Todd: Hillary’s Donors ‘Are Panicking’

NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd stated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s donors “are panicking” on Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Todd said, “every time you think, ‘Okay, when is she at bottom?’ It feels like there’s a new bottom. Look, and we can all use the caveats all we want. ‘Oh, these general election numbers, how meaningful are they right now?’ But, a month ago, when she was having bad poll numbers, when it was starting to go down, one of the things they hung their hat on is, well, as bad as her numbers may look, she’s still in better shape when matched up against any Republican. Well, that’s not happening anymore, right? Now that — this is just pile, after pile, after pile. It’s like she’s got bad primary poll numbers, well, you explain it away with Sanders, but suddenly if her electability is in question, then that’s when the hand wringing truly begins and that’s when donors start panicking. I think they are panicking.”
