What were Hillary Clinton's mistakes during the 2016 election, and what can Democrats do to learn from this lesson to ensure their chances of losses will be minimized? Some say because Hillary had a slight lead in the popular vote, the solution is to get rid of the electoral college and replace it with the popular vote for Presidential elections. Donald Trump made a quote on Facebook.
If the election were based on total popular vote I would have campaigned in NY, Florida and California and won even bigger and more easily!
I have to agree with Donald on this one. Trump was campaigning all around America, especially the dozens of battleground states, instead of wasting resources campaigning in large Democratic stronghold states (California, Illinois, New York) that will never vote in the majority for a Republican. In a popular vote election, Trump would have focused and won a few million more votes from those populated blue states.
Perhaps FBI director James Comey or the Wikileaks emails had an impact, but polls showed that her unpopularity levels were consistent through the campaign. The real culprit for Hillary's loss was no one else but herself. Hillary's arrogance, bad judgment, lack of charisma, corruption, ties to big government in D.C. and big corporations over the average American, and health and mental problems were all factors to her loss.
It's very rare to see the Huffington Post criticize a Democrat, so when they write this article above criticizing Hillary Clinton, you know she really messed up. The article shows how Hillary's arrogance and negligence in reaching out to voters in the northern states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania were a disastrous failure. They were moderate blue states (except Ohio, a weak blue state) for decades and Hillary thought they were safe blue. Then Trump won all those states and thus the election. Hillary's health and mental problems were also factors why she did not travel to those states for public rallies like Trump, if Hillary ever did visit those states.
Watch this The Young Turks video.
The video title is "Who's To Blame For Hillary Clinton's Loss?" As TYT correctly points out, it's only Hillary to blame for her own loss. She marginally won the groups of loyal Democratic supporters, including Blacks, Latinos, women, young, and Bernie Sanders supporters. However, it was well short of what Obama won. And, of course, Hillary lost the support of independents and moderates big time.
