Why Did Hillary Lose in 2016?
Updated: May 30, 2019
Ughh I know, who wants to beat this dead horse again? But -- SURPRISE -- it seems the Democratic Party may not have learned ANY lessons from the time their favorite establishment nominee lost to the dumbest political candidate in American history.
But first, I need to be honest about something real quick: I was a delegate for Bernie Sanders at the 2016 DNC Convention. And despite campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania during the general, I voted for Jill Stein.
Not because I actually support Jill Stein, but because I’m from NJ, so I knew Hillary would win regardless, and I -- like MANY others -- wanted to send a message to the Democratic Party. Had I lived in Pennsylvania, I would have voted for Hillary without reluctance.
Regardless, the point is, Democrats lost in 2016 because, for some bizarre reason, both political parties thought it'd be fun to nominate the worst political candidates in modern history, and, ya know… see what happens!
And since everyone, including Trump, was expecting Hillary to win, a lot of people either stayed home or voted 3rd party, because they didn’t want to vote for Hillary Clinton!
Maybe it was due to her pattern of following polls over integrity:
Or her largely banal yet ongoing FBI investigation:
Or her TERRIBLE judgment on foreign policy:
Or the fact that she basically took the Democratic Party hostage...
Because she felt entitled to a presidential coronation, before ascending the throne:
But justifications aside, that won’t happen again in 2020. However, let me be clear: That does NOT mean Democrats should be over-confident! Because we ALL know the Democratic Party's post-2016 slogan: “If anyone can screw up an easy thing, the DEMOCRATS can!”.
