“The fact is, the president is out there. He's out there in this broiling heat with me for an hour, took all the questions," Wallace told anchor Bret Baier on Monday. "You can like his answers or dislike them, but he had answers, and Joe Biden hasn’t faced that kind of scrutiny, hasn’t faced that kind of exposure."

“You’ve got to feel at some point he’s going to come out from the basement," Wallace continued. "He’s going to have to be more exposed and take questions just as tough as the ones I asked this president.

“He’s going to have to do it with a bunch of people and, of course, he’s going to have those three debates with the president and you know that the president can handle himself in these debates. I think there is an open question there, can Joe Biden do the same?”

Baier said he’s asked Biden for an interview on his own show.

Biden currently leads Trump in the RealClearPolitics index of polls by 8.6 points, which is down from his highest lead of 9.8 points one month ago.
