Newt Gingrich comes forward, says Trump has a good chance of winning in 2024

 August 28, 2023

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has asserted that the legal challenges faced by former President Donald Trump may inadvertently boost his shot at winning the 2024 Republican nomination and, subsequently, the general election against the incumbent, President Joe Biden, as the Daily Wire reported.

Trump's Resilience: A Gingrich Perspective

 Gingrich, in a discussion on Fox News' Life, Liberty & Levin, posited that the rise in support for the former president after each indictment — currently numbering four — stems from the public's perception of Trump courageously confronting a seemingly oppressive system.

Gingrich shared with anchor Mark Levin that many individuals, regardless of their opinion on Trump's character, believe they must choose between supporting a perceived corrupt administration or backing someone who continually faces challenges head-on. 

Why a Diverse Demographic Supports Trump

Gingrich, a pivotal figure in Congress from 1995 to 1999, highlighted an intriguing shift in Trump's demographics.

He noted an uptick in Trump's support from Black male voters, attributing this trend to their empathy towards Trump's current plight. 

Gingrich explained that the rationale is straightforward: These individuals believe the police have unjustly targeted them.

Observing what they perceive as the government's similar treatment of Trump, they find common ground with his experiences.

Furthermore, speaking on Trump's broad supporter base, Gingrich depicted Trump as the "leader of a movement" combating an entrenched and allegedly degenerate establishment.

Potential Outcomes of the Legal Tangles

Offering some speculative insights, Gingrich surmised that Trump could have evaded these legal challenges had he chosen a quieter life post the 2020 elections.

Nonetheless, Gingrich is of the opinion that these legal complications may very well pave the way for Trump's return, not just to the Republican nomination but also to the highest office in the land.

"I think that the country is in fact going to nominate Trump, and I think Trump has a very high likelihood of winning the general election," Gingrich contended.

The 2024 GOP Front-runner's Arrest: A Closer Look

Last week, Trump, the frontrunner for the 2024 GOP primary, was arrested and briefly held at Georgia's Fulton County Jail.

The arrest is connected to charges arising from his alleged attempts to challenge the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election results. However, he was quickly released after posting a $200,000 bond.

Following his booking, the former president's campaign saw a surge in fundraising and raised over $7 million.

On Friday, the campaign garnered an additional $4.18 million, making it the most successful 24-hour fundraising period to date, as Politico reported.

This Georgia indictment represents the fourth formal set of charges against Trump.

He has consistently argued that various institutions, including the Biden administration, the Department of Justice, and several prosecutors, are leading a coordinated campaign against him.
