Ed Rollins: There Will Be No Blue Wave, Republicans Will Hold The House And Senate

|

Candace Owens and veteran Republican strategist Ed Rollins discuss conservative claims of social media censorship and the 2018 midterms on Sunday Morning Futures with host Maria Bartiromo.

"There's no blue wave out there," Rollins predicted. "The Senate, which we had big opportunities, have not turned out to be quite so. There's probably five to eight Senate seats on both sides that are in play. I think we will hold the Senate, and I think we will hold the House. Margins may be smaller in the House, but it's certainly going to hold it."

Rollins said no president has dominated the media, cable news, and social media like President Trump. He said media companies see his influence as a "threat."





"No president, no candidate has ever dominated the media, both the cable news, the social media, what have you," Rollins said Sunday morning. "He understands it well. His people understand it well. And I think to a certain extent, they see it as a threat."

ED ROLLINS: REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST: Well, equally as important -- and a lot of people said the social media that he used, this tweeting and what have you, was detrimental to him. It was not at all.

He's dominated the -- the last two-and-a-half years. No president, no candidate has ever dominated the media, both the cable news, the social media, what have you. He understands it well. His people understand it well.

And I think to a certain extent, they see it as a threat. Every day, people are sitting there waiting for his tweet to respond one way or the other. And if all of a sudden, it's a one-sided game in which you stop the people who are supportive of him, then it's not -- it's not fair and it's certainly a violation of those people's rights...

MARIA BARTIROMO: Nobody knows the elections better than you.

What are you seeing in terms of the midterm elections, Ed Rollins? Go. And we have got 80 days left.

ROLLINS: Well, there's a lot that is going to happen in the next 80 days.

Historically, the last 21 midterm elections, the president's party has lost 30 -- 30 seats and four Senate seats. That's not going to happen. I will predict that right today.

BARTIROMO: Really?

ROLLINS: We may lose five. We may lose 10. You are going to lose some seats just because of the makeup of the Congress.

But it's not -- there's no blue wave out there. The Senate, which we had big opportunities, have not turned out to be quite so. There's probably five to eight Senate seats on both sides that are in play. I think we will hold the Senate, and I think we will hold the House.

Margins may be smaller in the House, but it's certainly going to hold it.
