They're Gingrich saying that -- governor Romney's likely Republican presidential.
Well I think you have to be realistic view in the size -- his organization given the number of primary she's one.
He is far and away the most likely Republican nominee.
And if he does get to 11144.
Delegates are supportive -- the -- they can in this all the helping defeat Obama.
-- in excess interviewing trigger Gingrich on FOX News Sunday joining us now from Washington DC Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume.
Brett were you surprised.
-- the speakers candor.
Now I wasn't really Lou because I think he -- hinted that that was the way he felt and when I saw him before the interview we chatted briefly.
He -- -- all of that all of led by Alan anger that he seemed to have toward Romney does seem to have gone out of him he was in -- very mellow -- line.
And so once we got into -- I wasn't surprised to hear him say what he said now of course he stays in the race.
At least officially.
Against the possibility that you know Mitt Romney falls in the orchestra pit brings -- or something and in many us some hope and or he thinks it may be.
Somehow Romney won't quite get enough delegates and it might have an open convention but I it's pretty clear he's.
Pretty well given up hope that he's he's ready to think about how to help the.
-- senator Santorum.
At home with a sick child.
He's retired there for a few days at least from the campaign trail.
Are are we looking now at thirty presumptive Republican nominee -- governor Romney.
All I think so but no Rick Santorum -- have a lot.
To say -- -- something to say about how soon Romney is able to turn his attention fully.
President Obama there is an ad campaign.
You know in the wings waiting to go in Pennsylvania.
A Romney -- on you know attacking Santorum and what Santorum goes in the days ahead will determine whether -- -- that.
Those those kinds of us -- you do -- a campaign and has been very effective in the past.
And of course what Santorum has to worry about is that having you know basically almost taken himself out of politics when he lost his.
Last race in Pennsylvania in 2006.
That was of course all voters this would be Republican primary voters.
And if you lost in that it would.
I think it would undo a lot of what he's done -- -- in this race I think he has to be concerned about.
And and of course -- Santorum is running behind governor Romney right now -- you know slightly Bob.
So let's let's turn to another issue that -- is suddenly bubbling up here.
For your I'd like -- to -- the meaning of this and that is subway.
There is -- it seems building pressure on the Democrats in the senate to actually take up.
The but the Obama budget.
Well but this this would be kind of a symbolic vote no president's budget in the history is ever passed sort of as it is.
All of them are sort of technically dead on a problem because.
First of -- you know that the congress' each house and exits on budget the president signatures not required on the congressional budget although it is required by law that there be one.
And in the senate at least there hasn't been a budget in the past three cycles so far on Fox's Sunday -- today senator Conrad hinted that he might try.
Even at this late date to bring -- budget to the floor but he has no guarantee from -- -- -- such a budget would would would even be acted on or even brought up so.
You know that somebody will try to add an amendment.
To some bill that will be the Obama budget and it'll get voted down by a large majority vote in the republicans' loss -- see.
Obama's representatives of hopeless budgeted couldn't -- as -- it really won't tell us.
Is so much.
And I the presidential election here.
Brit Hume -- always it's great to have you with us and -- --
