Jake Tapper: ‘This Is Not a Blue Wave’


The blue wave? Not going to happen, says one of the premier anchors on television.

Shortly after 9:00 p.m. ET on CNN’s coverage, Jake Tapper — anchor of The Lead — said Tuesday’s early results looked very good for Republicans.

“It’s possible that the Democrats will regain control of the House today,” Tapper said. “But I have to say, when you look at what’s going on here tonight, this is not a blue wave. This is not a wave that is knocking out all sorts of Republican incumbents.”

Tapper added that some of the key early results for Republicans came in states carried by President Donald Trump.

“It does look as though Republicans have been able to build something of a wall in certain parts of the country — especially in these states that President Trump won.”
