Noted polling non-expert Leroy N. Gingrich popped up today with some new “analysis.” When a guy makes predictions like this one a week before the 2012 election
9. Newt Gingrich: “A Romney landslide.” The former House Speaker predicted that Romney will take 53 percent of the popular vote and at least 300 electoral college votes. “My personal guess is you’ll see a Romney landslide, 53 percent-plus . . . in the popular vote, 300 electoral votes-plus,” Gingrich said. He also predicted that Republicans “may come very close to capturing control of the Senate.” He apologized for the faulty call the morning after the election.
why would anyone listen to him four years later when he says even more stupid shit like this?
Donald Trump need not concern himself with polls showing him losing to Hillary Clinton in late June, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich insisted Tuesday, calling upon recent poll sponsored by ABC News and The Washington Post to be withdrawn or redesigned. And if Trump is within five points of Clinton on the Friday before Election Day, Gingrich predicted, the presumptive Republican nominee will be the next president.
“The Washington Post poll has her tying with Trump with men. Now the odds against that happening are so great that even given the total bias of The Washington Post and the degree to which they’re now committing a hatchet job on Trump, I think some sense of professional dignity should have led them either to withdraw the poll or redesign it,” Gingrich told “Fox & Friends,” referring to the co-sponsor of the poll co-produced by the Post’s polling team with Langer Research Associates.
That’s quite a track record ol’ Leroy has got going there, huh? By the time November roles around, there’ll be some aliens (not just of the illegal variety, either) involved in the Gingrich “landslide” story. Why does anyone give this worthless humsn being a platform to speak on any issue whatsoever?
Thanks, Politico! Who’s your next expert – somebody’s cat? For the record, my money would be on the cat.
