From the October 24 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends

STUART VARNEY (HOST, VARNEY & CO.): I'm not going to make a prediction about whether they keep the House or lose the House. But I am going to say that there are two very potent issues working for President Trump. Number one, the economy, and number two, this approaching caravan or caravans, plural, as it is. That is a very potent issue for the president, working very much in his favor. Especially when these caravans are due to arrive on election day. I mean, that's a set up isn't it? For the president.
