A focus group gathered up by Frank Luntz and CBS spells bad news for Hillary Clinton and her atrocious honesty numbers.
When Luntz asked his panel about the topic of honesty, the discussion descended into a series of comments that are sure to leave the Clinton camp wincing.
One woman on the panel began by saying, “Hillary Clinton hasn’t done anything that has made her qualified.”
When Luntz started running off a list of her past positions such as “United States Senator, Secretary of State, First lady,” one of the participants responded, “titles aren’t accomplishments.”
The group was then shown a clip of Hillary in which she was unable to say that she’s always been honest with the American people.
The group was understandably disgusted with Clinton’s comments.
“You could turn off the sound and still see on her face that she was lying,” one woman explained. “She was the worst liar I think I’ve ever seen in my life.”
Another chimed in, “She lied about lying. I mean how hard is that?”
Via BizPac Review:
A member of a CBS News focus group didn’t hold back an inch in her appraisal of Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton. She called her “the worst liar” she’d ever seen in her life.
Pollster Frank Luntz played a clip of CBS newsman Scott Pelley’s interview with the former secretary of state, in which she indicated that she’d “always tried to” tell the truth.
After playing the clip, Luntz asked the CBS News “Meet the Press” focus group what, if anything, they found wrong with Clinton’s statement.
“You could turn off the sound and still see on her face that she was lying,” a woman said. “She was the worst liar I think I’ve ever seen in my life.”
Poll after poll has indicated that, of a vast majority of Democratic primary voters who say the issue of honesty and trustworthiness matters the most to them when choosing a candidate, Clinton lags behind her opponents by quite a bit.
Recently, The Political Insider ran down a list of just seven (a very short list) very noteworthy lies that Clinton has told over the years – ranging from how she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary, to her story about ducking sniper fire, and of course, Benghazi, in which she stood over the flag-draped coffins of murdered Americans and claimed that an insensitive YouTube video had incited the terrorist attack.
