Even Democratic voters aren’t so inclined to believe that their party’s presidential nominee is a very honest candidate.
According to pollster Frank Luntz’s latest focus group results, Republicans and Democrats alike did not react well as they viewed a clip of Hillary Clinton contending that she has “tried” to “level with the American people.” However, according to Luntz’s results, Democrats reacted even more negatively than Republicans.
“That was one of the worst responses on the campaign trail I have ever seen — not just in this election,” Luntz said. “You don’t try to tell the truth. Either you do or you don’t.”
The pollster pontificated that Clinton’s negatives are higher than her positives because such responses seem to lack integrity.
Luntz’s focus group was also shown a CBS News report that debunked the former secretary of state’s claim that she came under sniper fire in Bosnia. Once again, both red and green lines drastically dropped, with the Democrats’ green line dropping below that of the Republicans’ red line.
