(FiveNation.com)- According to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, the Republicans could make significant gains in both chambers of Congress on November 8.
Gingrich said he would predict Republicans would be between plus three and plus seven in the Senate; and be between plus 20 and plus 50 in the House, with plus 44 seeming the most likely.
To regain control of the House, the GOP must flip five seats. Republicans must gain one Senate member to take control of the chamber.
As Election Day draws near, Democratic hope seems to wane as Republican contenders pick up late momentum in crucial national contests.
According to a poll conducted on October 20 by Republican pollster Fabrizio, Lee, and Associates, Republican challenger Don Bolduc has closed the gap between himself and Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire to just two points, well within the poll’s margin of error of four percentage points. The poll, which Bolduc’s team paid for, gave Hassan a 49 percent to Bolduc’s 47 percent advantage.
Republican Senate candidate Blake Masters, who has Trump’s support, is making progress in Arizona. RealClearPolitics, a polling data aggregator, projects a toss-up outcome and gives Democratic incumbent Mark Kelly a slim 2.5-point advantage.
In recent weeks, Lt. Governor John Fetterman’s significant lead in Pennsylvania has vanished. In a recent AARP Pennsylvania poll with a margin of error of 4.4 points, Fetterman led with 48 to 46 percent of the vote, according to Fabrizio Ward and Impact Research.
The advantage held by Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock over Republican nominee Herschel Walker in Georgia is also shrinking. A recent Landmark Communication poll showed the two tied at 46%, while an InsiderAdvantage poll put Warnock ahead by 2 points with a 4.2 percentage point margin of error.
Republicans are becoming more competitive almost everywhere in the nation, according to Gingrich. Democrats, according to him, are solely to blame.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi argued that women’s concerns about their rights are still crucial to voters’ decisions. On the other hand, Newt Gingrich argues that Democrats won’t benefit from the abortion debate as much as Pelosi and other Democrats may believe because Republicans are more pro-life.
