Friday on PBS’s “NewsHour,” former President Bill Clinton predicted the Democrats will do better than expected in the November midterm election saying, “I think we have a slightly better than 50 percent chance” to hold the Democratic-controlled Senate.
Clinton said, “It is a question of whether the Democrats can get over their primary disability as a political party which is we can produce in a presidential race but not a midterm.”
“I think we have a slightly better than 50 percent chance to hold the Congress. I still think we can win in Georgia and Kentucky. We’re now competitive in Kansas, and we have to, I think — we have a great chance to win in North Carolina. I think we’re now going to hold Michigan, and I believe we’ll win in Iowa, and I think Mark and Mary Landrieu will win. So I’m not with the skeptics. I think we are going to do better then the skeptics think.”
