Roberts asked Pelosi if Clinton could win when most Americans don’t trust her.
"Can you be a successful candidate, Leader Pelosi, if you don't have the people's trust?"
Pelosi dodged the question.
"Apparently in that poll they have other questions about whether she would be a good leader and that's a high number for her. Does she care about people like me? That's a high number for her. I think that some of these numbers are affected by some of the anti-things being said against her," Pelosi said.
Pelosi continued to avoid a direct answer.
"She's going to be–we have to have an election, as you know, from Maryland we have Martin O'Malley putting his name forth. We have Bernie Sanders putting his name forth. Who else, I don't know. I think it's healthy to have a debate. It's clear that right now Hillary Clinton is way out in front and there's a great deal excitement about having a woman president who is as capable as she is."
