Obama voters are the real reason why Hillary lost election to Trump

Repeatedly whining about how she lost the 2016 election because of “misogynists,” “xenophobes,” and Russia the bogeyman, Hillary Clinton continues to be in deep denial. See:

But according to an analysis conducted by Democratic political firm Global Strategy Group, the real reason why Hillary lost is because she lost substantial portions of the Democratic base. As many as those who had voted for Obama in 2012 opted instead for Donald Trump.

Alex Roarty reports for McClatchy DC, May 1, 2017:

A select group of top Democratic Party strategists have used new data about last year’s presidential election to reach a startling conclusion about why Hillary Clinton lost. Now they just need to persuade the rest of the party they’re right.

Many Democrats have a shorthand explanation for Clinton’s defeat: Her base didn’t turn out, Donald Trump’s did and the difference was too much to overcome.

But new information shows that Clinton had a much bigger problem with voters who had supported President Barack Obama in 2012 but backed Trump four years later.

Those Obama-Trump voters, in fact, effectively accounted for more than two-thirds of the reason Clinton lost, according to Matt Canter, a senior vice president of the Democratic political firm Global Strategy Group. In his group’s analysis, about 70 percent of Clinton’s failure to reach Obama’s vote total in 2012 was because she lost these voters.

In recent months, Canter and other members of Global Strategy Group have delivered a detailed report of their findings to senators, congressmen, fellow operatives and think tank wonks – all part of an ongoing effort to educate party leaders about what the data says really happened in last year’s election.

“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,” Canter said.

His firm’s conclusion is shared broadly by other Democrats who have examined the data, including senior members of Clinton’s campaign and officials at the Democratic data and analytics firm Catalist. (The New York Times, doing its own analysis, reached a similar conclusion.)

There you have it, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Look in the mirror for the real reason why you lost the election to Trump.

  1. The real reason she lost is because the grassroots folks of America came out and voted for freedom instead of more of her Marxist Muslim loving dictatorship.

  2. I will add to Dr. Eowyn’s headline by saying that people were done with Obama and his failures to them; it was time for a move from the Demonrat Plantation.

  8. “We have to make sure we learn the right lesson from 2016″.
    How can you when you are in complete denial that the form of government you are espousing is untenable. Liberal = Mental illness.
    Keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
    SOCIALISM DOESN’T WORK. Never did. Never will.
    If you want to win become conservative. What’s wrong with being on the winning team with a winning strategery.
