CADDELL’S REAL­ITY CHECK

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

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.”
