Fifty-five percent of Americans say that Hillary Clinton can relate to and understand the problems of average citizens as well as other presidential candidates can, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll. By comparison, 37 percent of respondents disagreed, saying she can’t relate as well as other candidates can. These numbers come after Hillary Clinton declared that she and her husband were “dead broke” after leaving the White House in 2001. In a PBS interview, Hillary Clinton expressed regrets over her "dead broke" comments. “Well, I shouldn’t have said the five or so words that I said. But my inartful use of those few words doesn’t change who I am, what I’ve stood for my entire life, what I stand for today.”
