“We’ve got some all-time midterm highs that should serve as red flags for the Democrats,” Chuck Todd said.
- 71% of Americans say we are on the wrong track.
- 57% of Americans disapprove of Joe Biden on the economy.
- 50% of Americans say the economy will get worse.

Excerpt from NBC poll:
Seventy-one percent of voters say the country is headed in the wrong direction, compared with 20% who say it’s on the right track.
It’s the sixth time in the last seven NBC News polls that the wrong track answer has been higher than 70%.
“These are really difficult numbers for Democrats, and they have had them for months,” said McInturff, the Republican pollster.
And 20% say the economy will get better over the next year and 26% say it will stay about the same, while 50% say it will get worse — the highest number on the question dating to 1994.
The poll also found 70% of all registered voters expressing high interest in the election — either a “9” or a “10” on a 10-point scale — the highest percentage ever in the survey for a midterm election at this point.
“It’s an eye-popper” when you have a higher number now than in 2018, which set a turnout record for a midterm election, said McInturff, the GOP pollster.
By party, however, 78% of Republicans have high interest in the midterms, compared with 69% of Democrats.
The 9-point GOP enthusiasm edge is up from September (when it was plus-3) and August (when it was plus-2).
