Guy Benson, political editor of Townhall.com, told viewers on Monday's "Special Report with Bret Baier" that if Americans are changing their tune about President Trump, it probably still has to do with his then-opponent.
A recent ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that if voters had a do-over today, even more would vote for Donald Trump, with 43% choosing the current White House occupant and only 40% choosing Hillary Clinton.
Benson said "you would get a sense from the coverage that there is massive widespread buyers' remorse with President Trump and this poll suggests that that's just not the case."
Benson, a Fox News contributor, stated that certain obstacles still cloud things for the president. "The Russia stuff is interesting," Benson said. "It ought to be investigated," he continued.
The Townhall.com editor said that some disgruntled voters look at FBI Director James Comey's investigation into the former Secretary of State's private e-mail server as foul play but any loss really lies with the candidates themselves.
Benson explained "I think that what we're seeing now that even with a very controversial president whose numbers in that poll, internally, not very good would still defeat Mrs. Clinton." As for the new poll numbers, "maybe she was just a really lousy candidate and people still recognize that," Benson said.
