McConnell is playing a dangerous game.
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell continues to sow the seed of doubt in the minds of the Republican party and voter base by continuing to claim that the GOP only has a 50-50 chance of taking over the Senate following the November midterm elections.
McConnell has been showing major doubts in the Republican Party after several Trump-endorsed candidates have won their elections and he said that these Trump’s candidates “lack quality.”
Many believe that McConnell is just jealous because Trump has a stronger grip on the GOP than he does.
According to Newsmax, McConnell said, “Flipping the Senate, what are the chances? It’s a 50-50 proposition. We’ve got a 50-50 Senate right now. We’ve got a 50-50 nation. And I think the outcome is likely to be very, very close either way.”
McConnell then said, “If both the House and the Senate flip, I think the president will be a moderate. He won’t have any choice. And so, we’ll try to find ways to make some progress for the country during the last two years of his term … but not big dramatic change.”
Later on McConnell said, “Election fraud, there is some. It happens occasionally. But our democracy is solid. And of the things we need to worry about, I wouldn’t be worried about that one.
