The Political Incorrect podcast looks at all of issues of the week.
The Politically Incorrect podcast team of Joe Henderson, Tom Jackson and Jim Williams discuss the idea of a rigged election in Florida, the WikiLeaks emails of Hillary Clinton and the great week of Florida’s own Sen. Marco Rubio.
The idea of a rigged election was dismissed by Sen. Rubio which put him at odds, at least for a while, with the Republican nominee Donald Trump. As we know Trump is constantly on the stump with the message that the upcoming election on November 8th is going to be somehow rigged in a way that he will lose.
Meanwhile, a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll — conducted among 1,999 registered voters Oct. 13 through Oct. 15 — shows that Trump’s repeated warnings about a “rigged” election are having effect: 73 percent of Republicans think the election could be swiped from him. Just 17 percent of Democrats agree with the prospect of massive fraud at the ballot box.
The Politically Incorrect podcast team took a look at the WikiLeaks emails of the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Also, how Russia might be attempting to in some way influence the United States election process.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper offered up an interesting idea about WikiLeaks “Aren’t Republicans playing with fire here by accepting and applauding WikiLeaks? Because at some point they’re gonna run––WikiLeaks and the Russian hackers or whomever are gonna run out of people to hack who are Democrats, and they’re gonna say, ‘Well, let’s take a look at what Rudy Giuliani’s got going on.’ And at that point, it will be impossible for Republicans to say ‘Wait a second, these are stolen documents, we can’t give credence to them.’”
That is something Sen. Rubio was concerned about when spoke about the Republican’s glee over the WikiLeaks email dumps of information being used on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
While, Sen. Rubio is by no means a fan of Sec. Clinton, he is warning his fellow Republicans that those same folks at WikiLeaks could someday target the GOP.
“As our intelligence agencies have said, these leaks are an effort by a foreign government to interfere with our electoral process, and I will not indulge it,” Rubio told ABC News. “Further, I want to warn my fellow Republicans who may want to capitalize politically on these leaks: Today it is the Democrats. Tomorrow it could be us.”
