On Sunday, CNN aired an interview between Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook.
CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Mook what happened, how was it possible that Hillary Clinton who was leading in many polls on election day ended up being defeated by Donald Trump.
Mook blamed FBI Director James Comey’s letter that re-opened the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s email practices, “We felt very good about where we were going into the last 10, 20 days of the election. I think it is hard to imagine the kind of impact that that letter had. Most of the public polling showed a distinct drop. We certainly saw that in our internal numbers.”
“The other reality is we were hoping for a stronger performance in some sectors, and a lot of the data was off in this race, so we have to reflect on all of those reasons,” Mook told Tapper as another reason why Clinton lost the election.
Tapper seemed surprised by this answer and asked Mook to elaborate on what sectors the Clinton campaign underperformed in.
“We were expecting to perform better with suburban women in particular. We saw those numbers a lot stronger than what happened on election day. We do think that was because of the Comey letter. We saw a lot of young people go to third party candidates. We think the letter had a lot to do with that as well. So there were a lot of reasons, but the lead among them in my view would be that letter from Director Comey,” Mook said regarding the Clinton campaign’s data.
