Newt Gingrich Says A Red Wave Is Far More Likely This Fall Than A Blue One- Here’s Why:
Gingrich is often dead-on with is predictions. The latest showing serious promise despite Democrats chanting about a looming ‘blue wave’ that will ‘engulf’ November’s Primaries. Take a look at his reasoning.
According to Washington Examiner, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich predicted that Republicans will see a “red wave” in the midterm elections this fall, claiming the party’s chances of holding onto its congressional majority has improved substantially.
“I actually believe we are closer to a red wave than a blue wave. Now, back in December, frankly, I was concerned, because of the huge generic gap. We had not yet passed the tax cuts. Things didn’t feel right. People were upset it had been a year and not much had been accomplished,” Gingrich said.
“Starting with passing the tax cuts, President Trump has done consistently well on conservative judges, deregulation, trade negotiations, what he has done with North Korea. People have a sense things are moving in the right direction. As a result, I don’t know anybody who is a serious student who believes the Democrats have any hope of winning the Senate. In fact, we are likely to gain seats.
Menendez in New Jersey is in trouble, with his scandals. We’re likely to pick up Florida because Gov. Scott is a very strong candidate. Then you add in the other Trump states, West Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, Missouri/ We’re likely to end up somewhere +5 or +6 in the Senate. How can you talk about a blue wave when we’re picking up votes?
We have a chance to do surp[risingly well in the House, it maybe could be the third time in a century that a presidential party actually gains seats in an off-year election.”
“I would predict we are closer to a red wave than a blue wave in the fall campaign, he added”
