hillary clinton cnn interview with keilar 3

It’s still early in the presidential campaign, but Hillary fatigue may already be settling in with voters, based on a new Quinnipiac poll that shows Clinton trailing Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in the key swing states of Iowa, Virginia and Colorado.

The results are driven in part by her negative favorability ratings—she’s upside down in those three states—with voters still wary of her trustworthiness, given the Bengahzi, email and Clinton Foundation donor scandals that have dogged her campaign.

Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough said the poll numbers were “stunning,” and turned to Meet the Press host Chuck Todd for some analysis.

“ What does the Democratic Party do about numbers like this in Iowa, Virginia and other important swing states — Colorado for gosh sakes?” asked Scarborough.

Todd responded by saying that “If it wasn’t for Donald Trump, the biggest story of the summer would be Hillary Clinton’s problems solidifying herself inside the Democratic party.” He said that her drooping poll numbers shouldn’t come as a complete shock because “Whenever she’s been out front as the face of the Democratic Party, her numbers have gone down. They always have.”

Scarborough probed a little further, asking, “Why is that?” Todd answered, “You could simply say, she doesn’t ‘wear well.’”

The more the voters get to know her, the less they like her. That could give Republicans just enough of a margin to recapture the White House in 2016.

    The more we see you
    The more we hate you
    Somehow this feeling
    Just grows and grows
    With every sigh
    I become more mad about you
    A more lost without you
    And so it goes
    Can you imagine
    How much we hate you?
    The more we see you
    As years go by
    I know the only one
    For me can only be Trump
    My arms won’t free you
    And my heart won’t try
    Oh, the more we see you
    The more we hate you
    Somehow this feeling
    Just grows and grows

    This is just MSNBC trying to create interest and draw viewers. Who cares what the polls show now? The election is over a year away. As usual the press (and both sides do it) pumps up a candidate until they declare him or her the leader. Then they try to destroy the leader they made up to keep people watching or reading.
