The midterm election is just days away.
But the Democrats think they have it in the bag.
And Nancy Pelosi made a prediction that could come back to bite her.
Pelosi appeared on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert and guaranteed the Democrats would take back the House of Representatives.
Appearing on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that “up until today, I would’ve said, ‘If the election were held today, we would win.’”
“What now I’m saying is, ‘We will win, we will win,'” Pelosi announced.
Colbert, recalling Democrats’ belief that Hillary Clinton would win in 2016, warned Pelosi against overconfidence. But the longtime Democratic leader insisted that her party is primed to retake the House and perhaps score other victories in Senate and gubernatorial races across the country.
“We’re just walking precincts, and if everyone votes, we’ll have even a bigger victory,” Pelosi said. “But Democrats will carry the House. If we have a bigger victory, the Senate, governorships. It’s going to be a great night for America.”
Democrats are favored to do well in the election.
They should pick up seats.
And election forecasting guru Nate Silver gives the Democrats an 86 percent chance of taking back the House.
But these were the same odds Hillary Clinton had in 2016.
And everyone knows how that turned out.
