Facing a backlash from the latest revelations about her private email server, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers are sliding. On Wednesday, conservative radio host Glenn Beck discussed just how much trouble Hillary Clinton could be in.
Beck brought up news of a poll showing that Clinton is receiving a smaller percentage of Democrats voting for her than Republican nominee Donald Trump has of Republicans voting for him.
“There is a new poll out that shows that Hillary Clinton is not getting as many votes from the Democrats, percentage-wise, as Donald Trump is with the Republicans," Beck said on his morning radio show. "So Donald Trump is more popular with the Republicans.”
He added, “So don’t tell me it’s about Never Trumpers. Because he is outperforming Hillary Clinton with his own crowd. Hillary Clinton is behind with the Democrats.”
GLENN: So there is a new poll out that shows that Hillary Clinton is not getting as many votes from the Democrats, percentage-wise, as Donald Trump is getting from the Republicans. So Donald Trump is more popular with the Republicans. So don't tell me it's about Never Trumpers because he's outperforming Hillary Clinton with his own crowd. Hillary Clinton is behind with the Democrats.
PAT: And isn't that according to Corey Lewandowski?
STU: Yeah, on CNN. We actually have the audio. At some point we can play it.
STU: But, yeah, Corey Lewandowski made that point. Certainly, that's a respectable source for Trump supporters.
GLENN: Now, do you think that was — according to him, because I haven't seen the survey he's reporting -- is that new? Because I've been watching the news the last couple of days looking for evidence that her voters are turning away and what I've even is her enthusiasm is turning away, which could hurt her.
STU: Yeah, there's two weird things -- two things explaining why the race is tightening. And it's not what you would normally think. You'd normally think people are going away from Hillary Clinton, and they're going towards Donald Trump.
What it seems to be is her enthusiasm is lowering. But her percentage isn't necessarily dropping that much. The issue is more that Trump has come up. And that's typically come from other places.
