The creator of the comic strip Dilbert predicted in a new interview that Republicans will turn out in droves to cast their votes on Election Day next month.

Cartoonist and author Scott Adams, a supporter of President Donald Trump, spoke with Breitbart and said he believes the GOP will have large turnout — although he noted that may not lead to the party retaining control of the House.

Midterm elections day will see "the greatest turnout by Republicans, maybe ever," Adams said.

Adams then went deeper and explained his reasoning.

"My hypothesis is that humans are primed by whatever they've already seen. So if they've seen a pattern, they've already fallen into it," he said. "And one of the patterns Republicans enjoyed in 2016 was having the other side be surprised. And they really enjoyed it — I'm talking about the kind of joy you can talk about over the course of your lifetime.

"And the Republican personality — I realize this is a gross generalization — is that it's not always about the talk, it's about the showing up. Republicans are going to show up. And they're driven by all the things people are talking about, but you cannot underestimate the fun, either. I'll tell you this: if the Republicans pull out the House [win] — I'm still thinking it's unlikely, only because other people say so and I don't know any different — it's because there's a s—load of Republicans who are saying to themselves, 'They're gonna be surprised.'"

Adams endorsed Trump leading up to the 2016 presidential election months after saying he was backing Democrat Hillary Clinton.
