“I know that not all of you are committed to my husband, and I respect that, but I want you to think about your candidate, his or her electability, and who’s going to win this race,” the former second lady said in unusually blunt remarks at a campaign event with educators at the Bookery in Manchester, New Hampshire.

“You know you may like another candidate better but you have to look at who’s going to win,” she said, adding that, “Joe is that person.”…

She said she was aware some voters will say polls “don’t mean anything, but if they’re consistent and if they’re consistently saying the same thing, I think you can’t dismiss that. I mean you all deal with facts.”
