Democrat pundit and pontificator Paul Begala may have to eat his words regarding voter reaction to Hillary Clinton’s emailgate scandal. But considering the words Begala used in his profane statement, that would certainly not be a tasty meal:
“Voters do not give a sh*t. They do not even give a fa*t…,” recently proclaimed the cocky political operative whose loyalty to the Clintons is apparently undying.

According to a new tracking poll from Reuters/Ipsos, Hillary’s support among Democrats is going south faster than squawking geese fleeing the cold of winter.
Democratic support for Hillary Clinton’s expected presidential campaign is softening amid controversy over her use of personal email when secretary of state….

“About half of the adults surveyed, including 46 percent of Democrats, agreed there should be an independent review of all Clinton’s emails to ensure she turned over everything that is work related.”
