Mark Alderman, chairman of Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies, discusses the Clinton campaign’s media struggles in a U.S. News & World Report article titled, “Clinton Can’t Win for Losing.” Despite the fact that Clinton has won more delegates than any other candidate in the race, Sanders and Trump included, she’s wrestling a negative narrative that describes her as a weak candidate. Mark explains that, “The Hillary Clinton story line is that ‘she is a bad candidate running a bad campaign in a bad year.’ That’s unfortunate, because the facts are very good. Not only is Clinton ahead of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in pledged delegates, but her lead is bigger than Obama’s was in 2008.” Mark adds that, “If Clinton does not prevail Tuesday night in California, the evening’s biggest delegate prize, the story is going to be, ‘he won again. She can’t put him away. Nobody loves her. Nobody likes her. Nobody wants her.’ And it’s all anti-factual.”
