Poor polls, scandal, a cussed rival … how it’s all going wrong for Hillary Clinton

Some Democrats, such as progressive champion Elizabeth Warren, show signs of trying to rally around their beleaguered team captain, yet the ongoing FBI investigation also complicates the ability of the party’s most influential cheerleader to come to the rescue. At a press conference in Japan, the normally loquacious Barack Obama flat out refused to take a question from a journalist asking whether the email scandal undermined Clinton’s “trustworthiness”.

7. Who cares who won or lost...

 

.... it's not a race or just some contest. We have millions of people who voted for someone who......

- broke the rules and lied about it
- sent classified information to a person WITHOUT a security clearance
- and supports policies that will continue to keep us at the mercy of neoliberalism (look the term up if you have to......)

.....and we're just concerned with who wins the contest vs. whose policies are what the country needs right now. I wonder how many of those people now would vote give the results of that report??

This email issue, I honestly agree, didn't matter at all to me, really, 8 or 9 months ago. But, having experience myself in handling top secret material in the military, it sickens me to think that Clinton is somehow above the rules. We're saying to every sailor, marine, airman, and soldier who has a clearance that the rules don't apply to the "higher ups".

It's just sad to see so many people on here not giving a damn about fairness when it comes to how serious everyone else who holds a clearance in government has to take their responsibilities.

9. As soon as she has enough delegates to secure the nomination and

she can turn her full attention to defeating Trump, we will see her rise in the polls.

11. Did you by chance not read the State Dept IG report?

If you can read that report and seriously think it has not hurt HRC, you must live in a bubble. The report hit her where she is the weakest, trustworthiness. She polled badly before the report, the IG report will just reinforce the public's perceptions and worse influence those that were giving her the benefit of the doubt.
