MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski slammed Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz Wednesday for attempting to control the election in Hillary Clinton’s favor by hosting just a few, poorly scheduled debates, and still failing.
“The DNC trying to control the election by making less debates? Good on ya. You screwed yourself,” Brzezinski said, as co-host Joe Scarborough pointed to Bernie Sander’s recent jump in the polls in Iowa and New Hampshire.
“With less than two weeks remaining before the Iowa caucuses, a new Monmouth poll of Democrats nationwide shows Bernie Sanders now trailing Hillary Clinton by 15 points. She led by 33 points a month ago,” Scarborough said.
“Debbie,” Brzezinski said with contempt, as Scarborough read off yet another poll that evidenced Sander’s success in the polls.
“But that comes as a new WMUR/CNN poll out of New Hampshire shows Bernie Sanders opening up a shocking, commanding 27-point lead over Clinton. He led by ten points in this poll back in December. Clinton led by eight points just in June,” Scarborough said.
Brzezinski then once again rebuked Wasserman Schultz for trying to manipulate the debates.
“Thank God you controlled that debate thing, because that really helped out,” Brzezinski said.
Scarborough proceeded to read off yet another round of polls that showed Clinton dropping and Sanders climbing.
“The Vermont senator is viewed favorably by 91 percent of New Hampshire Democrats polled, while Clinton is viewed favorably by 65 percent. Let’s look at some more trends. Since last year, Senator Sanders’s net favorable rating in New Hampshire has steadily improved, while Secretary Clinton's has eroded over the same period of time,” Scarborough said.
