Mike Barnicle on the traditional presidential candidates' low favorability ratings

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle assesses the sentiment behind low favorability ratings toward traditional presidential candidates in the 2016 election. “The estrangement from the [political] process extends beyond party lines. I think Hillary Clinton’s candidacy is a casualty of this estrangement ...and it’s partially responsible for Donald Trump’s rise in the polls. You ask people today if they are a Republican or Democrat and they say: ‘I’m neither, I’m pissed.’ Mike goes on to say the sentiment is not party specific but that Republicans and Democrats are tired of rising taxes and no bang for their buck, and the polarization of politics. Listen to the rest of Mike’s comments here, including his take on why Hillary Clinton’s campaign continues to struggle. “She simply does not wear well,” he adds.
