New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) gave left-wing NBC host Chuck Todd a reality check about the priorities of the American people during a Sunday appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
While questioning why more Americans are not concerned about supposed threats to democracy, Todd asked the moderate Republican governor why he supports “an election denialist.”
The NBC News host was referring to Donald Bolduc, who is the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, who has raised questions about the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
Responding to Todd, Sununu pointed out that the very premise of his question exposes his disconnect from the priorities of average Americans.
“Let me tell you, you’re in a bubble, man. 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,” the Republican governor said.
“I know the press loves to talk about it,” Sununu added, explaining: “People are talking about what is happening in their pocketbooks every single day when they have to buy groceries or fill up gas.”

Of course, Todd was not convinced, and continued to push the Democrat narrative of the supposed dangers of questioning elections.
“You think this should be prioritized over election denialism?” the left-wing news anchor asked.
“Of course. Oh, my gosh, Chuck, this is hitting people,” Sununu clapped back.
“They’re having trouble paying their mortgage,” he explained. “They’re having trouble making car payments because of bad policies out of Washington. Should they be? Look, the beauty of the American system is every voter has the right and almost the responsibility to be selfish with their vote — to vote in terms of what is best for their family, to have better choice for schools, better economic opportunity.”
When Todd once again tried to push back, Sununu acknowledged that election security is a “serious issue” — but made it clear that the issue will not effect the outcome of the upcoming midterms.
“When you’re talking about what folks are going to be voting on this November — what the top priority issues are — it’s inflation, the economy, getting those things under control,” he said.
Nearly every poll confirms Sununu’s assertions — that Americans are more concerned about actual issues that affect their everyday lives, such as the economy, rather than supposed “election denial.” New polls from institutions including Gallup, ABC News, Reuters and NBC News have revealed that Americans’ top concern is the economy.
