You know it’s bad for Democrats when even one of their biggest cheerleaders, Chuck Todd, is warning that they’re going to get a “shellacking” in November. The Blaze’s Chris Enloe reports:
NBC News anchor Chuck Todd forecasted Wednesday that Democrats are headed for a “shellacking” in the upcoming 2022 midterm elections.
Breaking down the latest NBC News poll, Todd demonstrated how three key metrics squarely paint Democrats in “dangerous territory.” According to the poll:
- 71% of Americans believe the country is “headed in the wrong direction”;
- President Joe Biden’s job approval rating is only 40%;
- Republicans hold a lead over Democrats on the generic ballot, indicating more voters favor the GOP over Democrats for the upcoming election.
Todd explained the negative figures are historic for NBC’s poll, which has been running for decades.
“The current wrong track in our poll: 71%. What is really striking is third straight poll where the direction of the country has been above 70% — only been one other time where’ve had that in our poll. It is not a good time [for Democrats],” Todd said. “Look, 65% wrong track is a bad number. 71%? That’s why it is in the shellacking category.”
