Syndicated Columnist Charles Krauthammer told viewers on Wednesday's Special Report with Bret Baier that with the race tightening, American voters are right back where they started at beginning of the year.
Both candidates stumped in battleground states with Donald Trump in North Carolina and Hillary Clinton in Florida. New Fox News polls are showing a tight national race with Clinton having a three point lead over Trump but Florida poll shows Trump up by a couple of points in the Sunshine State.
"The enthusiasm for Trump surely exceeds that on the part of the Democrats for Hillary Clinton," is how Krauthammer explained the close numbers.
But it's more than that Krauthammer said because "when the bottom dropped out for just a few days of the Trump campaign...Trump could have just disappeared. He didn't. He's held his own."
The syndicated columnist was referencing when the Republican nominee was caught on tape making rude remarks about women but Krauthammer believes it's not just those comments that are narrowing the poll numbers, it's the issues that Clinton has been dodging too.
"There's been this Wikileaks releases which have cumulatively, not individually but cumulatively reinforced the impression of a thoroughly corrupt campaign...and you add ObamaCare, which is an extremely important issue, that swayed two mid-terms elections and crushed Democrats, Krauthammer said.
