Gingrich Says Rising Trump Poll Numbers, International Elections Spell Doom For Biden


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Former Speaker of the House, Republican Newt Gingrich said that elections that have taken place around the world indicate that the entire globe, not just the United States, has grown weary of the far left.

The former Speaker pointed to elections in Argentina, Italy, and Hungary and juxtaposed them with the rising poll numbers of former President Donald Trump to make his case.

“This is about their survival. This is literally the behavior of an entire system, which understands it is on the verge of being destroyed,” the former Speaker said to Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

“They are looking at what happened in Italy and what just happened last week in Argentina. There is a worldwide movement against left-wing radical, socialist values. Look at Hungary. Again and again, average everyday people are saying no, we don’t want this,” the former Speaker said.

“The numbers for Trump right now get bigger and bigger and bigger. I think what you are seeing on the left is desperation that literally is a survival function. We’ve never seen this, maybe the South in 1860. Other than that, I have never seen this level of desperation in American politics, and it will get worse,” he said.


“They have a candidate who is hopeless. If you watch Joe Biden, you know he is not going to win, and they can’t get rid of him. They have a situation where their opponent is getting stronger and better and more disciplined. I think that leads to a very explosive moment in American history,” the former Speaker said.

“Putting him in jail won’t work either. The problem they have got is — I don’t know how it happened, I’m writing a series in American Spectator, I have to confess — I’m not sure how we got to where we are today because it is hard to understand how the modern left somehow went through this permutation, this almost mutant behavior, they are now so radically isolated, and they are losing African Americans and Latinos and in recent polls, they’re losing young Americans and Asian Americans,” he said.

“All the groups they thought they could count on are thinking, ‘These guys are nuts.’ And they are not going to vote for them,” the former Speaker from Georgia said.

“They know they are nuts because of pain, pain in terms of fentanyl and crime, pain in terms of the price of living, and pain in the number of immigrants crossing the border,” he said.

“Every time they turn around, they see an incompetent president who is beyond his due date. A reasonable Democratic Party, if it still existed, and it doesn’t, would insist Joe Biden step down. There is no Democratic Party that can do that and he’s not going to step down. And if he did, they get Kamala Harris because in their party, their particular universe, you cannot defeat a black woman,” he said.

The new EPIC/MRA poll finds Biden losing to Trump by 5 points, 46-41 percent, after leading Trump by a point in the same survey in August, Newsmax reported on Monday, a 6-point swing in two months’ time.


Meanwhile, former South Carolina governor and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley trounced Biden by an even bigger amount — 11 points — in the same survey.

Newsmax adds: “Biden pulled just 36% support against Haley and an even great percentage of likely voters were undecided (17%). Meanwhile, 37% of likely Michigan voters had not heard of Haley before, potentially showing her support might amount to merely voting against Biden.”

“Democrats ought to be aware there is a growing possibility that Donald Trump may become president again,” EPIC-MRA pollster Bernie Porn told the Detroit Free Press, per Newsmax.

With 16 electoral votes, Michigan is among the biggest of a handful of crucial swing states that most often decide presidential elections. It is also among the most Democrat-leaning swing states: Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

The pollster said that according to the survey’s results, Biden’s age and his perceived poor handling of the economy are driving voters to other candidates.

“I think it’s his age and comparative perceptions of him versus Trump,” Porn told the Free Press. “People are dismissing the Bidenomics approach — they’re not impressed with that messaging.”
