Transcript for New Issues Face Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump
Matthew dowd and Hillary Clinton and those -- that news story as well. Anthony wiener, a third time. This is going to get in the way of their message, also the continuing drip, drip, drip of these e-mails even as Hillary Clinton says and their contention is it shows no special action. It's an amazing situation that neither of these candidates, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, can seem to put away the other one because of their own problems that have developed in the course of this. I think we talk about the changes in Donald Trump's campaign. The best person that Donald Trump has going for him is Julian assange who has the capacity to release a bunch more e-mails that could get Hillary Clinton into trouble. I think we'll see it for the next 70 days. You saw this morning that new ad that Cecilia talked about. I'll play a little about it focused on the economy. In Hillary Clinton's America, the middle class gets crushed spending goes up, taxes go up. Hundreds of thousands of jobs disappear. It's more of the same but worse. I think a lot of supporters say, hey, it's about time. There is an ad focused on the number one issue in the campaign and focused on what everybody wants, change. Absolutely, that's the first time I think in 400 days we've actually seen a message that was pointed and that was right on. The economy is the number one issue. The people are upset with the status quo in the course of this and it's the first time we've seen an ad like that but that will not help unless Donald Trump stays on message. You have this speech coming up on Wednesday, immigration, his signature issue, can he come up with a consistent position? Well, he's changed positions so many times. We ouths to get ginger involved in forecasting where he will be next on this in the course of this. He's got to figure it out at some point. He's not a nuanced politician and if he tries to be his supporters will wonder about him. Matt dowd, thanks very much.
