Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich made a bombshell statement about Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton this Friday that supporters of presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump will greatly appreciate.
“The young people are going to (Vermont Sen.) Bernie Sanders in part because they’re repelled by Clinton’s entire style and her negativity, ” he said while speaking on Fox News.
The polls, the surveys and the primary results have shown that young people strongly prefer Sanders to Clinton, so how do you suppose they will react if and when the Democrat National Committee forces the coronation of Clinton as the party’s presidential nominee?
They’ll likely react by either pledging to not vote or, even better, vowing to vote for Trump.
Gingrich added that though Clinton and Trump both suffered from poor favorability ratings, the presumptive GOP nominee’s “personality wears better in an attack mode than hers does,” meaning in effect that he has a higher chance of drawing in frustrated Democrats than she has of luring in disgruntled “Never Trump” Republicans.
The moral of this story is that the election was definitely in Trump’s favor, and no matter how hard she tries, Clinton is simply not going to be able to shrug off her inordinately unlikable personality.

It helps too that Clinton is currently under investigation by the FBI for her illicit activities as the former secretary of state. It also helps that whereas the Republican Party has begun to unite around Trump, the Democrat Party remains as divided as ever.
Unless Sanders somehow wins the nomination or Clinton magically manages to seduce the hearts of millions of young Democrats, the party could be in for a very severe defeat this November.
Plus, remember that it was the youth vote that drove President Barack Obama’s victory in 2008, and the youth surely are not feeling Clinton the way they felt him.
