Nancy Pelosi made a somewhat ambiguous statement regarding the upcoming election. She said the Democrats would win if the elections were held today. Today, we would beat the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives, emphasizing that there are no assumptions. Every new day is a new opportunity to win, but also to move forward again and further, even if the result is not favorable. There, she meant the results of the 2016 elections, saying that no day is regrettable even after the defeat, that is a lesson.
What did Pelosi mean by this?
Optimism even after a possibly bad day?
"I know we will increase our numbers in the House, not because it's a swing of the pendulum, but because we have excellent candidates, wonderful Members of Congress running for re-election. We've mobilized at the grassroots level.
So, we are quite excited, poised to – I always like to be ready weeks in advance. You know, I’m a former Chair of the party, I love government because of policy, I thrive on politics in the campaigns, so I’m watching this all very closely. Just win, don't agonize. I say that when they agonize: we don't agonize, we organize. And that's what we're doing."
