Transcript for Clinton vs. Trump: New Poll Shows High Unfavorability
Okay, Jon. Who are on this from Matthew dowd. He joins us from Austin. One thing we're seeing trump's response very much like his response to the San Bernardino attacks, but he's in a much different environment facing the united opposition of the president and secretary Clinton. Even some response from republicans. Yeah, George a wholly different environment now. He's actually up against people that have much higher favorable/unfavorable Numbers than he does in the course of this. The argument seems to be Donald Trump seems to be saying thought without action is dangerous and the president and Hillary Clinton seem to be saying, action without thought is dangerous and that is the debate in the course of this but Donald Trump is in a difficult position as we know. The polls have just recently came out show Donald Trump with a 70% unfavorable rating. Nobody has ever gotten elected president of the United States with a 70% -- That's the newest ABC news/"washington post" poll and Bloomberg shows Hillary Clinton opening up a double-digit lead and 55% of voters saying they'll never back trump. This is the problem with Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton has consolidated the democrats and moving into independents it looks like in the course of this. Obviously this race is very volatile but Donald Trump can't run a negative campaign when 55% of the voters say they will never consider voting for him. In order to win he has to figure out a way to lower that number and the only way to lower it is with some positive message which right now he doesn't seem capable of giving in the course of this. Of course, as you pointed out Hillary Clinton's you have favorable high as well, 55% but last night democratic primaries officially closed. Washington, D.C., the last one, big win for Hillary Clinton there then she had that peacemaking meeting with Bernie sanders afterwards. Both sides coming out saying it was a positive meeting and if they come together, that could also boost her. Well, and she needs that to come together because a big part of Bernie's support is the voters under 30 years old. I don't think a lot of them will go to Donald Trump. She needs their enthusiasm and having Bernie at her side will create that. Okay, Matthew dowd, thanks very much.
