Ann Curry talked Chuck Todd about how the economy is effect the presidential race and Congressional races.

Todd said, “If the election were held today, the likelihood the Democrats would get their 60-seat filibuster about 50%, unbelievable. They could pick up more Senate seats than they did in 2006. More house seats than they did in 2006, which, even three weeks ago folks thought was just impossible to think about. That’s how bad things are right now for Republicans. Every day that the Dow has one of these bad days, Republicans see their tracking polls plummet, literally is almost a percentage point for percentage point in this drop in the Dow is, also, the percentage drop for Republicans.”
