The Atlantic article alleging President Donald Trump disparaged American World War I veterans will not “move the needle” on Election Day, RealClearPolitics co-founder Tom Bevan told “Fox News Sunday.”
The show’s host Bret Baier said there were "a lot of things that we thought were going to move the needle ahead of the 2016 election," particularly the Access Hollywood tape, where people thought that Trump’s "campaign was cratering a number of different times," and asked if the Atlantic article falls into that category.
Bevan responded, "I think it absolutely does. I mean if you are a supporter of Donald Trump you look at this piece, you think it’s a total hit job. The president’s denied it. His folks have denied it. They’re not gonna believe it. And if you’re a Biden supporter you look at it and say, 'Of course he said it. This is absolutely true.'"
As for the small number of people in the middle, particularly those who are in swing states, Bevan said "I don’t think we know [how they are going to react to the story], but I think this does fall into that category, that bucket of things that, in the final analysis, it’s not gonna move the needle and it’s not gonna matter on Election Day."
The Federalist’s Ben Domenech added that "This is the beginning of a series of anonymously sourced pieces that will go after the president in all manner of ways. You’re gonna see a lot more of this before Election Day."
