Hillary Clinton email flap won’t matter to voters

Hillary Clinton showed bad judgment by violating email rules.

Yes, she disregarded guidelines. A State Department audit says all of that. But here’s the thing: It won’t matter in November.

I’m betting the email flap won’t change one Hillary Clinton vote.

If you like Hillary, you can say that yes, she messed up, but it’s nothing major. She didn’t break any laws.

If you hate Hillary, you can say that she is untrustworthy, conniving, and everything else. Unworthy of the office of president.

Republicans will pounce on the latest report about the emails, of course.

But it won’t change anybody’s mind about how they are going to vote.

My feeling is that most people either don’t fully understand the email server issue, or don’t really care. They know Hillary did something she probably shouldn’t have, but let’s hear her talk about how she’s going to help the economy and help me put my children through school.

Republicans tried to go after Clinton with Benghazi, Libya. They are still trying, even though everybody involved says nothing more could have been done.

Hillary showed bad judgment. Period.

Donald Trump has also shown bad judgment in the past.

What are you folks going to do to make my life better? That’s what voters want to know.
