"i've been watching hillary the last few days, she's totally unhinged." the republican has been blasting clinton over the fbi's renewed interest into her emails. the most recent mcclatchy marist poll found 51% of likely voters think clinton did something illegal. the group attributed the re interest in the emails to her slip in the polls-- now 46% to trump's 44%. even so, neither garlock or wilson thought much of the emails. they were just
