But don't take my word for it. Just ask him…
"I'm going to be the nominee. It's very hard not to look at the recent polls and think that the odds are very high I’m going to be the nominee."
Still not convinced? Here's Newt on his GOP primary opponents…
"They are not going to be the nominee. I don't have to go around and point out the inconsistencies of people who are not going to be the nominee. They are not going to be the nominee."
There you have it. No person can be the Republican nominee without also being named Newt Gingrich. We'll add this to the running tally of his rules, including "No person can be called a lobbyist while also being named Newt Gingrich" and "No person gets to be the car in Monopoly without also being named Newt Gingrich."
