Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Democrats Figure Out Real Reason Hillary Clinton Lost…

Many people never expected GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump to beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

Several media outlets and experts put the odds in Clinton’s favor for the win, even as election night results came out.

when Trump did when, there was chaos, with an onslaught of calls for “resistance” that continues to this day. In the middle of the came accusations that he only won because of Russian interference with the election.

Now, according to MSN, a new theory has come out – how Trump’s when may have been because the Democrat party abandoned a part of their own base.

Matt Canter, a senior vice president of Global Strategy group, a “Democratic political firm,” said that more than two-thirds, or around 70 percent, of the reason Clinton lost can be laid at the feet of those people who voted for Obama in 2012, but left the Democrats for Trump in 2016:

“We have to make sure we learn the right lesson from 2016, that we don’t just draw the lesson that makes us feel good at night, make us sleep well at night.”

His firm made an analysis of the loss and distributed “their findings to senators, congressmen, fellow operatives and think tank wonks,” according to MSN.

According to the data, one place the Democratic party went wrong was in ignoring the constituency, said Canter:

“This idea that Democrats can somehow ignore this constituency and just turn out more of our voters, the math doesn’t work. We have to do both.”

Another factor may come down to the debate between persuasion versus turnout. “Center-left Democratic think tank” Third Way’s vice president for social policy and politics Lanae Erickson Hatalsky said some believe the persuasion approach to voters is “already a lost cause”:

“There’s still a real concern that persuasion is harder and costs more than mobilization, so let’s just triple down on getting out the people who already agree with us. And I think there’s a lot of worry that we don’t actually know how to persuade anymore, and so maybe we should just go talk to the people we agree with.”

Canter rejects talk of the Democratic party using Senator Bernie Sanders’s (D-VT) “economic populism” or a move “to the political middle” in order to win future elections, saying Democrats don’t need to become “Republican lite.” He recommends instead a focus on solving “the electoral challenge,” using the “good arguments” out there for how to do exactly that.

Fox News reported Trump did put some time and energy into campaigning in typically Democratic states.

Clinton ended up losing the “blue wall” states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, says the Detroit Free Press.
