Former Obama Adviser: A Blue Wave Isn't Coming

Robert Wolf, a former economic adviser to former President Obama, said Tuesday that there will not be the blue wave many are expecting. 

"I like to tweet about the blue wave, but I don't think the blue wave's coming," Wolf said on Fox News’s "America's Newsroom," noting that if Democrats do take the House that it will be by 10 seats or less. 

He said he believes the midterms will be more local than many are focusing on.

"This is not just an anti-Trump election. When you talk locally, they're talking about protecting health care, they're talking about gun rights, gun reform," he said. "So I think it's much more local than what we all talk about."

Wolf said he’ll be watching the gubernatorial races closely, believing Democrats could pick up 6 to 10 governorships, which could have a major impact on redistricting. Speaking with Fox News's Neil Cavuto, he said it could be as high as 12. Republicans currently hold 33 governorships, and Democrats hold 17. There are 36 gubernatorial seats up for grabs on Tuesday.
