Halperin: Republicans Will Take the Senate
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Time magazine's senior political analyst Mark Halperin asserted that Republicans would take back the Senate.
Halperin was asked by MSNBC’s Willie Geist whether Republicans would take the Senate in the 2014 elections.
“Today they do, and I’d still think that something has to change for them not to take the Senate,” he said confidently.
The political panel examined Larry Sabato’s Politico magazine column on the momentum that Republicans were gaining ahead of the 2014 elections.
Sabato is the director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics.
“Put it all together, and the current forecast calls for a wave that's more than a ripple but less than a tsunami - a four to eight-seat addition for the Republicans, with the higher end of the range being a shade likelier,” he wrote.
