MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace on Biden Polls: I Know It’s Hard, ‘But I’m Not Going to Shield Anyone From Information’ | Video

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace warned her audience before delivering devastating poll numbers for President Joe Biden on Wednesday’s edition of her show.

NICOLLE WALLACE, MSNBC: I know how difficult this story is for my audience, but I’m not going to deprive anyone of this information. This is a new poll out of Wisconsin by AARP.

2024 election, for voters over 50, Joe Biden is at 43%, Donald Trump is at 52%.

In the Senate race, Tammy Baldwin has a lead of about 4 points, but she is losing.

Michael Bennet and George Clooney are the first two Democrats I’ve seen say out loud something that Democrats have been saying, elected Democrats have been saying privately for days after the debate, which is that the polls are going to tank, that it’s not just the White House that’s going to be lost, and that the political arrests and prosecutions that Trump has promised are going to happen. If we’re still here, we’ll be covering these events.

But the idea that Democrats could somehow manage Trump from Congress is ridiculous, because they would lose both the Senate and, I’ve heard the number, 20 seats in the House of Representatives. What do you think about this big gap between public debate and private concerns?
