Longtime Democratic strategist Joe Trippi said Republicans will "probably" take the Senate on Tuesday given evidence that GOP candidates are moving away from Democrats in states like Kentucky, Arkansas and Iowa.


"I agree it's moving away" from Democrats, Trippi said of the race between Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnellAddison (Mitch) Mitchell McConnellDemocrats seek leverage for trial Democrats spend big to put Senate in play House Democrats to vote on flavored e-cigarettes ban next year MORE (R-Ky.) and Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes.

"I think all the people on both sides agree that one has slipped away," he said. "Never say never, but I wouldn't argue with it."

At the same time, Trippi sought to reassure Democrats that there is still a possibility their Senate majority could hold.

"There still is a path," Trippi said during an interview on "Fox News Sunday." "Anybody who looks at these races would have to wait until Tuesday [to find out what happens]."

He also predicted that control of the Senate may not be decided until January, with the possibility that Georgia's Senate race may go to a run-off on Jan. 6.

Trippi last month said it would be a “miracle” for Democrats to hold on to the Senate.

Trippi was interviewed on Sunday alongside GOP campaign operative Karl Rove, who said confidently that Republicans will win a majority in the upper chamber.

Rove also predicted that Georgia's Senate race will go to a run-off and that Republican Sen.
