The upcoming election in 2020 should be a slam dunk for Trump. Just look at the Dems he is running against. If that were not enough, he is also a sitting president which means the odds are with him. But some believe this could be a closer race. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was interviewed on “America’s Newsroom.” He claimed that Trump only needs two things to guarantee his win.
“If the economy stays good and the president stays focused, he’s going to win,” he remarked.
While making the prediction, Gingrich pointed to the Trump campaign’s increasing momentum, which he said: “is all predicated on just tremendous amounts of hard work.”
On Tuesday the campaign and Republican National Committee (RNC) announced they had fundraised a record $105 million dollars in the second quarter of 2019.
The president already had an unprecedented $40.8 million in cash-on-hand on April 1, 2019. The Republican National Committee and their joint fundraising committees had a combined $82 million cash-on-hand.
“Deep down, I think President Trump’s pretty confident that—when it’s over—he’s going to be re-elected,” Gingrich said, before turning his attention to 2020 Campaign Manager Brad Parscale.
Gingrich has worked with Parscale since the Republican National Convention in 2016 and told the co-anchors he knows Parscale to be “very close” to the president. He said Parscale is the right man for the job because he believes Trump is “going to get re-elected.”
“I mean, two things: look at the amount of money Parscale has raised and then look at the size of every one of these rallies,” Gingrich exclaimed.”
If you look at the current polls the Dems only have Biden and Sanders who really stand any chance of competing against Trump. And they are constantly being targeted. Sanders is losing his place to Elizabeth Warren, and it is only a matter of time until Biden makes a remark that the Dems get triggered by. So Gingrich is likely right, if the Dems continue with the current trend, it’s going to be one of the far left candidates that makes it past the primaries. So unless they rig the election, Trump should easily win.
