CNN trumpeted Carly Fiorina’s rocketing to No. 2 behind Trump in the latest CNN/ORC poll; NBC News declared unequivocally that she won the debate; and the NY Times’ headline read she means business. Praise for Republicans, however, is always short-lived.
Carly Fiorina is a good candidate. She’s smart, has good ideas, is knowledgeable. She has done extremely well in two debates and in townhalls. She has been working very hard.
Her performance in the senatorial campaign against the weakened Barbara Boxer five years ago went well also, until near the end of the campaign when Boxer put this ad out.
If there is one thing people can’t stand, it’s outsourcing and layoffs by people perceived to be benefitting personally off the backs of labor.
Carly’s opponents will bludgeon her with it.
On the other hand, if her opponent is Hillary Clinton, it will be a lot harder for them to do, not so if it’s Bernie Sanders.
We had a candidate here on Long Island – a rich businessman – who would have done an excellent job but they had him on tape saying he outsourced to India because they were better workers than Americans. It killed his chances.
It wasn’t exactly the same situation, but it’s close.
I’m not trying to put Mrs. Fiorina down or discourage any supporters, but it is important for people to have the same information the Democrats have.
