Fox’s Chris Wallace Says White House Can’t ‘Spin’ a Split Election: ‘Bad Night’ if Trump ‘Loses the House’

‘I have to laugh a little bit at the idea that if the election ends up being split, that the White House is going to spin it as “Trump is the savior of the Senate”‘

EXCERPT:

WALLACE: "As Chris Van Hollen said on Fox News Sunday, there is a narrow path. But this has always been a really tough year for the Democrats. The Democrats are defending 26 seats. Republicans are defending only nine. Just do the odds there. The chances that Democrats are going to lose seats are much greater than the Republicans will. I have to laugh a little bit at the idea that, well, if the election ends up being split, that the White House is going to spin it as Trump is the savior of the Senate. No, he will have lost the House. There is no way they will be able to spin it as anything other than that. He has done a good job. He has mobilized the base. I think he has done very well in a lot of these close Senate races, and may actually add to his majority. You could argue the Senate is more important to him than the House because of the fact that you get your nominations for cabinet positions, for the court, exclusively through the Senate. But if he loses the house, it’s going to have been a bad night for the President."
