Hillary Clinton’s Five-Month E-mail Struggle

It has been five months of political pummeling, starting when Hillary Clinton first addressed the e-mail controversy at the UN press conference on March 10 until August 11 when she turned over her personal e-mail server and thumb drives with copies of e-mails.

Clinton has been in response mode for weeks, and the problem became even more aggravated on August 18 at a press conference when asked about servers being wiped clean, she said “with a cloth or something?” in a flippant attempt to highlight her lack of knowledge of servers and removing data.

Fifty-eight percent of the public and two-thirds of independent voters believe she is lying about having classified material on her personal server. Not surprising, 87 percent of Republicans believe she lied and 27 percent of Democrats. A majority of women (51%) believe she lied and two-thirds of men (66%). Numerous polls have shown the decline of her trust and favorability ratings.
