Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reportedly made a statement regarding his predictions for the November midterm elections on Thursday, saying, “I think there’s probably a greater likelihood the House flips than the Senate.”

Many have taken to social media to express their disagreement and disapproval of the senator’s comments — viewing them not only as a poor read of Republican candidates running for Senate seats across the country — but also as a negatively discouraging comment made by someone lucky enough to enjoy leadership status within the GOP.

McConnell’s view of the GOP’s chances of success immediately sparked fire from the left, with Democrats taking to social media in an attempt to mock the Republican leader.

One Twitter user wrote in response to NBC News reporter Frank Thorp’s post:

McConnell’s negative words about the GOP are not illustrative of someone who should be aiding the party and seem more like a putdown. This isn’t the first time he, who many on the right refer to as a RINO (Republican In Name Only), has appeared to betray his own coalition.

Following the United States Capitol protest on January 6th, 2020, McConnell came out against former President Donald Trump’s actions leading up to the controversial moments on Capitol Hill.

A month following the events, McConnell remarked that, “Former President Trump’s actions that preceded the riot were a disgraceful, disgraceful dereliction of duty,” he even went further to say, “Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day,” CNN reported.

Therefore, it is without question McConnell has done much more to tear down the GOP than to help build it up — because within this weakened party, he attains higher status and greater power.

On the bright side, true Republicans — many hand-selected Trump-backed America First Senate candidates in particular– have been doing significantly well in their races throughout the nation.

For instance, Blake Masters, Kelly Tshibaka, Herschel Walker, and J.D. Vance, all appear to be on their way to victory in November.


While most of Mcconnell’s statements ring false, his predictions regarding the Republican candidates for Congress appearing up and down ballot, are looking like they’ll come true. With many even setup for astronomical blowouts against their RINO or Democrat opponents.

The hopeful candidates continue to be ignored by the media, those on the left, and RINO’s within the GOP’s own ranks.

This strategy does not appear to be working. As momentum continues to build for these conservative candidates, their enemies continue to do anything they can to bring their campaigns down, but as of today they’ve been unable to achieve much success.
