SEAN HANNITY (HOST): They need to get their act together, but with a 3 or 4-vote majority, it's not easy. You've been there with, with you know, when you're dealing with all these varying factions and points of view in the House, it's hard.
NEWT GINGRICH (GUEST): Sure, but, look, you had 4% of the conference, 4%, side with all of the Democrats. Now, that's suicidal.
I mean, maybe because Gaetz hates McCarthy, and maybe somebody else can bring the eight of them back or whatever. But if I were there, I don't candidly, Sean, I don't know what I'd do. I would regard these eight people as traitors.
I would think that, what they just did, to say that 210 of your colleagues, we don't care who you choose, the eight of us are more important, and we are going to side with your mortal opponents.
I mean, are they going, you know, make Hakeem the speaker? And they don't have any strategy. These were eight people on a suicide mission with no idea of the next step.
HANNITY: They have no idea. And the longer this goes on, the worse it looks to the country.
GINGRICH: Yeah. But I don't worry about that. I mean, we will get through this at some point. We just got some polling numbers back at the America's New Majority Project, you know that I run. And, you know, we're up by eight points on the generic ballot. Gallup just came out and said that we're away ahead.
