Help Me Solve the Mystery of Question 25

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Ladies and gentlemen, I present question 25 from the latest WaPo/ABC News poll:

Golly, I wonder where people got that idea from? In over a year of investigation, there’s been no evidence of a Foundation donor getting anything from Hillary Clinton more important than a better seat at a State Department luncheon. And yet 59 percent of Americans have come away with the impression that both the Foundation and Hillary Clinton personally are corrupt.

How could this be? It’s a chin scratcher, all right.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
