donald trump and hillary clinton isn't going to break through that connection by mastering the material. the only way she can, say pollsters is essentially replacing one emotional reaction with another one, fear. but for those who don't see him as unfit, making him seem unfit isn't just about the facts. the voters who like him think he can surround himself with advisors, he was a success in business and in the primaries, so he must know something and they think judgment can replace smarts and experience which is why he continues to insist he was against military action in libya and iraq, even though that's not the case and he supported both. >> we'll see you sunday on "face the nation." and then today there is the third-party candidate who wants to be the third president johnson. he wants to put himself on the
