Now We Get to See if Rubio Was Right
Sen. Marco Rubio has predicted a “red wave” in Tuesday’s midterms, never mind the polls or the Democrats' supreme confidence.
“When those numbers started coming in, we’d never seen anything like it,” Rubio added. “Forget about a blue wave. A red wave of votes started coming in, and it proved all the pundits wrong in 2016. That’s what’s gonna happen again now.”
Rubio also encouraged his Twitter followers to vote in the midterms.
“Like 2016, this will be decided by those who vote on Election Day,” he wrote in a tweet Monday.
Democrats are projected to flip the House in their favor while Republicans are expected to hold onto their razor-thin Senate majority, according to most forecasts.
FiveThirtyEight gives Democrats a seven in eight chance of winning the House and Republicans a five in six chance of retaining the Senate. It also predicts that 24 states will have Democratic governors and 26 will have Republican ones at the end of the night.
