‘You Are In A Bubble’: GOP NH Gov. Slams Chuck Todd For Saying Voters Should Care More About ‘Election Denial’ Than Inflation | Eastern North Carolina Now

    New Hampshire Republican Governor Chris Sununu traded barbs with NBC News's Chuck Todd over what voters should prioritize this election cycle.

    Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday, Sununu was asked to explain his support for U.S. Senate candidate Don Bolduc, a Republican running to represent New Hampshire whom Todd labeled an "election denialist."

    Sununu fired back, slamming Todd as out-of-touch for suggesting voters should emphasize the 2020 election results and so-called "threats to democracy" over heating their homes this winter or putting food on the table.

    "Why are you supporting an election denialist, and do you think the inflation issue is enough to sort of rationalize support for somebody who thinks [that way]?" Todd asked.

    "I love you, Chuck, but you are in a bubble if you think anybody is talking about what happened in 2020 or talking about Mar-a-Lago and all that," Sununu replied. "I know the press loves to talk about it, but people are talking about what is happening in their pocketbooks every single day, when they have to buy groceries, or fill up gas."

    "Look I get that Governor," Todd cut in. "Should they be?"

    "Should they be?" Sununu shot back, visibly taken aback. "Of course! Oh my gosh, Chuck, this is hitting people, they're having trouble paying their mortgage, they're having trouble making car payments because of bad policies out of Washington. Should they be?"

    "The beauty of the American system is that every voter has the right, and almost the responsibility, to be selfish with their vote, to vote for what is best for themselves and their family," he continued. "That's exactly what's going to happen in a week...because frankly, folks that think the average voter is worried about 2020, it's a serious issue, of course, but it's not what people are going to be voting on in the next week."

    Pressed on the question again, Sununu stressed that "threats to democracy" are important issues that need to be addressed, but voters should absolutely be concerned with more pressing local issues and the economy.

    "It's 35 degrees out [in New England]," Sununu said. "Folks are filling up their 270-gallon [home heating oil] tanks, and it's costing them ($1200-$1300). Kerosene is limited because there's no incentive to create more natural gas or more fuel for this country, and that should be our priority: keeping people warm this winter."

    Even in NBC News's own polling, Americans were more likely to say that economic issues and inflation were the country's most pressing concerns. According to an NBC News poll conducted earlier this month, a combined choice of 35% of Americans considered "jobs and the economy" as one of the most important issues; another 29% said it was the "cost of living." Just 30% considered "threats to democracy" a pressing issue.

Since only about 20% of the News Media has any shred of Journalistic Integrity remaining: How does our Constitutional Republic continue without a "Free Press"?
  Demand real information, using real sources, backed up by facts.
  Promote real journalist entities only, and admonish those that prostitute their profession.
  We Democratic Socialists are doing just fine, thank-you, by promoting lies while having very little real knowledge about so much.

The Democrat leadership has made constant, profound and incredible pronouncements that one's supportive vote for Republicans is tantamount to surrendering Democracy forever. Understanding their sincere thinking in their extreme position: How will you still vote on this election day?
  Democrat; because the continuance of this Democracy from the existential threat of extreme Republicans is paramount.
  Republican; the process of having a choice is the democratic method within what so called "Democracy" does exists.
  For the best candidate; and to be clear: This Constitutional Republic /this Representative Republic is not a Democracy, and never has been.
