Which explains why Hillary cannot. Instead, her plan now is to be the anti-Trump candidate.
From the New York Times:
Day After R.N.C. Ends, Hillary Clinton Presents Herself as the Anti-Trump
ORLANDO, Fla. — Dystopic. Hard to watch. Terrifying.
Hillary Clinton’s advisers didn’t mince words as her campaign watched Donald J. Trump accept the Republican Party’s nomination in Cleveland on Thursday night and his promise to end the “crime and violence that afflicts our nation.”
But mostly, Mrs. Clinton’s team felt a single emotion: pressure.
“The only thing standing between Donald Trump and the White House … is us,” the campaign posted on Instagram.
As the campaign prepares for the start of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Monday, donors, supporters and elected officials say the vision Mr. Trump presented for the nation raised the stakes on Mrs. Clinton to prevail in November.Usually the incumbent party candidate laughs of the challenger's convention.
Not this time. They are scared. They remember his first TV ad in his campaign.
Hillary's lead over Sabnders dropped by 20 points almost overnight.
Her minions spread the word to Never Trumpers and the liberal media that Trump's speech was too dark and turned of voters.
But she may be feeling deja vu. Eight years ago she lost to a charismatic populist. Money failed to stop him. Oppo research did not work then nor will it work now because she is the sleaziest politician in America -- after he husband of course. Trump was married three times? Hillary gave away state secrets.
I have said this before: This election is a referendum on Trump, which is exactly what he wants. People have decided on her. Now it is up to him to show that he is presidential. And as she attacks him, she lowers that bar.
