Our Pollsters Are Concerned...

BRIAN WILLIAMS, HOST: Now we turn to our new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. Some bad news for the President tied to some very bad feeling about the current state of our economy. Our political director and chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd here with us in California for tomorrow night’s debate with a look at the numbers.

CHUCK TODD, NBC: "Look, quite a backdrop being painted for this important week in American politics. The debate tomorrow night, the President’s speech to Congress on Thursday. Here’s what all of them are facing. Mood of the country: 73 percent say it’s on the wrong track. That’s three out of four Americans who believe it’s on the wrong track. Why? Obviously, it’s the economy. Listen to this: about three out of four – 72 percent – say we have a ways to go before we hit bottom.

Now this has taken a hit on the President politically. 44 percent approve of the job he’s doing – all-time low of his presidency. But a more important number that our pollsters say is in there is this idea that is this a long-term setback for him or a short-term one? 54 percent said long-term. Our pollsters are concerned that’s kind of numbers you have when the public starts to give up on a president as a problem solver."

Hmmm, why the concern if they are simply supposed to report data?

The sentiment of the country with 73 percent saying "it’s on the wrong track "was also being expressed at 70% under Bush during his second term—BEFORE the financial crisis hit. I think what's underplayed now, due to the bad economy, which I admit is the top issue, is the unpopularity of the wars. Yet the Establisment Rs keep harping about Iran.

I posted this mainly because of the tell-tale remark of Chuck Todd "Our pollsters are concerned..."

Why the concern other than the disappointment of the polling data reflecting a negative reaction to the WH and its agenda? Shouldn't it be Obama who's "concerned", and not the pollsters at NBC?

Nyah, there's no bias in the media.
