NBC’s Chuck Todd discussed new NBC polls on Sunday showing President Biden’s approval rating has increased, adding that he “got a lift simply from the presence of Donald Trump.”

Todd said it was “remarkable” how Biden “even managed” to achieve a 45% approval rating in Sunday’s NBC poll, noting that the president had little approval on several key issues, such as the border crisis, the economy and the cost of living.

“So what’s happening?” asked Todd. “One of them is, of course, Dobbs’ decision, it clearly gives voters energy and not just Democrats. Only 37% of people approve of the Supreme Court’s decision to undo Roe, 61% disapprove of that decision. a lift from just the presence of Donald Trump.”

Todd said the investigation into former President Donald Trump prevented Republicans from “turning the midterm elections into a referendum on Mr. Biden.”

The NBC poll found that 54% of voters have negative feelings toward Trump, compared to 34% with positive feelings.

Todd added that both sides ran the campaigns they wanted to run.

“Republicans, on crime, economics and immigration, and they’re winning that battle with the voters. Democrats are running on Mr. Trump and abortion rights, and they’re winning that battle with the voters,” he said.

According to a Quinnipiac poll, the president’s approval rating hit an all-time low at 31% in late July. In August, a Reuters/Ipsos survey found that 40% of Americans approve of Biden’s work as president.
