House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is one of the oldest politicians in the country at the age of 82. Many have expressed their concern that she’s unfit to lead.
And Nancy Pelosi just became a laughing stock after her latest blunder.
The Left went into a panic when a recent New York Times/Siena poll showed that Republicans have a four-point lead over Democrats on the generic Congressional ballot. This forced the corporate-controlled media to rethink everything they thought they knew about the election.
Last month, the corporate-controlled press was sure that the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade would make left-wing voters more enthusiastic and help Democrats win the Midterms or at least lose less.
Democrats thought that millions of pro-abortion women would go to the polls to get rid of Republicans as revenge for the Supreme Court’s decision to stop abortions on demand up until the moment of birth across the country.
But a poll by The New York Times showed that isn’t true. 44% of voters said the economy was their top concern, while only 5% said abortion was their top concern.
Andrea Mitchell, a host on MSNBC, talked to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) about how the polls have turned against the Democrats.
But Speaker Pelosi, for some reason, refused to accept the reality of the situation. She said she wouldn’t accept polls that show the Democrats are losing ground.
In her answer to Mitchell, Pelosi said that the poll from the New York Times and Siena was an outlier.
“Well, first of all, let me say that I think that much of what you’ve said I don’t agree with, that is to say, the New York Times poll, I think is an outlier poll, you cite one poll, but all the other polls —” Pelosi began.
But Mitchell spoke up and told Speaker Pelosi that the average of the polls on RealClearPolitics also showed that the Republicans were in the lead.
But Pelosi laughed at that idea and kept saying that abortion was the most important issue in the campaign, which was not true.
“No, but that was one that brought down the average, and it was an outlier,” Pelosi claimed “It wasn’t even that big a sample. So I dismiss that. I have been since Congress adjourned, I’ve been in an average of five states a week. And I can tell you that women’s concerns about their freedom are very, very much still very significant in terms of how they will vote.”
Then, in an interview with Punch Bowl News, Speaker Pelosi doubled down on this crazy plan, saying that all the Democrats had to do to win the Midterms was turn out their pro-abortion base.
“This is about turnout,” the Speaker declared. “We know that the public is with us. But it’s about turnout. So I’m excited. We’ve outraised them, except for their big, dark money, which is endless.”
Every poll shows that the economy and inflation are the most important things to voters.
Yet, radical leftists like Nancy Pelosi are forcing Democrats to focus on an issue that only 5% of American voters say is their top priority.
If the Democrats lose big in the midterms, many on the Left will blame their constant focus on abortion and the fact that they didn’t care about what voters cared about most as the main reason.
And Nancy Pelosi will only have herself to blame.
