Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich predicted that Donald Trump's poll numbers will improve and Hillary Clinton's will head downward as the presidential election approaches.
Gingrich made the comment during an appearance on Fox News with Sean Hannity.
The Trump supporter, whom many considered a finalist to be Trump's running mate, said that Trump's support would improve if he stays on point and takes bold actions.
"My prediction is that it will get better for Trump. It will get worse for Clinton. And to the degree that Trump stays focused on two things: sticking with the teleprompter, which he does as well as anybody I've ever seen, and he's making his points, and he's coming across very, very effectively. And, second, continuing to do things that are bold," Gingrich said.
Gingrich praised Trump for visiting Louisiana's flood victims while Clinton was at a fundraiser on Long Island. He also credited Trump for meeting with the president of Mexico.
Gingrich said that Trump's visit to Youngstown, Ohio's county fair could turn the tide for Trump in the state, which historically supports Democrats.
He added that Republicans in Congress would get a "big boost" from Trump's rising popularity in toss-up states such as Ohio, Maine, and Iowa.
Gingrich said Clinton's numbers would fall as more revelations come out.
"Her problems are so big that they keep leaking through, despite the best efforts of the elite media. The country, week by week, learns more about how dishonest and corrupt Hillary is."
The Huffington Post pointed out that during the interview, while criticizing Clinton's coughing, Gingrich himself had a coughing attack.
