Pelosi “Can’t Believe” Anyone Would Vote Republican
(TheRedWire.com) – Over the last several weeks, congressional and Senate races have tightened significantly from the summer months. According to FiveThirtyEight, Republicans have a 4-in-5 chance of flipping the House, and the Senate is a toss-up. Don’t try to tell House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Recently, she’s pushed back on polls suggesting her party is in deep trouble with voters.
On Monday, October 24, Pelosi rejected any notion that the trends favored Republicans two weeks out from the election. She told The New York Times that she couldn’t “believe anybody would vote for these people.” The speaker argued that abortion was still a top issue among most women and Independent voters despite polls pushing the matter below the economy, inflation, jobs, and crime.

On Sunday, CBS Face the Nation, Pelosi challenged Democrats to dismiss inflation as a “global phenomenon.” She stated the fight wasn’t about inflation. Instead, the Speaker said candidates should focus on the cost of living and the importance of getting out the vote. Host Margaret Brennan asked Pelosi whether she planned on remaining in the Democratic leadership in the new Congress. She replied that she didn’t want to talk about that and that what was important was winning the November 8 election.
