WATCH: Newt Gingrich Says the GOP Is "Incapable" of Winning In 2016 If Hillary Clinton Runs for President

The Republican Party in its current form is "incapable" of beating Hillary Clinton if she's the Democratic nominee for president in 2016, former House Speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said Sunday.

"If their competitor in '16 is going to be Hillary Clinton, supported by Bill Clinton and presumably, a still relatively popular President Barack Obama, trying to win that will be truly the Super Bowl," Gingrich told NBC's "Meet the Press." "And the Republican Party today is incapable of competing at that level."

Rumors about Clinton's political future have swirled since she announced her decision to step down as secretary of State early next year. Clinton has denied having such ambitions but her high approval ratings - 57 percent in the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll - all but ensure she will be a focus of speculation.
