Nancy Pelosi mocks the idea that ‘anyone’ would vote for a Republican, in a New York Times interview


Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, expressed disbelief that “anyone” would vote for Republicans, in an interview with The New York Times on Monday.

The newspaper pressed Pelosi on “troubling” data for Democrats in November. But Pelosi “dismissed the suggestion that last-minute trends appear to favor Republicans,” according to the Times.

“It’s partly because I can’t believe anyone would vote for these people,” she said, before disparaging Republicans’ campaign strategy as “endless lies and endless money. “.

PELOSI INSISTS DEMOCRATS SHOULD ‘CHANGE THAT TOPIC’ ON INFLATION IN LAST-WAR EFFORT TO ‘INSPIRE’ VOTERS

In recent media interviews, the Democrat dismissed polls showing that GOP-favored issues like the economy and crime are what voters care about most. Pelosi argued last week on MSNBC that abortion rights were still a major concern for the majority of women and independents.

For the Times, Pelosi also “challenged the idea that abortion was disappearing as a motor problem.”

“You think that. You’re going to think that,” she told Republicans. “I can tell you, it’s not in the rear view mirror.”

SAN FRANCISCO VOTERS WEIGH NANCY PELOSI’S STYLE AND SUBSTANCE, SHARE PRIORITIES AS MID-TERMS APPROACH

Record inflation and high gas prices made the economy the number one issue for a majority of voters. As the Supreme Court’s Dobbs ruling made abortion a higher priority with some voters, Republicans have reclaimed the edge they had months ago, leading with 2.2% voters on average, according to Real Clear Politics.

Pelosi urged Democrats to change the subject, dismissing inflation as a “global phenomenon.”

“Fighting isn’t about inflation,” she said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” show on Sunday. Pelosi added that his party should focus on “cost of living” and “getting the vote”.

When host Margaret Brennan asked if she planned to stay on as a speaker, Pelosi declined to answer.
