A blue wave of Democratic voters in the 2018 midterm elections has been predicted, by various pundits and partisans, to take away the Republican majority in Congress.
- “We are doing better now with jobs. Today there are more people working than at any time in the history of our country, so I don’t think there’s going to be a blue wave. I hope there’s a red wave.” -- Donald Trump, September 2018
