Gingrich: Republican Party today is ‘incapable’ of beating Hillary Clinton, 2016

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared on “Meet the Press” Sunday, along with White House Correspondents Julianna Goldman & Helene Cooper & Washington Post Associate Editor Bob Woodward. The bulk of the conversation was a discussion on how the Republicans could prepare to compete with a powerhouse like Hillary Clinton as the presidential nominee in 2016.

Democratic insiders all agree that she is going to run. 57 percent of people in a recent poll said they would support Clinton for president if she ran right now.

There was agreement among the panel about how unscathed Clinton has been in her current position as Secretary of State and how unqualified the Republican Party would be to fight against her and the “powers” that are sure to get behind her. Gingrich weighed in saying it would be like trying to win the Superbowl.
