You aren't looking at the right numbers and graphs, but since you linked RealClearPolitics lets look at them

Currently (today):

National Average (this includes polls in ALL states) shows Biden with a 6.9 point lead. Did you get that? ALL STATES which includes krazyfornia and the left coast and all of those possible popular votes Biden will when there that he doesn't need and won't help him in middle America.

Battleground States: Biden has only 3.1 point lead, well within the margin of error, and these are the states which WILL DECIDE the election. That ain't good numbers for Biden, hence desperate straights.

Let me ask you this, because you’re one of these “RAH RAH! THE TROOPZ!” people, who also allegedly served.

Would you care if he did say it?

Like if he really thought that way about the military and its members, would you even care?

Would you not vote for him?

P.S. I know I’m not going to get a serious answer.

Why should you get a serious answer when you know it did not happen! Stop with the silly gotcha games.

Is it such a stretch to imagine he might of?

He did already say he disliked American POW’s...

Not that you care about that.

It’s simply a... Experiment if you will.

Delving deep into the fragile mind of the Trump Supporters Cultish Innards to discover the truth underneath.

That it doesn’t matter whether he said or not, you won’t care anyway.

And it never matters whether the source is anonymous or not, it’s always the same result, denial.

Bolton also said:

Trump offered 'personal favours to dictators'
The Chinese leader is not the only authoritarian Mr Bolton accuses the president of pandering to.

Mr Trump was willing to intervene in criminal investigations "to, in effect, give personal favours to dictators he liked," Mr Bolton wrote.

According to the book Mr Trump offered help to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in 2018 in a US investigation into a Turkish company over potential violations of Iranian sanctions.

The US president is said to have agreed to "take care of things" and that the prosecutors involved were "Obama people".

The Democrats should have gone further with impeachment efforts
In the book, Mr Bolton backs up Democrats' allegations that President Trump wanted to withhold military aid to Ukraine to pressure its government into investigating his rival Joe Biden. The claim sparked impeachment efforts against Mr Trump.

However, Mr Bolton criticises the Democrats in his book, saying they committed "impeachment malpractice" by just focusing on Ukraine. He argues that if they had broadened the investigation more Americans would have been persuaded that President Trump had committed the "high crimes and misdemeanours" necessary to be removed from office.

Mr Bolton does not say if the new allegations he makes are impeachable offences.

He declined to testify in the process when it was in the House of Representatives late last year, then was blocked from appearing in the Senate by Republicans.

Wait a second, didn't you guys say he was a liar and disgruntled former employee and now he is above reproach, careful taking that path.

Sorry but Bolton's comments don't do a thing to save trump.

I haven't seen anyone on the right say that Bolton is now a good guy. He was a rat and still is a rat. In this instance, he just comes down on the side of the president and I'm sure it pains him immensely.

Did the 'anonymous sources' say Bolton was there for what they heard, and in a position where he must have heard it?

Before answering, bear in mind that we were told to ignore what Bolton says because he was a disgruntled fired person just trying to make Trump look bad for a buck.

Bolton himself said he was present with Trump when the flight was cancelled due to lousy weather.

First things first. Was the flight made or not.

No the flight was not made.

Were arrangements made for a General officer to be present at the ceremony?

Why yes there was since the General was there.

Bolton said the flight was cancelled and Trump let it upset him.

Mr Bolton's book contains several examples of White House officials mocking President Trump.

He describes a dysfunctional White House, one in which meetings resembled "food fights" rather than considered efforts at policy-making.

When he arrived at the White House, the then chief of staff John Kelly warned him, "this is a bad place to work, as you will find out".

Even Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, considered a loyalist, is said to have written a note describing the president as "full of ****"

That's the kicker isn't it? The source, if even exist don't have the spines to go public with their allegations, so we can't ask them can we?

Do you think there were several different discussions when it was decided the President wouldn't visit the cemetery? Both Bolten the Atlantic state it was "the discussion."

In other words they are not near even and trump is losing.

He only stated what he knew on the matter and even admits he wasn't there all the time. The right loved him until he was fired/resigned then trump went after him and they hated him, most on the left already disliked the guy and still do, his book was just one of several that show trump is unfit for the job.

No. Bolton can only speak of what he knows from his own personal experience. The truth really is that simple and irrefutable.

He isn't an anonymous source.

And Bolton isn't even a friend of Trump. So you know Bolton is telling it straight. Nothing happened. It's all (another) made up lie to slander Trump in an election year.

Of course. It shows how skeered they are of losing the election...lol

He is one person. He was not with Trump 24/7. I’m willing to take Bolton at his word (unless/until proven wrong) for what he personally witnessed, not what he didn’t.

How many named sources have confirmed the comments?
