Many pundits are predicting Democrats will have success in the 2018 midterm elections, but Newt Gingrich believes it could actually be a great year for Republicans.
Gingrich said those who predict Democrats could retake the House and/or Senate are the same people who predicted Donald Trump could not be a credible presidential candidate, could not secure the Republican nomination and could not win the general election.
He said if Republicans stick to the issues - like the tax bill, which will give tax cuts to most Americans - they have a winning message.
"If the Republicans, led by the president, can focus in on winning the argument about the tax bill, spend the whole year pounding away at the notion jobs are created by businesses, cutting taxes and cutting regulation creates jobs, and let the Democrats be the party of socialism, big government and big bureaucracy, I think we can win a surprising election this fall," Gingrich said.
He said the White House is working on putting together a political operation to support Republican candidates, and RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel has proven to be a tremendous fundraiser.
"We’re going to have a pretty darn good political team, I think, this year. The question is whether they can agree on a strategy," Gingrich said.
He said he's also optimistic about Republicans' chances in 2018 because he sees the "underlying momentum" of the country moving toward the GOP and away from Democrats, despite the efforts of the left-wing media.
He said Republicans just have to ask the American people if they want higher or lower taxes, less or more jobs, weakness or strength in dealing with adversaries on the international stage.
"Every time you get to those questions and you get away from the noise, people, I think, by 65-70 percent favor the Republican position."
Why would smart voters want to put Democrats in Congress in 2018 Election when their policies will totally kill the great wealth created during the months since the Election. People are much better off now not to mention ISIS, VA, Judges, Strong Border, 2nd A, Tax Cuts & more?
