Hillary Clinton sat down for a one-on-one interview with “Today’s” Matt Lauer, and he didn’t hold back on grilling her about her astonishingly poor polling number among Millennials, women, and people in general who care about honesty:
“Bernie Sanders got 82 percent of the votes from people under the age of 30,” Lauer explained. “Eighty-nine percent of people said they thought Bernie Sanders was basically honest; 58 percent said that about you. And this struck me – you are running to become perhaps an historic candidate, perhaps the first woman elected president, and right now if you look at Wisconsin, you basically split the women’s vote with Senator Sanders. When you lay in bed at night, how do you get your arms around that.”
Ouch. But, unsurprisingly, Clinton didn’t seem concerned:
“I just think about it from a much broader perspective,” she said, noting that she lost Wisconsin to President Obama by an even bigger margin in 2008.
“I am absolutely confident that if I’m so fortunate as to secure the Democratic nomination, we will unify the Democratic party – all parts of it.”
