For John, BLUF: I worry that so many people actually like Ms Clinton for President. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This look at Candidate Hillary Clinton, "Why Hillary Clinton’s numbers are down in the states that matter", from The Washington Post, can be summed up by this excerpt:
Part of this, as we've explained before, is that Clinton's favorability tends to swell when she's not running for office and dip when she is.About those EMails. I saw a cartoon on Facebook, in which Richard Nixon is complaining that 18 1/2 minutes missing from a tape makes him a crook, but 40,000 missing EMails means nothing for Ms Clinton. While not excusing Mr Nixon, the EMail thing is concerning. For one thing, she probably had a lot of items that were classified, like her daily schedule. In breaking codes, if you can find a plain text version here and compare it to an encrypted version there, you can figure out the cypher. This is a mess.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
