  • An ex-GOP strategist suggested that former President Donald Trump has no chance of winning the 2024 presidential election.
  • Scott Jennings made his prediction based on the early results of the 2022 midterm elections.
  • Many Trump-backed Republican candidates underperformed in Tuesday’s midterm elections.

A conservative political commentator and ex-GOP strategist suggested that former President Donald Trump has zero chance of winning the 2024 presidential election — should he run — based on the early results of the 2022 midterm elections.

“How could you look at these results tonight and conclude Trump has any chance of winning a national election in 2024?” Scott Jennings, a former advisor to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, said in an early Wednesday tweet.

Trump had endorsed more than 330 GOP candidates running for both state and federal office in this election cycle, and a much-anticipated “red wave” failed to quickly materialize in Tuesday’s midterm elections.

While many Republican candidates underperformed in the fight for the control of Congress, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp won their races to keep control of their states.

“Huge night for DeSantis,” Jennings said in another tweet. “No doubt. But also – when does someone say Kemp 2024 is a thing now, too?”

Results were still coming in from the midterm elections, which will determine the balance of power in both the House and the Senate, into Wednesday.
