During an interview with MSNBC Tuesday afternoon, Speaker Nancy Pelosi shot back at host Andrea Mitchell after she was presented with polling from the New York Times showing Republicans are on track to take the House majority in November.
“The New York Times poll I think is an outlier poll, you cite one poll, but all the other polls…” Pelosi said.
“It’s also the RealClearPolitics average,” Mitchell pushed back.

Pelosi’s response comes shortly after she claimed that not only are Democrats in good shape ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, but that she was confident her party will increase their majority.

Prune Face Pelosi is a fossil politician. No one respects her or wants her in power anymore,
when you see the fake polls showing people like Fetterman whose brain is dead, supposedly neck in neck with Oz, you have to know that the fix is in!
There is no way in hell Biden is garnering anywhere near 39-45%, it is fake folks!
TELL BIDEN TO GO TO HELL. WE DO NOT HAVE TO LIVE LIKE THIS. NO ENERGY. WE NEED OUR ENERGY BACK AND I WANT IT BACK NOW. WHO THE HELL DOES THIS STUPID BASTARD BIDEN THINK HE IS. ITS OUR OIL, NOT HIS. DEMAND CONGRESS IMPEACH THIS SOB AND GET HIS ASS OUT OF OUR WHITE HOSE. WE ARE NOT GOING SOCIALIST AND WE DEMAND OUR FREEDOM AND ENERGY TO BE GIVEN BACK . IMPEACH BIDEN. DEMAND IT IMPEACH BIDEN.
I just want to see McCarthy break the gavel when Pukelosi hands it over, after the Republicans destroy her and her party in November. When will we start electing new reps that will indorse
term limits, so that LIFERS like Brandon and Pukelosi can’t get rich on our dime?
