The mainstream media may be declaring the presidential race all but over for Republican Donald Trump. But at least one key Democratic insider is warning: Not so fast.
Who says so?
Ed Rendell, a former Pennsylvania governor and a long-time friend and political ally of Bill and Hillary Clinton.
On a recent radio show from Philadelphia, Rendell told host Rich Zeoli the Democratic Party ought not declare victory so fast for Clinton because it could end suppressing black voter turnout – and by logical extension, bring the opposite effect on Election Day.
He also made a couple shocking admissions – namely, that the mainstream media was in fact in the camp for Clinton.
His words, in Breitbart: “The majority of the media’s against Donald Trump and favors Hillary Clinton.”
He didn’t acknowledge what the Trump camp has been publicly wondering – that is, whether the polls were purposely skewed by left-leaning surveyers and members of the press.
But then he said this: “I think there’s a hidden Donald Trump vote. All this talk about it being over and now the real contest is the Senate is going to persuade a couple of Hillary Clinton voters and Democratic voters to say, ‘Well, what do I have to stand on line for an hour [to vote] for?”
Rendell cautioned the race was far from over, and that several factors still favored Donald Trump.
“The odds are that he’s going to lose,” Rendell said. “But I wouldn’t bet my life on it.”
