Pollster Frank Luntz commissioned a Nevada focus group to rate the performances of the candidates in Wednesday final presidential debate and the low point of the night came from an answer by Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
The Democratic nominee was responding to a question about allegations that Clinton Foundation donors received special access to the State Department while she served as secretary of state, with Luntz characterizing her response as a “disaster” on Twitter.
As seen in the video, undecided voters in the focus group gave her response a score of 38 out of 100, while Donald Trump supporters gave it a score of 47 and Clinton supporters scored it at 50.

Trump received a much higher rating when he responded by saying the foundation is “a criminal enterprise” and calling on Clinton to return money received from countries that “treat women horribly.”
He also hit Clinton over the foundation’s controversial record of helping the people of Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake there.
“And I want to tell you, they hate the Clintons, because what’s happened in Haiti with the Clinton Foundation is a disgrace,” Trump said. “And you know it, and they know it, and everybody knows it.
The reaction on social media showed that Luntz had plenty of company in his assessment of Clinton’s response… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
@FrankLuntz He zinged her on Haiti but GOOD!

His “foundation” is a slush fund for portraits and lawsuit fees.
