Matthew Dowd, chief strategist for the Bush-Cheney '04 presidential campaign and current ABC News political analyst, tells ABC's George Stephanopoulos that Donald Trump is right, the system is rigged against outsiders.
STEPHANOPOULOS: You just heard [Trump's] convention manager talking there, saying the whole system is rigged, not just the rules they are playing under.
DOWD: They're right. The system was designed to be rigged, it is rigged on both sides of the aisle. It is not set up to be transparent, open and get all the voters involved.
The RNC is also right to say the rules are known... but it is a rigged system...
When you cancel the primary in Colorado and say we aren't going to do a primary, we'll do a whole new system, they're right, They system is broken. The political system on both sides is broken, it is a rigged system that only benefits certain people.
