President Donald Trump might be unpopular, but he "is winning and the Democrats right now are reeling" and have "not figured out how to succeed in the Trump era," NBC host Chuck Todd said Sunday.
"The announced retirement of supreme court justice Anthony Kennedy this week helped make one political reality clear: Despite his overall unpopularity, President Trump is winning and the Democrats right now are reeling," Todd stated in his opening "Meet the Press" monologue.
"How about the Republican Party? The president's approval rating among Republicans is around 90 percent. Elected Republicans fear criticizing him, and the party has become a cult of personality: His.
". . . If the Democrats' reaction to the Kennedy retirement proved anything, it's that the Democratic Party has not figured out how to succeed in the Trump era."
Todd did suggest, though, there could be a tide to turn against President Trump.
"Still, much of Mr. Trump's success is superficial," Todd said. "While he's more popular among Republicans, the party overall is shrinking. His trade war, North Korea, or the [Robert] Mueller investigation all could turn against him and, frankly, turn against him now like North Korea has."
