Nancy Pelosi has a history of saying outlandish things.
And the pressure to be over the top is on when Democrat politicians are acting like celebrities while doing the late-night talk show circuit.
But the Speaker of the House just made one jaw-dropping prediction that is leaving her fellow Democrats speechless.
Red wave, blue wave, no wave
Early in 2022 the Midterms looked like a red wave.
A landmark Supreme Court of the United States ruling and a RINO compromise on gun rights seemed to have diminished GOP prospects this November, as the corporate-controlled media started spinning the “Democrat comeback” narrative.
However, the polls have shifted again.
With less than five-weeks to go, while how the battle for control of the U.S. Senate will play out this November is really anyone’s guess – most political experts believe the GOP has a strong likelihood of winning the majority in the House.
The 2020 U.S. census moved some House seats around advantageous red states.
And while the GOP conceded some potential gains during redistricting in favor of incumbent protection maps, most insiders believe redistricting alone should net the GOP three to five House seats.
Republicans only need to net a five-seat net pickup to send Nancy Pelosi packing from the Speaker’s office.
Pelosi’s preposterous prediction
But Pelosi apparently remains optimistic about her party’s short-term future.
In fact, she’s downright bullish.
Instead of interviewing Robert Davi about his new hit movie, My Son Hunter, Speaker Pelosi was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert this week.
To the shock of most people who follow elections – while in the “hot seat” Pelosi predicted not only will Democrats retain their majority in the House, that they’ll actually add to their lead.
“I believe that we will hold the House,” Pelosi said to applause from the audience of woke zombies. “We will hold the House by winning more seats. We won the 40 seats, then we lost some when Trump was on the ballot. We lost some on the Trump districts. But we held enough seats to hold the House with him on the ballot. He’s not on the ballot now.”
Pelosi and Colbert then chuckled while joking about “he who shall not be named” like they were the stars in the next Harry Potter movie.
But even Colbert was taken back by Pelosi’s prediction – pointing out how tight the polling was and suggesting huge Democrat gains might not be plausible.
But the 82-year-old Representative from San Francisco doubled down.
She declared Joe Biden a “great President,” praising the “remarkable” job he has done in office – and citing that as the reason her party will sweep the Midterms.
“Working together, we’ve accomplished so much,” Pelosi added. “And that is beginning to have some appreciation . . . The President has done a remarkable job, and we have been proud.”
Realities on the ground
After a brief spike that brought him out of the mid 30’s in approval ratings, Biden’s RealClearPolitics average approval rating is a dismal 42% – and it’s been trending downward again in recent weeks.
Meanwhile, the generic Congressional ballot polling is following the same trendline.
Following a brief bump for Democrats, Republicans have retaken the advantage in the RealClearPolitics average of polling and they’re trending upward – now holding a full point lead.
It’s important to note, because of how the U.S. population is dispersed, typically, if the GOP is just close in the generic Congressional ballot they have a net increase in seats – they almost never lead in the metric.
However, in five out of the last six polls, and seven out of the last 10, they’ve had at least a single-point edge over the Democrats.
