From her lips...

In an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi opened her remarks with a bold prediction for the 2018 midterms. But not everyone thought the statement was a good idea.

After welcoming California Democrat Pelosi to the program, host Stephen Colbert asked how she felt about the next 6 days leading up to Tuesday's midterms. Pelosi responded:

"Let me say this: Up until today, I would have said if the election were held today, we will win."

Colbert interjected to ask what changed. Pelosi replied:

"Now I’m saying is, we will win, we will win, we will win."

But Colbert responded:

"Please don’t say that. Do you want to say that on Hillary’s fireworks barge that she canceled? Please don't say that."

Colbert later made the Catholic Sign of the Cross gesture as Pelosi continued to predict a Democratic victory to retake the House on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. He then said:

"I feel like I should sacrifice a goat or something to take the hex off what you just said."

Watch the full interview here.

Colbert referenced the Victory predicted in 2016 for Hillary Clinton in 2016, who did win the popular vote by several million, but ultimately lost the electoral vote.

When Fox News shared Pelosi's prediction, many of their followers raised the same issue.

While other Fox News fans had other things to say on the subject.

As well as this reaction from what appears to be, based on his Twitter account, a White man.

Elsewhere, people urged caution against predictions of victory...

..and suggested prayer against a possible jinx.

Midterm elections are slated for Tuesday, November 6, 2018. However early voting is available as well.
