Every good lawyer out there knows you’re never supposed to ask a question to which you don’t already know the answer. Most journalists these days also follow the same rule. For those over at MSNBC, however, that clearly isn’t the case.
On Tuesday morning, MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle interviewed a mostly-female crowd of young millennial voters near where the vice presidential debate would be later held at Longwood University. Ruble asked them if they felt a personal connection to Hillary Clinton. Of course, you know how MSNBC wanted them to respond — but they asked the wrong question to illicit a positive response, certainly when a larger percentage of Americans believe in Bigfoot than find Hillary trustworthy.
Via Independent Journal Review:
The liberal network received a resounding answer that they might not have expected, which Mediaite noticed.
“I want to actually ask the crowd behind me — So Hillary Clinton as a candidate, do you feel connected to her?” Ruhle asked the women in the crowd.“No!” most of the women shouted in response. Other women can be seen on camera shaking their heads in disapproval.
Democrat Jennifer Granholm was unable to explain why the crowd of young female voters responded so negatively to the Democratic nominee. “I wish I knew,” she responded.
It was a moment that you could end up seeing in a Donald Trump campaign attack ad.
While Hillary does still boasts a sizeable lead against Trump when it comes to the female vote (52/34, according to NBC), it’s encouraging to see there are still plenty of women who refuse to vote for her simply “because she’s a woman.”
