Gingrich: GOP Could Shatter ‘Red Wave’ Record Set Under Obama

'I would say that if you’re in a district that Biden carried by less than 15 or 20 points, you’re in great danger as a Democrat... '

(John RansomHeadline USA) Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, a Republican, predicted that the GOP will pick up between 25 and 75 House seats during the midterm elections and perhaps as many as four Senate seats.

“I would say that if you’re in a district that Biden carried by less than 15 or 20 points, you’re in great danger as a Democrat,” Gingrich said, according to the Epoch Times.

Gingrich, speaking with Fox’s Maria Bartiromo, pointed out that the alienation of Hispanic voters could very much hurt the Democrats this time out and predicted that more diverse candidates will help the GOP.

“I think that people like Herschel Walker are going to do very, very well,” Gingrich told Fox News.

To put the numbers in perspective, in 1994 Gingrich led the Republican party to an historic defeat of Democrats that saw a 54-seat GOP pick up in House seats and with eight GOP Senate seats added.

In 2010, the Tea Party Revolution saw the Democrats lose 63 House seats and six Senate seats, that marked the height of Democrat power not seen since Lyndon Johnson’s progressive campaigns in 1965, said the Washington Post.

The Democrats seem to be gamely prepared to put up with the defeat as the Biden administration continues to stick its head in the sand, blaming “war in Europe” for the delicate prospects of a Democrat election victory.

“We understand some realities happening right now, including the fact that there is a war happening in Europe, and that is dominating the airwaves, which we understand and fully expect,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in response to a question about how the administration is dealing with domestic economic pressures, according to the Epoch Times.

Gingrich has been working with Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on proposals for a GOP-led Congress to submit to Biden for his signature.

Despite a controversy surrounding McCarthy about a leaked audio tape critical of former President Trump, Gingrich expects that McCarthy will end up the new House Speaker.

“I think he will do an amazingly good job,” Gingrich said, according to the Washington Examiner.
