Ford O'Connell: ‘Authenticity And Trustworthiness’ Hurting Hillary Clinton

A recent slump in the polls illustrates the problems Hillary Clinton's campaign has with the public on "authenticity and trustworthiness," a political strategist tells The Hill.

There’s a reason the Democratic presidential front-runner has seen declining public ratings on honesty and favorability, GOP strategist Ford O'Connell said.

"What they're having right now is a trustworthy problem and authenticity problem,” O'Connell said in an interview with The Hill's Molly K. Hooper.

“Much of her problems stem from her own self-inflicted wounds,” he added. “The [Clinton] Foundation, the server, her inability to take stands on key issues in the general election. ... So those are her two biggest problems right now: authenticity and trustworthiness.”
