James Carville: Chances of a Blue Wave ‘Dissipating’

Political pundit James Carville lamented the performance of Democrats on MSNBC Tuesday night, expressing concern that the blue wave was “dissipating.”

“Tonight, there was some hope that the Democrats would have a wave election,” Carville said. “It’s not going to be a wave election. It could still be a good election.”

As MSNBC looked at the returns from Florida — where Republicans Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis currently lead in their races for the Senate and governorship, respectively — Carville said he was “a little more optimistic about Florida than it’s turned out to be.”

“I think we’re in for a nail biter in a lot of places here tonight,” added the famed Democratic strategist. “Hopefully the Democrats get the House back.”

“The aspiration they’d pick up a lot of seats, doesn’t seem like it’s come into fruition, a lot of them will be close,” he continued. “There’s still a good chance that the Democrats win the House, but I see the chances of a wave kind of dissipating every time I see something on the board.”

“I went into this morning feeling really almost confident, almost to the point of being cocky about Florida, I no longer have that feeling,” Carville added.
