Arizona delegate says he will still vote for
After President Joe Biden’s alarming debate performance, many Democrats are calling for him to drop his re-election bid and allow somebody else to take on Donald Trump.

But others are continuing to support Biden, including Joshua Polacheck. He’s one of Arizona’s delegates to the Democratic National Convention and is pledged to support the Biden-Harris ticket.

“These calls that people are making in regards to President Biden are coming because they recognize that he is operating within our constitutional democratic order and those calls aren’t coming for President Trump because he is operating outside of our constitutional democratic order," he said.

Polacheck said that although Biden’s delivery and performance may have been concerning to a lot of viewers, he still delivered more truth and substance than Trump.
