On Monday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, NBC chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd reacted to the news of polling data that shows 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney would defeat President Barack Obama if the head-to-head match-up were held today.
Todd explained this was a larger indicator that the country as a whole has grown fatigued of Obama, but did not this fatigue to Democratic Party as a whole.
“It’s all about the president,” Todd said. “You know his average job rating in the competitive senate races is 38 percent? This is a country that is fatigued from this president – that in some ways, the more foreign policy problems that pop up, you see in the poll numbers, you see a lack of confidence in him. So to me those polls are more reflective of Obama the person and the president. It says nothing about the state of, for instance, either party.”
