Ed Rendell: Clinton Campaign Should Be Worried About Overconfidence

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell expressed fear that supporters of Hillary Clinton may not show up at the polls on election day because they believe the former Secretary of State has a large enough polling lead that their vote no longer matters.

Rendell told Rich Zeoli on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT that both candidate's bases will turn out but that Clinton should be nervous about some of her more overconfident voters choosing to stay home rather than show up at the polls.
