Democratic nominee Joe Biden attended Sunday services at St. Joseph on the Brandywine in Wilmington, Delaware Sunday, as President Donald Trump golfed at his Virginia course.
As Biden was leaving church, he waved to the pool of reporters stationed on the other side of a cemetery from him, and ignored a plea to come over and engage in Q&A. The former vice president has taken only a few questions from journalists in recent months.
New polling that also came out Sunday showed that nearly a majority of Americans believe Biden wants to 'calm down' the Black Lives Matter protests, while Trump wants to encourage more fighting.
A new CBS News/YouGov Battleground Tracker poll found that 49 per cent of registered voters nationally believed Biden was trying to calm the situation down, with 39 per cent saying the same thing about Trump.
Forty-seven per cent believed Trump was trying to encourage fighting, while 30 per cent sai Biden was stirring the pot.
