Hillary Clinton Called Democratic Voters Stupid-Fiction!

Hillary Clinton Called Democratic Voters Stupid-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:
Hillary Clinton once remarked that the average Democratic voter is plain stupid and easy to manipulate, according to Dick Morris’s book, ‘Rewriting History.”
The Truth:
Hillary Clinton wasn’t quoted as saying that the average Democratic voter is “just plain stupid” and “easy to manipulate” in Dick Morris’s 2005 book “Rewriting History.”
That rumor started with a meme posted at a Tumblr page called “Shocking Hillary Clinton Quotes” in October 2015. The meme has been widely shared on social media, leading many to believe that this quote actually came from Clinton:

Look, the average Democrat voter is just plain stupid. They’re easy to manipulate. That’s the easy part.

-Hillary Clinton, as told to Dick Morris in “Rewriting History,” 2005

However, we searched an electronic version of “Rewriting History” for any quotes from Clinton about Democrat voters being stupid or easily manipulated and found nothing. The quote doesn’t appear there, and it doesn’t appear anywhere else, either.
This fake Hillary Clinton quote about Democrats being stupid is very similar to a fake Donald Trump quote about Republican voters being the dumbest group of voters in the country. These fake quotes both surfaced around the same time, too.
