Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich gives President Barack Obama only a 20 percent chance of being reelected â€” and says he might be the one to give Obama the boot.
Gingrich, who this week published a book called â€œTo Save America: Stopping Obamaâ€™s Secular-Socialist Machine,â€ said he thinks Obama has â€œabout one chance in five of getting reelected.â€ and called him â€œthe closest thing to Jimmy Carter Iâ€™ve seen.â€
â€œBecause heâ€™s so radical, youâ€™re now going to have, I think, the most consequential campaign since 1932,â€ when Franklin D. Roosevelt clobbered President Herbert Hoover, Gingrich said.
Giving predictions for Novemberâ€™s midterms, Gingrich said House Republicans will pick up â€œsomewhere between 40 and 65 or 70 seatsâ€ â€” enough to gain control of the House. â€œI believe John Boehner will be speaker in January,â€ he said.
Gingrich said he even sees a chance of Republican control of the Senate. â€œIf they can beat Barbara Boxer [in California], I think that [Mitch] McConnell is going to be the Senate majority leader.â€
The former speaker said there is â€œmore of a possibility nowâ€ that heâ€™ll run for president than when he was considering the idea ahead of the 2008 election. He said heâ€™ll decide in February or March of next year and will base the decision partly on whether there is â€œa potential to raise the resources to be a serious, major candidate.â€
Gingrich said he and his wife, Callista, will base the decision on two top factors: â€œIs the case for basic change clear enough, and powerful enough, that articulating it and carrying it is a legitimate part of my role as a citizen?â€ and â€œIs there a potential to raise the resources to be a serious, major candidate.â€
