GOP candidate claims he can win election in a 'landslide,' but it's not Trump

September 3, 2023

GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy said Friday that he could win the 2024 election in a "landslide."

Ramaswamy shared the remarks during a Fox News interview on "America Reports."

The comments

“We’re leaving no state left behind, no city left behind, no American left behind, already building a multiethnic working-class coalition,” the presidential candidate said.

“And I think this cannot be a 50.1 [percent] election. I think this has to be a landslide moral mandate like Ronald Reagan delivered in 1980. That’s what I’m aiming to do in 2024. That’s the single most important thing that will reunite this country," he added.

Attacking the deep state

Ramaswamy's comments come just a week after making similar statements about the "deep state" with Sean Hannity last week.

"Here’s the TRUTH on how to win 2024 in a landslide: stop talking about Joe Biden & start talking about our own vision," he said.

"The dirty little secret is that Biden isn’t even the one who’s in charge. The people we elect to run the government aren’t the ones who actually run the government right now. It’s the managerial class in the deep state," he continued.

The reality

The reality may be far different from Ramaswamy's landslide prediction. The latest poll from The Economist/YouGov showed him in single digits.

He currently ranks at 6%, far behind former President Donald Trump at 52% and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at 16%.

Despite the contrast between current poll numbers and his landslide prediction, Ramaswamy has become a breakout candidate. Without prior political experience, he has shot up to third over well-known Republicans like Sen. Tim Scott (SC) and former Vice President Mike Pence.

The coming weeks will show whether he will make progress on Trump's lead or whether his prediction will fade as the former president presses forward on his comeback bid.
