Newt Gingrich Says Biden-Harris Campaign Will Eventually ‘Collapse’

( Republican Newt Gingrich, the former speaker of the House of Representatives, predicted that the presidential ticket of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will “collapse” eventually.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” on Monday evening just before the start of the Democratic National Convention, Gingrich said:

“This will be the high-water mark before the collapse of the Biden-Harris ticket.”

The Democratic National Convention began its all-virtual event on Monday night, with speeches and videos from high-profile Democrats looking to rally the troops.

Gingrich said he thinks this year’s Democratic ticket will ultimately be viewed in a similar vein to that of the 1972 bid of George McGovern, who was then a Senator from South Dakota. McGovern lost in historic fashion to incumbent Richard Nixon.

“Rasmussen just came out and said 55% of the country does not think Biden will complete his first term, which means people are going to be looking at Harris as a president, not a vice president,” Gingrich said.

That means that people will head to the polls in November and will need to be comfortable with Harris as president if they are going to vote Democrat. That isn’t something that many Democrats were eager to do during the primaries. Harris ended her failed presidential bid in November 2019.

Gingrich also pointed to recent national polls that are showing that President Donald Trump is making headway with Biden. According to a recent CNN poll, the Biden-Harris ticket leads the Trump-Mike Pence Republican ticket by only 4 percentage points – 50% to 46%. That gap is within the margin of error for the poll.

Which poll to trust is a little confusing at this point, though. That’s because on the same day the CNN poll was released, one from ABC News and the Washington Post revealed the Democrats had a commanding 12-point lead (53% to 41%) over the Republicans among all registered voters.

Among likely voters, Democrats still held a 10-point lead over Republicans,
