Clinton: I Can Understand Why People Still Have Questions About Me

BY:

Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton gave her first interview since accepting the nomination to Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace.

Wallace said that in her acceptance speech, Clinton mentioned that she understood why people still had questions about her.

He pointed out that a majority of the American electorate had already made up their mind about Clinton.

"Well here's what I know Chris," she said. "I have work to do to make sure that ensure people know what I have done and what I will do. It's part of what this convention was about. I feel very comfortable that the more people learn about what I've actually done and not the caricature but the real deal, as my husband said in his remarks, they will see why I was elected twice to the United States Senate."

Clinton said that when she was elected to the Senate the second time she received 67 percent of the vote. She added that every time that she runs for office, there are different caricatures that come out of her. She said that voters put their focus on that instead of her actual accomplishments.

Wallace asked Clinton if she had legitimate reasons why the public would have any doubts about her honest and trustworthy numbers.

"Well, I think that's fair for Americans to have questions," she said.

Clinton attempted to make a swipe at her Republican opponent Donald Trump about his numbers, which Wallace quickly said that Trump has been asked about his untrustworthy numbers.

Clinton went on to tout her public service record and said that if the public really had questions about what she wanted to get accomplished in while in the White House, they can go back to her record.

A CNN poll from July 2016 showed that 68 percent of Americans do not view Clinton as honest or trustworthy, while only 30 percent find her honest and trustworthy.

The same CNN poll found that only 39 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the Democratic Party candidate, which is lower than the original poll taken in April 1992 right before her husband was elected president.
