    Former US House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich said if Donald Trump wins New Hampshire, his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and her team should be very worried for the final election outcome.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Former US House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich said in an interview on Tuesday he will be looking at the 2nd Congressional District in the US state of Maine as well as in New Hampshire to judge how Republican nominee Donald Trump is performing in the presidential election.

    "I want to look at the northernmost congressional district in Maine because if Trump picks that up… that will be unusual and a sign that a conservative Republican with blue-collar appeal can reach out on a place like Maine, as opposed to the assumption you have to be a moderate," Gingrich told Politico. "Second, you got to look at New Hampshire."

    Gingrich noted that if Trump wins New Hampshire, his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and her team should be very worried for the final election outcome.

    Gingrich also said he is confident Trump will win the state of Ohio, but added the Republican nominee will likely lose in the state of Pennsylvania because historically there is a lot of voter fraud in the city of Philadelphia.
