MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” cut portions of an on-camera focus group that it considered “too negative” for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, co-host Joe Scarborough admitted Wednesday.
The Bloomberg Politics focus group was made up of New Hampshire Democratic voters. (RELATED: New Hampshire Focus Group Thinks Hillary Is An ‘Off-Putting,’ ‘Condescending,’ ‘Bitch’)
Halperin, Bloomberg Politics managing editor, said that once one of the voters brought up Clinton’s “personality issue,” other attendees said that “she’s polarizing and there’s aspects of her personality that they think men in particular won’t like.”
“We actually cut a good bit in there out that was even more negative of Hillary because we thought it was actually too negative and didn’t like some of the connotations there,” Scarborough said.
