FBI Director James Comey announced Friday (the Friday before a major holiday, notably) that his agency had reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private server. Prior to that announcement, however, Donald Trump had already gained three points on Clinton — and polls show that the public continues to think very little of the Democratic candidate:
More people are worried that an investigation into Clinton’s email will continue into her administration, 61 percent, than the 47 percent who think the same could happen to Trump and cases on Trump University.
Nearly half of those surveyed, 45 percent, say the Clinton emails were worse than the Watergate scandal, a talking point Trump has hammered since news broke Friday. More than eight in 10 Republicans say it is worse than Watergate.
If Trump’s smart, he’ll continue to hammer away at the email scandal and Clinton’s untrustworthiness. But if Clinton does make it into office, what are the chances that Tim Kaine will have to take over for her?
