Gingrich Predicts Obama's 2012 Loss-House to Gop in 2010 And Possibly The Senate in 2010

The Politico:

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich gives President Barack Obama only a 20 percent chance of being reelected — and says he might be the one to give Obama the boot.

Gingrich, who this week published a book called “To Save America: Stopping Obama’s Secular-Socialist Machine,” said he thinks Obama has “about one chance in five of getting reelected.” and called him “the closest thing to Jimmy Carter I’ve seen.”

“Because he’s so radical, you’re now going to have, I think, the most consequential campaign since 1932,” when Franklin D. Roosevelt clobbered President Herbert Hoover, Gingrich said.

Giving predictions for November’s midterms, Gingrich said House Republicans will pick up “somewhere between 40 and 65 or 70 seats” — enough to gain control of the House. “I believe John Boehner will be speaker in January,” he said.

Newt also believes if Barbara Boxer loses her Senate race in California, the Senate may change hands as well.

According to Real Clear Politics, Rasmussen has Boxer ahead by 1, PPIC and Field polls both have her Republican challenger Tom Campbell up by 1.
