Ron Fournier: Clinton Campaign Believes ‘Trust Doesn’t Matter’

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” National Journal’s Ron Fournier said he is “blown away” that the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign people really think “trust doesn’t matter.”

Fournier said  “That’s what blows me away, they really don’t think this matters. If you ask the Clinton people as I have, they will say not only does not matter, but trust doesn’t matter. They have convinced themselves because Bill Clinton did beat Bob Dole and did beat Bush with his trust numbers being worse than theirs, they’ve learned from that lesson that Hillary Clinton, her trust numbers can go down as they have in most polls and it doesn’t matter,”

He added, “I think they are wrong. I think times have changed enough, she is not the kind of candidate he was, and mainly the times have changed in a way that transparency and accountability and integrity are really going to matter in this election and it’s not something she can just gloss over.”
