During an event at the White House celebrating the Stanley Cup champions, the Las Vegas Golden Knights, President Joe Biden playfully referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as ‘president’ and stumbled over the pronunciation of her name. This incident adds to a series of slip-ups involving his running mate, drawing increased scrutiny as the 2024 election approaches. Notably, Donald Trump, the leading contender for the Republican nomination, has questioned Biden’s health and mental abilities in light of these gaffes.

Despite these verbal missteps, Biden maintained a light-hearted atmosphere during the celebration. He cracked jokes, received a golden hockey stick from the team, and even humorously suggested a potential face-off between the Vegas Raiders and the Philadelphia Eagles, quipping about potential marital consequences if the Eagles were to win, given his wife Jill Biden’s allegiance to the Philly team.

Injecting humor into his speech, Biden also made light of polling data, asserting that the Golden Knights’ ownership had more accurate predictions than poll results, which he claimed not to pay much attention to. This remark elicited laughter from the audience.

However, Biden’s re-election campaign is actively disputing recent polling data that indicates he is trailing behind Donald Trump in several key states. Polls conducted by The New York Times and Siena College revealed Biden falling behind in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, and Pennsylvania, with only a slight lead in Wisconsin. These states were pivotal to Biden’s victory in the 2020 election.
