CNN to Democrats: Stop Thinking About a Blue Wave. It’s Not Going to Happen.

"But you know the idea of a blue wave, stop thinking about that. I don't think it's going to happen," CNN's Jeff Zeleny said on Sunday.

CNN’s Jeff Zeleny said that Democrats should stop thinking about a “blue wave” this election cycle, adding that “it’s not going to happen,” during a panel discussion on “Inside Politics” on Sunday.

CNN’s John King highlighted a recent Washington Post poll that showed Democrats with a seven-point lead over Republicans on a generic ballot, saying that that could translate into a 20 to 28-seat swing. With Democrats needing 23 seats to retake control of the House, King said, “That’s right there on the edge.”

“It’s completely on the edge,” Zeleny said, adding that many people are surprised with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) recent confidence that Democrats would retake the House.

“I look at places in the middle of the country in those new Trump states. Look at Iowa, look at Michigan, look at Wisconsin. A couple races I’ll be watching on Tuesday are the Iowa races,” Zeleny said. “If Democrats win both of those, it seems very difficult for Republicans to hold the majority.”

“But you know the idea of a blue wave, stop thinking about that. I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Zeleny added.
