( - Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says he's worried about what may happen on November 3, as Democrats and partisan activists in the media find fault with everything Trump does or says while giving Biden easy questions and positive reviews.

"The press is fully all-in, in support of Biden," Cruz told Fox News's Sean Hannity Tuesday night:

I'm worried about the election. I think it's really volatile. I think it could go either way. I think we could have a fantastic election, the president could win by a big margin and we could win both houses of Congress, but I also think it could be devastating.

And I think we either win the presidency and win the Senate, or we lose the presidency and lose the Senate, and I very much hope it's the former and not the latter. And it depends on turnout. It depends on who shows up.

It's one of the reasons I think the confirmation battle over Judge Barrett is so important. We're going to confirm Judge Barrett. We're going to do it by the end of the month. The Democrats are losing their mind.

Cruz said his new book, "One Vote Away" shows "how the Supreme Court is on the ballot, how free speech is on the ballot, how religious liberty is on the ballot, the Second Amendment is on the ballot, how school choice is on the ballot -- that all of those, we're one vote away from a left-wing justice taking away our fundamental rights, and I think the confirmation battles will really underscore that."

Hannity noted it's especially difficult for a Republican to win the presidency, "because you start out without California, Oregon, Washington, New Jersey, New York, and Illinois. It's a lot of electoral votes.

“Then you gotta win Florida, Ohio, Georgia; you gotta win North Carolina, you’ve got to hold Iowa, Arizona; you gotta fight for Nevada, New Mexico. Then you've got to get Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota. You got to fight for Nebraska Congressional District 2, Maine too, and New Hampshire.

“It's always hard for a Republican to win, and I don't trust all these new laws that are going on the books seemingly every day and every state extending out how many days they'll count the vote,” Hannity said.

Cruz agreed, "There are a lot of Democrats trying to steal the election. You know, there are two kinds of election, a turnout election and a persuasion election. I don't think this is a persuasion election. I think there are very few in the middle, there are not a lot of undecideds.

“The left is showing up. They're pissed off. They hate Trump. We've got to make sure everyone else shows up.”
