Lanny Davis: Hillary Clinton's Poor Trustworthy Numbers Partly Due To "The Right-Wing Conspiracy"

|

In an appearance on the soon-to-be-canceled The Ed Show on MSNBC Thursday night, Clinton confidant Lanny Davis talked about a recent Quinnipiac poll that shows Hillary Clinton's trustworthy numbers in key battleground states in the 33 to 39% range.

"Well, it's certainly a worry that we see results about personal characteristics like trust," Davis said. "I find that not surprising, consistent with the numbers in the last several months where she's been subject to a lot of criticism on a number of issues in the national media, it's not just the right-wing conspiracy."

ED SCHULTZ, MSNBC: Lanny Davis, I have to ask you, there's a Quinnipiac poll out that shows that voters in Iowa, Virginia and also Colorado are struggling with trusting Hillary Clinton. How bad is this for her if it is at all? Is it a worry for the campaign?

LANNY DAVIS, CLINTON CONFIDANT: Well, it's certainly a worry that we see results about personal characteristics like trust. I find that not surprising, consistent with the numbers in the last several months where she's been subject to a lot of criticism on a number of issues in the national media, it's not just the right-wing conspiracy.

But on the key issues of qualities to be president, on strong leadership, on fighting back when she's down, all of the polls show that she has strong leadership numbers. And in the general election, she's still going to be very strong against what will be I think a strong candidate if it turns out to be Jeb Bush.
