Mark Levin: ‘It’s simple arithmetic.’ There was never going to be a ‘red wave.’

November 14, 2022 | Melissa Fine

While Republicans are busy pointing fingers and assigning blame for the disappointing GOP midterm results, “Life, Liberty & Levin” host Mark Levin was doing the math, and according to him, a “red wave” was — regardless of what polls predicted — “mathematically impossible.”

“I noticed that many of the same people who were wrong about a red wave are now telling us what to think about a non-red wave,” the Fox News host said on Sunday. ‘The experts, the consultants, the ruling class, the media, the politicians. We need to think for ourselves, enough of the static.”

“I said before the election, and I said repeatedly here and on radio: Forget about the red wave. Forget about a red tsunami. Forget about Armageddon and vote,” he stated.

It’s simple arithmetic, the host explained.

This cycle, there were 34 seats up for re-election in the Senate. Republicans had to defend 20 of them, and to take the majority, they would have had to “tap into” 14 Democrat-held seats.

“That was a tall hill to climb,” Levin said. “And this is one of the reasons I wasn’t on this red-wave bandwagon so fast. I needed to think about it. 2024. This is the key.”

If a red wave is ever to transpire, the host explained, it will happen in two years’ time.

“The next election cycle, 33 seats are up,” Levin said. “Now, listen to this. Two-thirds of them are Democrat seats. So the Democrats have to defend 23 Senate seats. The Republicans have to defend only ten.”

“So,” he continued, “the math in 2022 never really led to a red wave possibility and the math in 2024, it does lead to a red wave possibility.”
