Just days ago, Fox News host Sean Hannity was talking about a potential "red tsunami." However, he admitted on Wednesday that his initial predictions were "frankly foolish".
On the day of the election, Hannity was out looking for the individual who made the predictions. He promoted a segment on his show that featured two conservative pollsters who claimed that the Republicans would win both the Senate and House.

After the election, which saw the Republicans perform well below expectations, the conservative host of his show played dumb.
Hannity said that he couldn't confirm if the rumors about a red tsunami started because the polls in most of the key races were within the margin of error. He also admitted that his initial predictions were foolish. One of his rules in life is never to overpromise or under-promise.
As of right now, it appears that the Republicans are on track to gain a small majority in the House and are expected to retain their majority.
On the other hand, it's also possible that the Democrats will maintain control of the Senate. In Georgia, a runoff election will be held between Raphael Warnock, a Democrat, and Herschel Walker, a Republican.
