40 mins enough time to transfer at Newark?

We have been offered a flight at the end of a multi trip which goes Washington to Newark to Dublin; all on United, we clear emmigration in Washington and bags booked through. Is 40 mins enough time to make connection? seems very little but responses to similar qestions are conflicting, some yes, some no. Tried to find out the terminals involved, not much luck, according to United's own website they have a 'dedicated' hub but still doesn't explain if we need to cghange terminals, either way no guarantee I suppose. All info much appreciated. We have to book all our flights this week.

Dulles is in Virginia . It is an hour from DC. Either way 40 minutes is tight. I

Very unlikely. Suppose you are 10th in line for takeoff? Suppose you have to wait for a gate when you arrive? Are you going to be first off the plane?

Always allow two hours for connections at any major airport.

even if you are in the same terminal C, the gate could be in a different wing which means you will have to walk out to the security and across to the next wing which could take all of 20 mins depending on where each gate is

Some Dulles flights land at terminal A which means y9ou have to take a bus and you will Not make it in time
