House Speaker Nancy Pelosi denied recent polling showing rising crime and rising prices are the top issues to voters this November — joining President Biden in trying to turn the focus to abortion rights.

A New York Times-Siena College poll released Monday showed the economy and inflation were the most important issues to a combined 44% of likely voters — part of a larger shift toward Republicans just three weeks before Election Day.

When MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell cited the poll during an interview with Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday, the House speaker wasn’t having it.

“Much of what you’ve said I don’t agree with,” Pelosi, one of the richest members of Congress, told Mitchell. “The New York Times poll, I think, is an outlier poll.”
