election eve, what could go wrong? it expecting everything runs smoothly. >> well, the only thing that could go wrong my coffee maker we need the caffeine. it's going to be a long night and likely running may be days and weeks. you know, until they get the final count, some of these places. yeah, that's right. it's it's it's worth reminding ourselves and everyone who's watching that, you know what a lot of states is going to take them some number of days to count these ballots that are coming in large batches these days before the eights, right, counting in some cases doesn't even start until the night. so it could be some number of days. that's the need for cathy. >> do expect the democrats to hold the house. what do you think's going to happen in the senate? what your your best guess of where things stand when all the votes are counted. >> i should have known you'd expect i came ready to i think republicans are going to win the house. i think they'll 20
5:33 pm
plus and i think it's i think that the chances of democrats holding the senate are decent. i think that i put a 50, 50 chance, not quincy, definitely of democrats holding the senate. i think some of those races are going to break democrats ways. >> it's so hard, you know, in the polls, you know that they're they're not always right. as we know. there's a prediction of a red wave and now it seems it may be democrats or climb back with some of the recent polls. what are we to believe? >> well, we don'teknow what to believe quite yet in part because we just never had this combination of big factors before. but here are some things that are are pretty tried and tested. and we know that the party out of office out of the white house tends to pick up seats in the that has happened. 22 out of 25 times in history. so we think we can count on that that we know biden's ratings are all on the low side, not as low as they have been, but we know that tends to be taken out on
5:34 pm
fellow candidates of the same party. and we know that a lot of these district redistricting redrawn this midterm cycle. so those are all over the plate and republican state on the democrat side. we know that in general public opinion is in for strong against the dobbs decision which repeal reversed roe v wade decision. and we know that president trump weighed in a lot of these primaries on the republican side in favor of picking, you know, republican candidates are pretty out of the mainstream for their states. so there's a few factors that we can put into equation and then weigh it. >> when when you talk about, you know, the kitchen table issues that people care about, obviously gas prices and the cost of everything with with inflation. but, you know, democrats then contend that democracy is on the ballot and you alluded to the abortion issue when the dust settles in some of these real battleground races, which do you think prevails?
5:35 pm
>> well, i think in general kitchen table issues are going to prevail. they seemed to have been a rising in salient in the focus groups i've been watching in the last few days in these really key states. but i do think that issues like maybe some issue sort side dishes, if you will, like plase a marginal role in some races. so >> that whole democracy on the line. issue, which is super it appears everything i've read. the dems feel very strongly about it. but the numbers support that republicans are also obviously, they different viewpoints, but but it seems to be universal among americans that we have a lot on the line >> right. this is one of the fascinating of a thing that's of all last few months, a few weeks, few months. and that is it. what if you ask american, do you think democracy is in danger? you're more likely to get the answer? yes, from a
5:36 pm
the problem is, in most cases, what that means is that there are elections in so and dizzy asked to cause a political 3rd to hear that americans are worried about the state democracy. but then i just sort of want to throw my hands up in the air. when i hear it's because people think that they're, you know, that the voting machines have been tapped by china or, you know, whatever the conspiracy theory of the dais. >> is there anything that could happen tomorrow night? do you think that could compel trump or biden not to run again. >> i don't think anything would persuade donald trump not to run. i would for come pretty close to saying the same to joe biden. but yes, i think if there's a huge wipe out of democrats, not just america, lee, but also with the narrative is that the democratic agenda just is not selling anywhere around around the country that i i think president biden will have to have summer. thanks, ok, i'd be remiss if i didn't address
5:37 pm
this one factor here. the youth vote. it appears have been seeing in a lot of the swing. >> states that the youth vote is pretty impressive. did you expect this and where do you think it's going to take? take the ultimate vote? >> well, i tend i tend to just allow myself to be delighted, delighted and surprised by i tend to sort of going with fairly low expectations. but i have to say, as i think back to my class, the a classes last year, so young people are super engaged in politics and think about everything they've been through just in their short lives or everything they seen. >> you know, maybe maybe it we can allow ourselves to be a little bit more optimistic about gen z really coming in and making itself heard. and it is the largest generation in american history. even bigger than baby boomers. yeah. keeping an eye on them. >> i imagine everybody in your class better be. >> wearing one of those little stickers. did it. well, are getting credit for it. so this
