CADDELL’S REALITY CHECK
While both entertaining and alarming, the presidential election is also unusual and full of distractions. Sometimes the significant moments are hard to detect. Veteran pollster Pat Caddell offers some insight.
“Let me just point this out. Politico, along with The Washington Post — they are ground zero for the conventional political wisdom and for the political class. And they just assume the election’s over. They thought it’s been over for a long time,” Mr. Caddell recently told Matthew Boyle, host of the SiriusXM program “Breitbart News Daily.”
“The people who don’t think it’s over are the Clinton people,” Mr. Caddell continued. “They’re very nervous, because they don’t have control of the dynamics. They’re doing everything they can to keep this a candidate-tocandidate election, which is their best ground.”
