Smerconish: The Economy Is Trump’s ‘Achilles Heel’

‘He may be able to shoot somebody on 5th Avenue, but the polling data and the focus group analysis suggests this really is his Achilles heel’

RUSH EXCERPT:

SMERCONISH: “I just listened and paid attention to the highlight reel. To hear what’s transpired in the last few weeks, you’d say that’s a real show. It did not stop anyone who showed up last night in new Hampshire. It did not stop anyone in Manchester who showed up to hear their guy. Nothing that you’ve articulated will dissuade those who supported him from doing so again with the exception, Brooke to your question of the economy. He may be able to shoot somebody on 5th Avenue, but the polling data and the focus group analysis suggests this really is his Achilles heel. He’s never been above 50% as president in terms of his approval rating, he’s been evaluated in the best of economic conditions and only comes in in the mid-40s.”
