Newt: “I Don’t Think I’m Going To Win” Iowa, But It “Will Be A Victory”
Newt Gingrich blames negative campaigning against him for what he sees as an inevitable loss in Iowa.
“I don’t think I’m going to win,” Gingrich told reporters during a press availability. “If you look at the numbers, that volume of negativity has done enough damage. But on the other hand, if the Des Moines Register was right and 41 percent [are] potentially undecided, who knows what’s going to happen.”
“Whatever I do tomorrow night will be a victory because I’m still standing,” he added, noting that this is the second time he has had to fight after many political observers had written off Gingrich’s campaign last summer after the majority of his staff quit.
