The truth is that Hillary Clinton is a terrible candidate and a terrible person. The country hated her roughly like Trump. Its negative favorableness indices show it. The Democrats were overconfident and nominated a candidate they rejected in 2008 in favor of a single-term senator that no one had ever heard of before.
But D is overconfident after 8 years, and they thought they could throw out any old fish and win. And it was counterproductive. And the party could not handle that emotionally. What is really scary: it seems that they are about to do it again. The first Democratic candidates look horrible. Instead of nominating a charismatic moderate who could really win, they're going to get out of the next McGovern. A candidate so radical that the country will reject them.
I do not want 4 more years of Trump. But he has not been so bad. Nominate an extremist and vote for him. I did not do it in 2016.
