Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s vanishing lead over Republican challenger Donald J. Trump was a topic of discussion on Morning Joe, where the new McClatchy/Marist poll was cited, showing Clinton at 42 percent over Trump’s 39 percent. “You cannot underestimate the fact that two weeks ago the director of the FBI basically told the American people, (Hillary Clinton has) been lying to you for two years. It just reinforced so many negatives that she had coming into this race. You look at those numbers, you hear the anecdotal evidence. I am convinced that a Joe Biden or a John Kerry (running for president) would have been 70-30,” said veteran columnist and Morning Joe panelist Mike Barnicle. Only on MSNBC.
