Ed Rendell Admits That Hillary Clinton Has An Enthusiasm Gap

Former Governor Ed Rendell (D-PA) appeared on MSNBC to discuss Hillary Clinton’s chances in Pennsylvania where recent polls show the race tightening.

MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson quoted a Washington Post article to Rendell, which stated: “African Americans are lukewarm compared to four and eight years ago, leaders of the community say, and distaste for Donald Trump is not enough to drive them to the polls. Many supporters of Bernie Sanders, who lost the state’s Democratic primary this spring by 12 points, say they might not vote at all.”

Faced with this evidence, Rendell conceded, “I think there is an enthusiasm gap.”
