Considering that the economy and inflation are among the top concerns for voters, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., stated on Sunday that Democrats need to “change that subject” on inflation if they want to avoid a dismal midterm result for their party.
On CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Pelosi responded when questioned about the Democrats’ last-ditch efforts to mobilize supporters ahead of Election Day on November 8. With just over two weeks until election day, host Margaret Brennan referenced a CBS poll indicating that Republicans will win a majority in the House with a total of 224 seats and asked Pelosi if Democrats have a strategy to change the tide.
Pelosi reiterated that her party is “confident” that the midterm elections would turn out well and said she is “extremely delighted” with the early voting numbers. Pelosi said it’s time for her party’s midterm candidates to rebrand the Republican-dominated topic to “inspire” more Democratic voters because the electoral impact of inflation is difficult to dispute.
We need to change the topic, Pelosi responded when she overheard someone discussing inflation. “Inflation is a worldwide occurrence. We have lower inflation than the European Union, the United Kingdom, and the British people. She argued that the issue wasn’t inflation. It has to do with the expense of living.

She explained to Brennan that the goal was to turn out the vote. “Compared to that, everything else is just a discussion.” But you need inspiration in order to do that. You can’t go on fumes.
Pelosi praised her party for presenting measures to lower the cost of prescription drugs and electricity as part of its attempts to “lower the cost of life.”

“If you look at what we have done to bring down the cost of prescription drugs, to bring down the cost of energy and the rest of our legislation, you will see that it has been opposed by the Republicans at every step of the way, and they have no plan for lowering the cost of living or helping with inflation,” she said.
The economy and inflation are the top concerns for Americans, and they trust Republicans more than Democrats to handle these issues, according to recent polls from the New York Times and Associated Press, which showed significant gains for Republicans in the forthcoming elections.
