Table Text Color Date Comparison

I have a table and would like to compare a date field in the record to today's date to set the color and am coming up with an issue.
most dates work fine, some don't.
using this code in the text color box of that field:

I get these results:

I can't for the life of me figure out why both of the date values individually come out correct but they can't seem to accurately compare.

Hi @Shegs,

Maybe try adding another columns or 2 to the table with the value of {{ new Date().toLocaleDateString() }} and the result of the other columns you're comparing to help debug what's going on?

Today is generated by:

What I am looking for is for the Expiration Date to be red if it is in the past.
currently it appears to work for some but not all fields.
