This development comes days ahead of the off-year November election, which includes the governor's race in Virginia and one year out from the midterm elections.  

"We have a brand-new NBC News poll out this morning that's filled with some scary news for the Democrats. The overarching message: Americans have lost their confidence in President Biden and their optimism for the country. At least, they have right now," Todd said.

"Just 22% of adults say we're headed in the right direction. A shocking 71% say we're on the wrong track and that includes a near majority of Democrats, who are saying that. President Biden's approval rating stands at a dismal 42%, versus 54% who disapprove," the moderator said.  

As per NBC News, around 1,000 adults, 650 of whom were reached only by cellphone, were included in the survey between October 23 and 26.
