Clinton Flexes Campaign Muscle to Evade Email Controversy

Hillary Clinton’s ill-fated press conference regarding her email scandal failed to answer any substantive aspect of it. In fact, it opened the door to additional scrutiny following her patently incorrect statement that the entire matter was much ado about nothing because any private email to a State Department email address was automatically archived. The State Department later confirmed that the practice Clinton alluded to only took effect in February, roughly two years after she left office. Her handling of the situation underscored the very lack of transparency she was hoping to avoid.

Now, Clinton has taken a new tactic to deal with the matter. It does not deal with addressing the controversy in any manner critics which critics are demanding. Rather, it is focused on reaching out to potential voters on the issues that matter most to them: kitchen table issues. It is quite likely that Clinton is betting on the fact that the scandal matters more to the media than it does to voters.

Thus far, the scandal has failed to diminish her favorability among voters which stands at 53%. In fact, a recent poll suggests the email controversy is not important to her supporters at all. Christian Broda noticed that the poll also indicated she would easy capture the White House against any GOP challenger by double-digit margins. As part of her strategy, she is tweeting out comments regarding the issues she believes will amount to a winning strategy for her presidential campaign.
