WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton’s campaign is trying — again — to explain one of the world’s most famous politicians to a skeptical public.
After a summer spent attacking rival Donald Trump, Clinton is refocusing on her vision for the country. The Democratic presidential candidate is trying to improve her standing as her poll numbers slip.
Her campaign is setting up a series of speeches about her plans. And the campaign will show Clinton in governing mode by scheduling meetings with world leaders.
She’s also accepted some creative media appearances where the public might see a warmer, funnier Clinton.
The strategy is designed to address Clinton’s biggest political liability: A majority of voters don’t trust her.
Strategists worry Clinton’s character issues have contributed to a lack of understanding about why she’s running.
