Democrats Don't Care About Hillary's Email Scandal

Hillary Clinton's national poll numbers have been falling for months, and pundits are quick to blame her ongoing email scandal. So are Republican politicians. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy lost his chance to become majority leader by connecting the email scandal and the Benghazi committee to Clinton's dropping numbers, fueling even more talk that emails are a major cause of Clinton's decline.

But the evidence points to a different culprit: The rise of Bernie Sanders.

Events at the first Democratic presidential primary debate on Tuesday highlighted just how unimportant the email scandal is for Democrats.

"The American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails," Sanders said to raucous applause from the Democratic audience. "Enough of the emails. Let's talk about the real issues facing America." That comment earned more noisy applause from the audience.

Most Democrats don't care about Clinton's emails. Fewer than 30 percent of Democrats said the email matter will be very or somewhat important in deciding their vote, according to a CBS poll conducted last week.

They should. They do not care because they do not want to think their front runner has issues. Check the polls she is not a shoe in any longer.

You're right, we couldn't care less. Just a ploy (and sadly the best one they could think of) to take HRC down. Where was the outrage about Colin Powell using a private email server. What about the 22 million emails that Karl Rove deleted from the private email server that he set up in the White House itself so he and Bush could circumvent the official records act. All well documented.

Democrats have no morals, scruples, conscience; for the most part they are heathen with no respect for God and His Word. Of course they believe they are so much better than all citizens and must make our decisions for us. In reality they are clueless and want nothing but power and money. The beat goes on...

Republicans and independents care. Yes, we're tired of hearing about it because she is not in jail yet. We'll be over her emails when she is tried and convicted.

'nuff said.
