Will: Hillary Should ‘Thank the Lord for Donald Trump’ for Distracting from Her Issues

‘She should get up every morning and thank the Lord for Donald Trump because he’s distracting attention from her troubles’

WALLACE: “Let’s go back to The Des Moines Register poll on Democrats, again, it shows Bernie Sanders has now closed within seven points of Hillary Clinton as she has lost one-third of her support since May among likely Democratic caucus-goers. George, the person running the poll said that this feels like 2008 all over again — referring of course to the race in which Hillary Clinton had a big lead, then got swept by and beaten by Barack Obama. What’s going on?”

WILL: “Well, although she was just seen their complaining about Donald Trump, she should get up every morning and thank the Lord for Donald Trump because he’s distracting attention from her troubles. Now, imagine what she’d be in this poll if all of the attention of the country were focused on her, because the more she campaigns and the more people see of her, the less they seem to like her. Partly, this is because in the Republican Party, the energy is on the right, Democratic Party is on the left, and Bernie Sanders is where the energy is. But a very talented Democratic poll-taker, Peter Hart, says go back to every election since the Second World War, start with Truman-Dewey, with the exception of the Nixon elections, the most likable candidate wins. Take all your fancy measurements, likability matters, and people do not seem to like the product.”
