During a panel discussion on today’s Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd spoke with a couple of pollsters and came to the conclusion that regardless of what happens Tuesday night, the country is going to be extremely divided on the winner.
Bringing up the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, Todd noted that responders were asked to describe both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, and Todd expressed shock over some of the labels that were given.
Clinton voters described Trump as sexist and racist while Trump voters saw Hillary as a crook, liar and corrupt. Speaking to Fred Yang, Todd pointed out that those were only the word clouds they could air, as there were a whole bunch of “four-letter words” provided.
“My hair would be standing up if I had hair,” Yang said. “The question on Wednesday and going forward is what does the other side do and do we come together as a country. I think that’s a big X factor.”
“Half the country is gonna think we either elected a crook or a racist,” Todd sighed. “Unbelievable.”
