Democrats are in trouble —unless you ask Nancy Pelosi.

According to a report from Fox News, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is dismissing polls that indicate a red wave may be inbound; Pelosi says Democrats are “in great shape” for the midterm elections.

Pelosi made the comments in an interview with Punchbowl News released Wednesday, after polls from The New York Times and Associated Press indicated big gains for Republicans in the upcoming elections, Fox reports.

While the Speaker acknowledges inflation is an issue, she feels it won’t impact midterms due to its “global” nature.

“Inflation’s an issue, but it’s global. It’s global. … What’s their plan? They ain’t got nothing,” Pelosi told PBN of Republicans. “When you bring down unemployment, inflation goes up. … So in any case, [President Biden] brought unemployment [down], cut it in half. Inflation is thereby, but it’s global and not as bad as it is in some countries. We’ll have to message it better in the next three weeks ahead. I think we’re in great shape. Other people don’t want to believe that.”

Pelosi also expressed that abortion would play a major impact when voters head to the polls next month —although there’s very little evidence to support that claim.

From Fox News:

Monday’s NYT poll found that 26% of voters said the economy is their most important issue, followed by inflation and cost of living at 18%. Abortion came in third at just 5%. Immigration also landed at 5%, while crime rounded out the top five at 3%.

President Biden’s own polling numbers have dropped since Democrats first got a boost in the polls in July and August, falling to 39% on Monday. A Fox News Poll found that just 33% of voters would choose to re-elect the president.
