(PatrioticPost.com)- The former Fox News Sunday host, Chris Wallace, who left the network for CNN, refused to say who he voted for after being grilled by liberal comedian Bill Maher, according to Daily Wire. Wallace reportedly deflected questions about his voting record when he sat down with Maher on his show, “Real Time With Bill Maher: Overtime”— along with former Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and journalist Katty Kay.
“So did you vote for Trump?” Maher asked Wallace.
“I—you know, there’s a secret ballot,” Wallace deflected as the audience laughed.
“Oh, I know,” Maher responded, adding that “some people don’t care about that question.”
“It was worth the question. It was worth a try,” Kay shrugged.
“Was it?” Wallace pressed.
“Yeah. I mean, why not?” Maher asked.
“I have a better question,” Wallace claimed as he was about to repeat the same exact question he was asked. Turning to Christie, he asked “Did you vote for Trump?”
“I did,” Christie said with a straight face.
“Both times?” Wallace asked.
Christie answered affirmatively to near simultaneous “wows” by both Maher and Wallace. When Maher asked if he would vote for the former president again, Christie laughed.
“Good try,” he chuckled. “You’ve got more honesty out of me that you’ve got than anybody else.”
Christie also flirted with a potential 2024 presidential run when asked, saying “sure,” that it’s a possibility.

Christie expressed some frustration with what Maher called the “Trump cult,” saying that contrary to what Trump had promised in 2016, Republicans have not been doing very much “winning.” In 2018 they lost both the House and the Senate and then the presidency in 2020, Christie said, adding that Republicans need to go back to winning.
A tight midterm race is projected between both parties. Earlier this year, it appeared obvious that there was going to be a red wave, but due to some recent legislative wins and the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Democrats are now nearly tied with Republicans down the ballot. While it’s projected that Republicans may win the House and flip six seats to secure a majority, Democrats are likely to hold onto the Senate.
