Veteran pollster Pat Caddell may be a Democrat, but he’s always been a straight shooter.
He kept warning the Hillary Clinton camp not to get cocky during the campaign and count Trump out, and he was right.
Now as part of the inevitable post-election “autopsy,” Caddell is finding fault with the mainstream media in general and one network in particular, who he says “damaged themselves” with their unabashed bias. Can you guess which one?
Dan Riehl reports for Breitbart:
Pollster and strategist Pat Caddell told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam that he believes CNN has “certainly gotten their journalistic credentials terribly damaged.”
“I mean,” continued Caddell, “they’re all over WikiLeaks. … They are literally complicit with the Clinton campaign and working with them hand in glove.”
However, Caddell had some criticism for the new president as well.
Additionally, Caddell found President-elect Donald Trump’s decision not to pursue the Clinton email scandal as a legal matter a “mistake,” adding, “I wish he would revisit it.”
“After what he promised in the campaign and what he stood for and the fact that the Clintons were not going to be above the law, I’m just disappointed,” said Caddell. “I would have waited,” he added. “There’s more time for this. I just think it’s a mistake, and what it does, though, it begins to raise questions … about commitments he has made that resulted in his election.”
Time will tell whether or not Trump’s announcement was simply an ingenious move on his part, and that he plans to go ahead with prosecution after all.
If he doesn’t, many supporters will be disillusioned, after chanting “Lock her up!” at every Trump rally.
