Another one of the sources described Biden as getting defensive about the polls. read more

All this screeching about polls makes dems look WEAK. [...] #3 | Posted by truthhurts
As opposed to being lead by a presidential candidate who freezes like a deer in headlights and can't think on topic for more than five seconds?

Yahweh-forbid that the Dems take into account that the public noticed the king has no clothes.

In terms of timing, apparently this meeting with Schumer happened shortly before the Trump rally shooting.
"Chuck Schumer Told Biden to Go Just Before Trump Kill Bid: Report [...] Schumer had a private, one-on-one meeting with the president in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware on Saturday."

They are worried about losing both Houses of Congress. So, their jobs. #2 | Posted by Corky

I suppose that's one way to look at it, as at least some Dem senators and reps would lose their elections. But not Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer, or Hakeem Jeffries. I think these folks, and most of the worried Dems, are more concerned about the harm that Trump could wreak when enabled by both a GOP Congress and SCOTUS.

Biden is just trying to run out the clock.

"Senior D leaders have not changed their minds that Biden needs to get out. I think a final push will come once the R convention ends on Thursday." www.thedailybeast.com

So now Biden is going to make himself unavailable for the next couple weeks to ease the pressure and buy him enough time until the nomination is finalized first week of August.

In the YouTube video "Trump Makes REPREHENSIBLE POSTS after RALLY SHOOTING," the speaker criticizes Donald Trump for his dismissive attitude towards legal indictments against him, including those related to the January 6th insurrection and sexual assault allegations. The speaker expresses concern over Trump's self-centered behavior and its threat to democracy, citing past examples such as fleeing to Scotland to avoid testifying in a civil case and criticizing the judge in that case. The speaker also criticizes Trump's continued claims of a rigged election and his praise for a judge who dismissed a case against him for alleged theft of nuclear secrets and war plans. Noah Rosen Blum, a professor at NYU, is featured in the video expressing concerns about Judge Canon's alleged bias in favor of Trump due to his divisive language and rhetoric. The speaker also criticizes Trump for posting a video of President Joe Biden being gagged and hog-tied, implying it was a call for violence. The speaker urges viewers to judge for themselves and emphasizes the importance of upholding the values of democracy and respect for one another.
