Pat Caddell: Hillary Clinton ‘Attacked the American People, She Didn’t Attack David Duke’


Recommended Posts


Veteran pollster Pat Caddell joined Wednesday’s edition of Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM to discuss the latest presidential polls and the continued fallout from Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment.

Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow asked Caddell if he thought Donald Trump’s five-point lead in the latest L.A. Times tracking poll was credible. Caddell described the L.A. Times methodology of querying a panel of voters daily as an “experimental approach,” and said he was “fascinated” by the results.

“I think it’s a credible approach,” he said. “Certainly I have a lot more interest in it than I do, for instance, the Washington Post poll, which is historically, in every election, cannot get the – some polls tilt one way, I guess, some tilt the other. This has always tilted over its sampling, overly Democratic. It’s a 10-point margin in their last poll, which showed Trump down 5. So if you take it to where it is, at best, basically a 5-point Democratic Party preference edge, you had basically a dead heat, but you know the Washington Post can’t report something like that.”

He noted that the L.A. Times doesn’t poll on Saturday, so the “big shift” from Clinton +1 to Trump +5 took less than a week. “We’re going to know a lot more in a couple of days. I’m really anxious to see the latest numbers we get out of our poll that’s in the field now,” he said, referring to the Breitbart News/Gravis poll, which he oversees.


Caddell expected to see the “impact of the health questions” about Hillary Clinton in the next Breitbart News poll, particularly the “stunning revelations” that “she fainted several times, the FBI statement that she claimed, because of her concussion, that she couldn’t remember some of her briefings and things.”


“She’s fit and ready to go, folks,” he said sarcastically.


Furthermore, he thought Clinton’s polling could suffer from “the whole thing about transparency, and not being forthcoming, and then her comment – ‘Well, we didn’t think it was that important,’ basically, when she was asked on CNN, ‘we didn’t think it was a big deal.’”


He noted how so many doctors, including those who have called into Breitbart News Daily, say “the first thing they should have done is taken her to a hospital” after Clinton collapsed on Sunday, making her refusal to do so into a question about her judgment, in the minds of voters.


Caddell didn’t want to forget about the other big Clinton story from the weekend, her statement that half of Trump’s voters belonged in a “basket of deplorables.”


“They’re going crazy on ‘Morning Joe’ this morning, because Mike Pence wouldn’t use the word ‘deplorable,’” he observed. “This is the usual game here. We’ll come up with a narrative word, and then we’ll start down every list of people in the world.”


“She attacked the American people. She didn’t attack David Duke,” Caddell stated firmly. “Pence denounced him in even harsher terms, but because he won’t play their game, which is to kind of suck you in, you just keep sliding into it.”



Nobody cares about David Duke. They do care about Her Arrogance.
