Transcript for Hillary Clinton Gets Post-Convention Bounce
Let's talk to our little analysts Matthew dowd and Jon Karl. Jon, let me begin with you and that "The New York times" account. One of the things trump has said many times in the past that he received deferments and was ultimately kept out of the draft by a high lottery number. "The New York times" calls that account into question. It sure does, George. Trump has said that he had a phenomenal draft number and that's why ultimately he was kept out of the war. But this "New York times" investigation says he had five deferment, four for education, that last one for those bone spurs, according to "The times" would have made it virtually impossible for him to get drafted. Okay and, Matt, we now have a series of polls showing Hillary Clinton's bounce coming out of this convention and a lead in the six to eight-point range. Yeah, you know, we've saw -- we saw Donald Trump get a slight bump but Hillary Clinton got a bigger bump. It has less to do with the convention than the controversy that erupted around Donald Trump all self-inflicted. He should worry less about the bone spurs and more about shooting himself in the foot over and over and over again. Put on your political consultant hat. You've worked for both democrats and republicans. If Donald Trump called you in what would you tell him to do to fix this. The first thing I would say is don't be yourself but that would be I think difficult in the course of this. He has to get some level of discipline and quit reacting to people. He has to get on his message and quit reacting to every single person that he seems to get some level of slight in the course of this. When he's doing that, he's capping himself, George. It's not that he's losing votes he's capping himself at a level he can't win at so in order to win he's got to get disciplined and stay on message. Jon, we saw him last night talking about the prospect of a rigged election. Yeah, this is something else. He said this before. After the 2012 election, he had a series of tweets that he said that this was clearly the result of a rigged election, Romney's loss, but he's setting up the possibility of if he loses, saying it was because he was cheated. Okay. Jon Karl, Matthew dowd, thank you very much.
