Reports of my campaign's death are greatly exaggerated.
Hillary's pretty much toast. Or at least that's the sound political analysis
flowing from Washington these days.
So Hillary's press shop decided to cut through the dire predictions with some of its own searing insights, and that they did, reports Nick Gass.
Clinton has so much trouble, a decidedly tongue-in-cheek (Jennifer) Palmieri wrote, that one poll showed that “she only had a higher favorability number than any other candidate it tested.” In fact, she added, Clinton is polling a “disastrous” 68 percent in approval among Hispanic voters (according to a Univision poll out Thursday), and “only leads her closest competition,” Jeb Bush, by 37 points in that survey.
The post also touted Clinton’s record fundraising and cash on hand. Clinton’s campaign raised $47.5 million in the last quarter, according to filings.
On the polling front, despite gains by independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Clinton is averaging a lead of 40.5 percentage points among Democratic voters in the latest national polls, according to the Real Clear Politics average of the past three weeks.
One thing is true—it seems fair to say that Donald Trump upstaged Hillary this week. Just a guess that her campaign isn't sweating it.
