The midterm elections are inching closer.
And everyone wants to know who is up and who is down.
Then Rush Limbaugh stepped up and made a jaw dropping prediction about what will happen in November.
Sean Hannity interviewed Rush Limbaugh for his Fox News program.
The topic of discussion quickly turned to the midterms.
Hannity pressed Limbaugh on what he thought would happen.
Limbaugh shocked viewers by predicting the Republicans would hold the House and grow their Senate majority.
Fox News reports:
Rush Limbaugh, in an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, predicted Republicans will hold both houses of Congress next month – defying the Washington wisdom that Nancy Pelosi is in line for speaker.
“We hold the House and increase the Senate,” the conservative talk radio host predicted in an interview set to air Thursday night on Fox News’ “Hannity” at 9 p.m. ET.
He added, “I think the Democrat Party deserves to lose in the biggest single electoral landslide defeat in my lifetime because of the actions they’ve taken just in the last month.”
The party out of power in the White House historically picks up seats in the first post-presidential midterms. And polling has suggested 2018 will be no different — showing an environment that still favors Democrats. Democrats hold an 11-point lead on Republicans on a generic congressional ballot, according to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll.
This outcome would defy history.
America has seen wave elections in 1994, 2006, 2010 and 2014 where control of one or both Houses of Congress changed hands.
But the Democrat Party so overplayed their hands in resisting Donald Trump that the GOP base is reaching new levels of enthusiasm to vote.
The polls show Democrats are set to gain seats, but they have not yet locked down victory.
