An in-depth look as to why Hillary Clinton lost

Three weeks ago, I wrote a condensed version of the reasons why Hillary Clinton lost, but almost a year since the election, I would be glad to revisit my positions on last year’s election and why I think she lost. This is not to say that I have a bias against her. But I just want to write about the things that I think she missed.

First, let me get this out of the way, I think that Clinton lost because of her reluctance to run a campaign based on liberal policies. She thinks she ran a great campaign. But people do not agree. It turns out, Donald Trump is a better candidate than she is.

You cannot blame people if they see her as an insider as I believe she is. It should not be, the democratic party should be for the common men, instead, she ran like a Republican. And voters noticed that.

No one is sexist, here. She assumes the reason why she lost is that of the so-called ‘Bernie Bro’s i.e.Those liberal men in their 20’s who voted for Bernie Sanders in the primaries. The thing is, it is not true. There is no such thing as a Bernie bro. Because those kids are liberal, who saw something about Clinton that they did not approve of.

Russia, She blames them, she lost because of their alleged involvement with Trump. For they hack into the election servers. This can be very dangerous not just for the United States, but for the world. They alleged that Trump is Putin’s puppet he is not. There is no evidence for it. Trump is a unhinge and deranged person who has the nuclear code in his hands.

The Democrats should be careful of what they are alleging Trump. Because if they will set Trump off, They will be setting another world war. In the state of our weaponry today the world might not survive another war.

Clinton, when she was a senator from New York, voted like a Republican. Her record preceded her, as being somewhat of a mixed bag leaning conservative. She is not principled. In 2004, she said that marriage is just for a man and a woman. It’s no big deal because she and almost all of the other Democrats believe that too, but the problem is she is one of the last ones to flip sides in 2013. She is waiting for the polls to be at 60 percent. That happened by 2013.

The problem is for her, it made it impossible for true liberals see her as liberal. Because to them, she is flip-flopping. For them, marriage is the lowest hanging fruit.

She abandoned her base. She is extremely corrupt like her husband. In the issue of the transpacific partnership. She called it the ‘gold standard of trade’ the big problem is, that she is ripping off American jobs, Also TPP for those people who do not know is a hub for near slavery of people in countries like Bangladesh and Cambodia.

One of the outrageous things about Hillary Clinton and former President Clinton is the issue of the conflict of interest with their Clinton Foundation and their political endeavors. There are many incidences of fray interest happened while Hillary Clinton as secretary of state: one year it was Bill Clinton’s birthday, the country of Sadi Arabia gave a donation to the Clinton Foundation weeks later Hillary Clinton approved a weapons deal for Saudi Arabia clear corruption and Conflict of interest.

 

She did not bother mentioning that she is for lying to her base, that she is for Universal health care or Free college. Because she is not even for it. The heck with her, This is what affects young people today.for Universal health care or Free college. Because she is not even for it. The heck with her, This is what affects young people today.for Universal health care or Free college. Because she is not even for it. The heck with her, This is what affects young people today.

I want to talk about the big problem with Clinton’s campaign, She did not campaign that much. Whenever she did a campaign, she is with celebrities like LeBron James or Katy Perry. The idiots in her campaign who think that putting a celebrity with he is a really great idea to campaign for the coveted millennial vote, though she did get the majority of Millennials there is still eight percent who did not even bother writing her name.

This tactic will work at the opposite end of the political spectrum, but not her Democratic base. Look at what happened to the Republicans with Trump.

She abandoned the rust belt states, she did not even bother going there. While Trump is talking TPP to these people. She is fundraising with actor George Clooney. She also abandoned African Americans too.

There is a sense of complacency with her campaign. In the days leading towards the election, her running mate Senator Tim Cain twitted that he can look her daughter in her eyes and tell her that the glass ceiling is over. I paraphrase, but my point is there.running mate Senator Tim Cain twitted that he can look her daughter in her eyes and tell her that the glass ceiling is over. I paraphrase, but my point is there

There is no way she could have lost because the media is with her. Since the beginning of the Primaries, through the debates and to the general election. Plus Trump screws up because he tweets too much. Trump in the campaign trail said regarding women, I grab them by their pussy, I do not even wait. He also had the lowest approval rating in modern presidential campaign history with 65 percent.

She is too complacent of the polls, in the weeks leading up to the election, she was up five percentage points against him. The polling is right not reputing that, but she failed to see is there is two percent margin of error, ergo the lead is not even a lead. Donald Trump had a real fighting chance.

 

Finally, If Bernie Sanders won the primary’s, if the Democratic National Committee did not interfere in the primary’s then Trump will have a less chance of winning. There are polls that indicate that Bernie Sanders is the better candidate than she is. It sucks that for the next three to seven years the world will be on the edge of their seats with US president Donald J. Trump.
