Sunny Hostin made it clear on Tuesday that she was concerned about the sheer volume of signs in her area showing support for New York’s Republican gubernatorial challenger Lee Zeldin.

Hostin made the comments on Tuesday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View,” noting that she had voted earlier that morning in Westchester County — which she noted was a somewhat Republican area — and said that she had never seen so many Republican signs in her hometown before.

WATCH:

“I voted this morning at about 7 a.m.,” Hostin began. “And I’m encouraging other people to vote, please. And it was packed, and that was very encouraging for me.”

Hostin’s co-hosts voiced their agreement as she continued, “I voted in Westchester County where I live, which is actually kind of — skews a little Republican, and I was seeing all these like ‘Lee Zeldin for Governor’ things everywhere. I’ve never seen that much Republican signage in my neighborhood ever, and I’ve never seen so many people voting, so that was very encouraging to me.”

“But I have to tell you, I think that they’re using — Republicans are using this rhetoric, this election denial stuff because it works,” Hostin continued. “It works for so many people, and there’s so many people that feel disenfranchised that I’m not surprised that you have someone like Herschel Walker in a dead heat with Senator [Raphael] Warnock.”

Hostin and co-host Joy Behar went on to complain that people didn’t seem swayed by the fact that both Sen. Warnock (D-GA) and Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman (D) were both highly educated.

Republican co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin joined the conversation then, calling on everyone to “go out and vote” and acknowledging that her opinion was likely to be unpopular before predicting Republican gains, at least in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“We won’t know the results until we know them, but I expect to see Republicans win handily,” she continued. “I would say about 20 seats at least in the House. The Senate’s going to be closer, I do think they’ll take back the majority.”

Griffin concluded with a warning against calling results too early, noting that different states counted their votes in different ways and early indicators might not match up with final vote counts.
