Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday predicted that Democrats would maintain control of the Senate and emerge from the midterm elections with a majority of 52 seats, The Hill reported.

"I think we're going to end up with 52 about, in that range, Democratic votes," Biden said in an interview with Connecticut radio station, WPLR.

"I think we win Alaska, which you know the pundits are saying we lose. I think we win North Carolina, which is a tough race. I think we win New Hampshire, in fact I'm pretty, pretty confident we win New Hampshire," he said.

He also made a prediction that Democrats would pick up seats in Kansas and Georgia, where Republicans currently have control.

"I think we have a chance of picking up an independent who will be with us in the state of Kansas. I think we're going to win Georgia. I think [Democrat Michelle] Nunn is going to win in Georgia. I think there will be a runoff probably with [Louisiana Sen.] Mary Landrieu."

His Election Day predictions were part of a series of get-out-the-vote interviews airing in different parts of the country on Tuesday.

Biden's comments come as all three of the leading electoral models estimate that Republicans are overwhelmingly favored to take control of the Senate, while pundits suggest that likely runoffs in Georgia and Louisiana will ultimately be victories for the GOP.

Despite his projections, Biden told CNN on Monday that if he was wrong and Republicans are successful in taking control of the Senate, the White House would be prepared to work with them.

"Look, we're — we're ready to compromise," Biden said.

"I think they're gonna be inclined — because the message from the people, and I'm gettin' it all over the country, is they're tired of Washington not being able to do anything," Biden added.
