OK SCHUMER: Chuck Says 'Dems Will Hold the Senate and Pick Up a Few Seats'

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.04.22

According to an interview with the Associated Press, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) believes that Democrats have a strong chance of retaining the majority — and maybe even picking up a few seats.

“It’s tight,” Schumer told the AP. “I believe Democrats will hold the Senate and maybe even pick up seats.”

“I don’t want to give the illusion that these are all slam dunks,” Schumer said, but “[t]he fact that we’re in the ballpark and our Democratic candidates are defying the political environment is a testament to a few things,” he said. “[Voters] are seeing how extreme these Republican candidates are and they don’t like it. And second, they’re seeing the Democrats are talking to them on issues they care about, and that we’ve accomplished a great deal on things.”

Mainstream media outlets have been attempting to cast doubt on positive GOP polls in recent weeks; ReidOut host Joy Reid says Republican-backed firms are intentionally flooding the media with polls.

“If you get past those headlines and dig a little deeper, you would uncover an insidious and seemingly intentional campaign from Republican-backed polling firms to flood the zone and tip the balance of polling averages in favor of their candidates, to create a narrative that Republicans are surging and that a red wave is imminent and inevitable,” MSNBC host Joy Reid said in a monologue on her show “The ReidOut” Monday.

Meanwhile, FiveThirtyEight’s most recent analysis now gives Republicans a 55% chance of taking the Senate.
