"He's won 24 elections already (12 primary and 12 general), most times by a landslide - he wouldn't be in office today if he "couldn't win" - agreed?"
Note: I haven't had the chance to research this fully, but I think he may have won more elections than all of his current primary opponents.
Or, if your mom likes snarky humor, you could ask "who told her to say that?".
The only candidate about whom that is routinely said is the good Dr. because it has been planted in peoples' heads by the media - and they don't even realize it's been done to them.
If you can get her to really think about what makes her say that, the awakening may begin. I can also tell you that from my experience - folks over 60-65 are highly programmed if they watch much TV.
