Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich joined Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” on Tuesday and said he believes that Republicans will win back both the House and Senate in 2022 in “a landslide of historic proportion.”

Co-host Dana Perino began the segment by calling attention to the fact that Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will not be in attendance at President Biden’s speech in Atlanta Tuesday, suggesting that Abrams’s reasoning for her absence is that Biden has such dismal approval numbers in the state.

Biden is expected to lobby yet again for the proposed voting rights bill during his speech, and Gingrich remarked that Abrams is wise to stay far away from it.

“I think Stacey Abrams is very smart,” he said, “I think she realizes that a photo-op next to President Biden [and] Vice President Harris hurts her. It doesn’t help her. I think she also agrees with the civil rights groups who think this thing is all phony.”

He went on to say that Democrats will never get the bill through. After all, it is the second such attempt at massive federalization of elections and no one is buying what the Democrats are selling.

Gingrich went on to explain what folly it is for the president to put so much energy into something that is so sure to fail, when he should be aiming his energy toward remedying crippling gas and food prices; the crisis at the border and supply chain issues, and all of that to say nothing of COVID testing chaos.

He said of the Biden regime, “It’s very puzzling how much they’re owned by the radicals, and keep doing theses dances that just plan fail.”

The former speaker said that it’s easy to observe how the Left continues to adopt policies that the country hates, citing the examples of New York City, where illegal immigrants were granted the right to vote in municipal elections, and the recent news out of California, where Governor Gavin Newsom is hoping to increase taxes in order to provide healthcare to every illegal immigrant who can get inside the state.

“They keep trying to dig their way deeper, not dig their way out,” Gingrich said.

Perino offered that the best strategy for Republicans heading into the 2022 midterms might be to simply raise the point that Biden and progressive Democrats are way too radically left for the country as a whole, after which Gingrich further distilled the notion:

“Look, I think the best strategy is simple: It ain’t working. You go stand at a gas station and watch people put gas in–it ain’t working. Go to a grocery store and look at the price of beef. It ain’t working. Go look at the 120 ships sitting off of Long Beach. It ain’t working. Go to the border.”

“The mayor of Yuma declares an emergency because there is a 2,500 percent increase in the number of people coming across the border in his town. It ain’t working,” he continued. “I think that if Republicans just run on ‘this ain’t working,’ they’ll probably win a landslide of historic proportion in both the House and Senate.”

Co-host Bill Hemmer agreed and concluded, “I think we’ve got the title of your next column: ‘It ain’t working!'”
