Democrats and many liberals in media think 2018 is going to be a big year for them. Lots of others disagree, including liberal billionaire Tom Steyer. During a recent appearance on CNBC, he warned that Democrats are overconfident and that they are facing an uphill battle in the midterms.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Steyer Warns ‘Overconfident’ Dems: 2018 ‘Going to Be a Very Tough Election’
Democratic mega-donor Tom Steyer said Friday that the economic gains occurring under the Trump administration will make 2018 a “very tough election” for Democrats…
“You’ll be up against that message from another famous Democratic operative, James Carville, that ‘it’s the economy, stupid,’” Quintanilla said. “Why aren’t you worried about that?”
“Listen, I think anybody who’s a Democrat and is overconfident about November 6, 2018, is wrong,” Steyer replied. “I agree with your point that this is going to be a very tough election.”
“This is going to be a hotly contested election. It’s going to be two dramatically different views of the country and our values,” he continued. “You talk about the stock market? The stock market basically benefits rich people, and so it is going to be highly contested. I completely agree with you, and I think anybody who is, you know, overconfident or taking anything for granted is wrong.”
