Joe Biden goes to church but refuses to take questions from the waiting press as new poll shows Americans feel he will 'calm down' the protests while Donald Trump wants to 'encourage fighting'

Democratic nominee Joe Biden attended Sunday services at St. Joseph on the Brandywine in Wilmington, Delaware Sunday, as President Donald Trump golfed at his Virginia course. 
As Biden was leaving church, he waved to the pool of reporters stationed on the other side of a cemetery from him, and ignored a plea to come over and engage in Q&A.  
The former vice president has taken only a few questions from journalists in recent months. 
Biden's late son Beau is buried at St. Joseph. 
New polling that also came out Sunday showed that nearly a majority of Americans believe Biden wants to 'calm down' the Black Lives Matter protests, while Trump wants to encourage more fighting.  
A new CBS News/YouGov Battleground Tracker poll found that 49 per cent of registered voters nationally believed Biden was trying to calm the situation down, with 39 per cent saying the same thing about Trump. 
Forty-seven per cent believed Trump was trying to encourage fighting, while 30 per cent sai Biden was stirring the pot.

A majority of registered voters believe reforming the police is a better way to end the protests than punishing protesters, though Trump voters believed two-to-one that punishing protesters would work better. 
Overall, 60 per cent of registered voters believe police reforms would be a better way to end protests, with 91 per cent of Biden supporters backing that statement, but just 22 per cent of Trump supporters.  
Only 3 per cent of Biden voters believed protesters should be punished, compared to 54 per cent of Trump voters and 25 per cent of voters overall. 

Trump voters were most worried about the economy if Biden were to win. 
59 per cent said economic issues made them fear a Biden win, followed by 31 per cent who said policing and protests, 7 per cent who said race and race relations and finally 4 per cent who worried about the coronavirus. 
On the flip side, the handling of the coronavirus made Biden voters the most fearful of a Trump second term.
