‘I Dismiss That’: Pelosi Claims Inflation, Crime AREN’T Top Issues for Voters

'Much of what you’ve said I don’t agree with... '

(Headline USA) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., dismissed polling that shows inflation and crime are two of the top priorities for voters as they had to the polls this November, claiming that abortion will decide the midterm elections.

Pelosi was asked on Tuesday during an interview with MSNBC about a new New York Times/Siena College poll that shows just 5% of voters ranked abortion as a top issue for them. More than 26% said the economy was their top issue, with inflation right behind it at 18%.

“Much of what you’ve said I don’t agree with,” Pelosi responded. “The New York Times poll, I think, is an outlier poll.”

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell pointed out that it’s far from the only poll that has yielded this result.

“It’s also the RealClearPolitics average,” she said.

Pelosi answered: “No, but that was one that brought down the average, and it was an outlier. It wasn’t even that big a sample. So I dismiss that.”

“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,” Pelosi continued.

The House Democrat also insisted that her party isn’t to blame for inflation, claiming Democrats want to ease inflation too.

“But some of the inflation in our country sprang from the fact that this president created nearly 10 million jobs, at least 9 million jobs,” she said.

Despite Democrats’ sagging poll numbers, Pelosi said she feels “pretty good” about their chances of holding onto the House and Senate.

“We want to give women freedom of choice. They want to have a ban on abortion. We want to support and strengthen Medicare, Social Security, etc.. They want to use a debt ceiling to cut that,” Pelosi claimed of differences between Democrats and Republicans.

“We have lowered the cost of prescription drugs for seniors. They want to reverse that. We want to save the planet for our children in the future. They say that that’s a hoax,” she gaslighted.
