‘A huge red flag’: Chuck Todd panicked over the GOP lead in the NBC Midterm poll

During NBC’s panel segment Meet the pressHost Chuck Todd openly panicked Republican leadership over his network’s generic congressional ballot poll on Sunday, calling it a “huge red flag,” and commenting on how the GOP has led NBC’s generic congressional ballot poll since September 2014. .

Dispatch editor and panelist Steve Hayes believes there are two reasons why President Joe Biden and the Democrats are suffering in the election. “We are not seeing any improvement” In economics, and the second “She is [Biden] I don’t think there’s anything that can be done to help, both in war and in economics. “

Hayes argued that Biden could come out in support of one “All-in Power Policy”, Which in Hayes’s view will bring down the price of gas. But as he mentioned, Biden could sue, but his leftist base would not allow him.

Todd jumped in and touched on an NBC poll question that showed 38 percent of voters blamed Biden for rising inflation. Todd tried to give the president a positive spin on unusual numbers:

You can see it most generously, Susan, okay, okay, only thirty-eight percent blame President Biden and most blame something else, but here’s what you can do. The funny thing is that only six percent are responsible for Russia’s aggression in Ukraine, and that’s a certain thing the president said.

USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page responded with the truth “Before Russia invaded Ukraine, inflation was a problem,” he said. And directed “Three of the last four presidents have lost control of the House of Representatives in their first midterm elections.”

Then came the sad moment for Todd as he read the original poll search:

I am going to test our generic ballot here. The public is going to look at it, you’ll see 46-44, up by two Republicans, oh it’s not, that’s a coin flip. This is the first time we have led Republicans in our poll generic ballot since September 2014, eight years ago. There is always a little bit of democratic addition here because the Democrats are more in more districts here. A huge red flag!

NBC News Washington correspondent Yamiche Alcinder kindly agrees that “It’s a huge red flag, and it’s associated with the idea that people are blaming President Biden’s policies for inflation.” He noted that part of it was that voters were saying they trusted Republicans more to control Congress and become better stewards of the economy. “It’s going to be a tough thing for Democrats to overcome and get the message across,” he said. Alessandro worried.

Todd ended the segment by accurately citing gas prices and inflation “A regressive tax. It affects people more strongly at the bottom of the socio-economic ladder.”

NBC’s Meet the press
3/27/2022
11:11:43 am East

Steve Hayes: I think part of the reason he’s fighting his economy is, one, we’re not seeing any improvement and two, he’s not willing to do that kind of thing, I think war and economics in both cases can actually help. I mean, if you talk about a universal power policy that will solve some of the issues that are coming out of Russia and prevent some possible inflation, he can sue but I don’t think his grounds will allow him.

Chuck Todd: Look, I want to point out that you have counted the votes of President Biden. Who do you blame for inflation, I want to express it here. Because, you can see it most generously, Susan, okay, okay, only thirty-eight percent blame President Biden and the majority blame something else, but here’s what you can do. The funny thing is that only six percent are responsible for Russia’s aggression in Ukraine, and that’s a certain thing the president said.

Susan Page: Okay and of course inflation became a problem before Russia invaded Ukraine, although it clearly increased gas prices and had some other effects. However, this is a matter of great concern for the White House. Three of the last four presidents have lost control of the House of Representatives in their first midterm elections, and is there anyone in Washington who doesn’t think that will happen in November?

Todd: Well, it’s funny and yamiche, I’m going to test our generic ballot here. The public is going to look at it, you’ll see 46-44, up by two Republicans, oh it’s not, that’s a coin flip. This is the first time we have led Republicans in our poll generic ballot since September 2014, eight years ago. There is always a little bit of democratic addition here because the Democrats are more in more districts here. A huge red flag!

Yamiche Alsinder: It’s a huge red flag, and it combines the notion that people are blaming President Biden’s policies for inflation. This is in line with the notion that Americans are still very, very concerned about how much they are paying for more than just gas, and that is part of the reason that when you ask people, they are basically saying that the Republicans believe in their economy. That is going to be a difficult thing for Democrats to overcome and the message about.

Todd: Yeah and this gas problem, it’s a regressive tax. It affects people more strongly at the bottom of the socio-economic ladder.
