It’s a reprise of the old lesson for trial lawyers that warns never to ask a witness a question unless you are sure you know the answer. Apparently, MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle didn’t attend law school.
Via the Washington Examiner:
Ruhle asked a crowd of collegiate women Tuesday morning if they felt connected to Hillary Clinton, and the millennial voters responded with an enthusiastic “No!”
This was surely not the answer Ruhle or any reporter with the ultra-liberal MSNBC was banking on. There wasn’t even so much as lone, emasculated pajama boy voicing dissent from the back of the crowd, squeaking out a “yes” to counter out the disaffected masses.
Despite a Harvard University poll taken back in July that showed overwhelming support among millennials for Clinton over first-time presidential candidate Donald Trump, the youth vote has since seesawed back and forth. Lately, young people seem to have soured on both candidates, causing pollsters and pundits to wonder whether millennials will turn out for the election at all.
