Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, predicts optimistically that a blue wave will be avoided in 2018 thanks to the robust economic climate, according to a Tuesday Politico report.
“The great blue wall has crashed,” Kudlow told Politico. “I think GOP will lose seats but keep the House.”
Kudlow was unconcerned about the GOP’s unpopular tax bill, stagnant wages and the cost of President Donald Trump’s escalating tariff battles with various nations.
“These are very good times and the midterms will be a report card on that,” he said. “The dollar is strong. The more important measure is real disposable income and it’s booming.”
