On Sunday morning’s Meet the Press, Chuck Todd explained the findings of a recent NBC News poll on voter satisfaction regarding the current state of the country and President Biden’s current job rating and perceived competency. These numbers did not look good for Biden, especially the percentage of voters with concerns that Biden did “not have the necessary mental and physical health to be president.” He didn’t dwell on that fact long before looking to former President Trump.

Todd opened the segment with a statistic on voters’ perception of whether or not “this country’s headed in the right direction.” According to the poll, 74 percent of people believed that “the nation is on the wrong track,” while a mere 20 percent thought it was going in the right direction.
