Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has said that he believes former President Trump will win the 2024 presidential election in a landslide. He has made this prediction in several interviews and articles, and he has cited a number of factors that he believes will contribute to Trump’s victory.
This week, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich went on Fox News and said that former President Donald Trump is a “movement leader” who has a “very high chance” of winning the general election.
During a recent conversation with Mark Levin on Fox’s “Life, Liberty, and Levin,” the former House speaker talked about how the growing support for Trump wasn’t just about the next presidential race in 2024.
“Trump is not running for office. Gingrich told host Mark Levin, “Trump is the leader of a movement. He is the personification of an establishment that is completely corrupt and will destroy anything that gets in its way.”
“I really think that country is going to pick Trump. And I think it’s very likely that Trump will win the general election,” Gingrich said as a conclusion.
Even though Gingrich has shown support for the former president in the past, a new wave of support has come in since Trump was arrested and charged in Georgia for the fourth time.
Politico wrote about it after a picture of Trump was shared to the press.
Gingrich then said that the former president could have just stopped running for office, retired, and “none of the charges” would have happened.
“Trump could have easily quit, and if he had, none of these charges would have ever been brought against him. Instead, he said, “You know this is worth it for the country,” Gingrich told Levin.
Gingrich went on to say, “And I think that has helped him get support from places that wouldn’t have helped him before.”
In fact, new polls show that Trump is not only the Republican candidate after his talk with Carlson and missing the first GOP debate, but that he is also ahead in the general election by two to three points.
A Morning Consult poll shows that Trump is 44 points ahead of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and is still strong with 58 percent. Also, a recent general election poll by the New York Post shows that Trump could be three points ahead of Biden.
