During a Tuesday interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Washington Post columnist David Ignatius stated that Hillary Clinton should be worried by the latest polls.
“She has basically lost half the lead that she had after the conventions,” Ignatius told host Joe Scarborough. “I think what should worry her is the argument that was so effective for her in that earlier period of the race, ‘Donald trump is psychologically unfit to be president'” is no longer as effective.
“Hillary Clinton didn’t have to say anything,” he continued. “She could have let Donald Trump go on TV every day and that was her campaign message.” (RELATED: CNN Poll Shows Trump Edging Out Clinton)
Ignatius claimed that Clinton’s argument “may be running out of steam.”
“Trump is trying to be more controlled, present a somewhat different face,” he explained. “So I think in the Clinton campaign there must be a serious question about whether this slippage will continue over the next two months and how they arrest it.”
Ignatius ended by noting that “they can’t make her a different candidate.”
“We know Hillary Clinton is the way she is. She has strengths as a person, as an administrator, but she has never been a great campaigner, especially in the close.”
