Chris Wallace has become one of Joe Biden’s biggest defenders on Fox News.
But polls show Donald Trump gaining ground in key battleground states in the final days of the campaign.
And now Chris Wallace gave one election prediction that made Trump ask what happened.
It’s not just the Presidency at stake today.
Control of the United States Senate is on the ballot as well.
Currently Republicans hold a four seat 51 to 47 majority.
Democrats need to flip four seats outright to win control of the Senate and install Chuck Schumer as Majority Leader.
On Fox News,Chris Wallace suggested that Democrats may have to put their dreams of a Senate Majority on hold because it would take a blue wave landslide on par with what Ronald Reagan won in 1980 to flip the Senate.
“All of those are really close races,” Wallace stated. “You would need a blue wave. You would need all of the races that are too close to call right now going Democratic for them to take control of the Senate. That could happen. It has happened in some presidential elections. But it’s certainly no sure thing.”
Wallace tried to hedge for his Democrat fans and quoted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell saying the GOP had a 50/50 shot to keep the Senate.
“I think 50/50 is a pretty honest description of the odds at this point,” Wallace said. “Which means there’s as good a chance that the Democrats are going to take control of the Senate as that the Republicans will maintain control.”
Current polling shows the Democrats are favored to flip Republican-held seats in Arizona, Colorado and Maine because the Republican incumbents are Never Trump RINOS that fail to inspire the GOP base.
In North Carolina, Democrat Cal Cunningham led Republican incumbent Thom Tillis, butCunningham’s sex scandal has come out where he allegedly cheated on his wife with a woman married to a fellow veteran.
Cunningham’s status as a member of the Army Reserves also might invite sanctions because adultery goes against the military code of conduct.
But Republicans are heavily favored to see challenger Tommy Tuberville oust Democrat Senator Doug Jones.
Republican Senator Joni Ernst’s seat in Iowa remains a tossup as does the presidential race in Iowa.
If Donald Trump wins Iowa, Ernst will likely win as well.
If Biden wins, Democrat Theresa Greenfield will likely flip the seat.
Democrats thought they had a chance to win Republican seats in Montana, Kansas, Alaska and South Carolina, but current polling suggests the Republicans lead in both of those races.
Georgia features two Senate races because state law dictated that Kelly Loeffler run for the remaining two years of Johnny Isakson’s term after Isakson retired last year.
If no candidate gets 50 percent in the general election – which is especially likely in Loeffler’s race since it is essentially a primary with multiple candidates from both parties on the ballot at the same time – there will be a January runoff.
Georgia could see two runoffs in January, but President Trump carrying Georgia could allow Republican incumbent David Perdue to reach 50 percent in his race against Democrat Jon Ossoff and avoid a runoff.
However in recent weeks, polling in the Michigan and Minnesota Senate races – both of which feature Democrat incumbents – trended in the Republican challengers’ – John James in Michigan and Jason Lewis in in Minnesota – direction.
If Donald Trump wins one or both of those states, the GOP will likely flip another Democrat-held seat and close off any path to a Democrat Senate majority.
