In an attempt to shift the narrative and prop up Democrats, the mainstream media buried poll numbers showing House Republicans’ message IS working. A new NBC News poll shows that voters trust Republicans more than Democrats by DOUBLE DIGITS on the economy, crime, and border security. BIDEN’S ECONOMIC CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:
