any one poll, but to watch how the numbers are trending.

I watched a Fox News interview not long ago on the Fox News website, and at the time I wondered why anyone with a brain in their head would submit to one, and that was an interview with Pompeo.
