NBC’s Chuck Todd Warns That Democrats Are In ‘Grave Danger’ Of Losing Congress In 2022
On Sunday, NBC News host Chuck Todd again sounded the alarm for Democrats, saying they are in “grave danger” of losing big in the 2022 midterm elections, particularly with respect to Republicans regaining control of the House.
It’s at least the second time in recent days that Todd set the alarm bells ringing. On Halloween, Todd said that 2022 was looking “scary” for the left – and that was before their total meltdown in Virginia just days later.
Todd made his remarks on “Meet the Press.”
MSNBC's Chuck Todd: Last week's elections were "a warning to Democrats that their Congressional majorities are in grave danger."

Todd: ‘If you look at it from coast-to-coast, it was a warning to the Democrats that their Congressional majorities are in grave danger’
Todd opened the show, saying, “What happened to Democrats on Tuesday goes far beyond the defeat of Terry McAuliffe in Virginia, or Governor Phil Murphy’s narrow escape in New Jersey.”
“If you look at it from coast-to-coast, it was a warning to the Democrats that their Congressional majorities are in grave danger,” Todd observed.
Todd then broke down some of last Tuesday’s election results.
“Terry McAuliffe fell a net 12.5 points off Mr. Biden’s 2020 victory in that state,” Todd noted. “Even in victory, Governor Phil Murphy’s net loss in New Jersey compared to what Biden got in 2020 was roughly 13 points.”
“Kind of familiar,” Todd said. “So what happened?”
Todd wondered what Democrats might be doing wrong.
“Was the standoff between progressives and moderates partly to blame? Probably,” Todd said. “Did President Biden misread his mandate? Many Democrats think he did.”
Todd continued, “Was the public’s sense that the country was on the wrong track a factor? Clearly, that said, on Friday, Mr. Biden followed up the Democratic drubbing with one of the best days he’s had in office yet. A strong October employment report with over a half-million jobs added in a month, best showing since July, and the House passage, finally, of the long-delayed trillion-dollar bipartisan infrastructure bill, which, of course, is one of the pillars of the president’s agenda.”
In a new NBC News poll, 71% of Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction. "It’s the economy that’s driving it more than anything else,” @chucktodd says on #SundayTODAY. pic.twitter.com/cedbUWTRCD

Todd: ‘Republicans are partying like it’s 2009’
Yet Todd still warned, “Still, as Democrats pick through the rubble of Tuesday’s election, Republicans are partying like it’s 2009.”
“Democrats are sounding alarm bells, worried a toxic national environment could cost them control of Congress in midterm elections next year,” Todd concluded.
NBC’s top host also told a similar story to TMJ4 in Milwaukee.
