Newt Gingrich is making a bold prediction about President Donald Trump’s performance in the upcoming election.
“He has a better likelihood [of winning] than he did at this stage in 2016, when he was clearly behind and closing rapidly,” Gingrich said of Trump during an appearance on Fox News, according to the Washington Examiner.
Although many pollsters have put Trump’s chances of victory at less than 10%, Gingrich said a model that shows Trump winning the Electoral College with a staggering 326 votes is the only one “that made sense” to him, the Examiner reported.
The former speaker of the House also said the difference between Trump and Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden is like the difference between a “bunny rabbit” and a “bear,” telling Fox:
It comes down to something which is psychological, not ideological.
