Dick Morris: Trump Attacks Show Hillary Has No Message
Friday, 09 Sep 2016 04:58 PM
Hillary Clinton has failed to come up with a true message and has instead based her presidential campaign around "vilifying" Donald Trump, political analyst Dick Morris said.
During an interview on EWTN's "World Over," Morris said a recent Politico story that tipped the scales toward Clinton is outdated. Trump, he said, is doing better than reported — and he has an articulated message to boot.
"That Politico story was based on polling data from Aug. 1 to Sept. 5. Huge window," Morris told host Raymond Arroyo. "Beginning of that window, Hillary was winning from her post-convention bounce. By the end of that window, she was sucking air because of the email scandal and the pay-for-play [scandal]. A more recent poll in Virginia has Hilary ahead by two, within the margin of error."

Morris then argued Clinton's campaign is based around blasting her opponent because she has not presented views on important issues.
"She has yet to sit down and decide on a message," Morris said. "Is she going to continue Obama's economic policies or fundamentally change them? Is she going to continue to fight ISIS the way he is or fundamentally change it?
"Is she going to continue with Obamacare as it falls apart of fundamentally change it? Is she running as an insurgent or a continuation of Obama? Is she a change agent or a status quo agent? She won't resolve that and I think that Hillary has no message and she fell into a trap of vilifying Trump — and that became her message."
Morris said Trump and the GOP need to start courting Bernie Sanders supporters with two months to go before election day.
"Republicans always fight with one hand: the right jab," Morris said. "Immigration, trade, social issues, taxes. Now we need to do that but also for the left hook and get the Bernie Sanders voters in by speaking about income inequality, the power of the banks, the need to have school choice, and go after votes we don't normally go after.
"The wonderful phrase I like to use from the White House days is, 'use your tools to fix their car.'"
Morris also was critical of a new Public Opinion Research Institute poll that claimed Clinton leads among Catholic voters, 55 percent to 32 percent. The difference, Morris said, are the Catholic Latino voters.
"A third of the Catholic vote is Latinos in the United States. If you just took non-Latino white Catholics, Trump would actually be winning by a significant margin," Morris said.
Morris is co-author of The New York Times best-seller, "Armageddon: How Trump Can Beat Hillary."
