Hillary Not Jill Stein Lost This Election All On Her Own - brilliant

The Democratic primaries were a harbinger of things to come in a general election matchup featuring Clinton and Trump. As US Uncut reported in March, Hillary Clinton’s victories in the March 1 Super Tuesday primaries all depended on voter turnout numbers lower than 2008 figures — the last time there was a contested Democratic primary. In all seven states Clinton won that day, each state had turnout anywhere between 4 percent and 50 percent lower than in 2008.

The data makes the argument all by itself. No amount of scapegoating heaped on Jill Stein supporters can explain Hillary Clinton losing traditional Democratic strongholds that Obama won not only once, but twice. In Detroit, Michigan, for example, Hillary Clinton got roughly 120,000 fewer votes than President Obama in 2012. Those votes made the difference in securing Trump’s victory, as Clinton lost Michigan by roughly half that number.

Former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell — one of the most senior officials within the Democratic Party apparatus — argued in a radio interview that even though Hillary Clinton was beloved by Democratic Party leadership, Bernie Sanders would have likely prevailed among the white, working-class rust belt constituency specifically due to his anti-establishment message.

“It would be interesting to think of how Bernie Sanders would’ve done. Bernie Sanders would’ve lost a few Republicans who voted for Hillary because of some of his economic views but he would’ve fought Donald pretty hard for those disaffected, angry, and frustrated workers,” Rendell said on 1210 WPHT in Philadelphia.

Had the Democratic Party nominated a candidate more attuned to the mood of voters in one of the most anti-establishment elections in generations, turnout could have been much higher, and America would have averted Trump’s victory.

Remember the above....

 

The party learned nothing from the Gore experience. Hillary threw not only Bernie under the bus she blew off the middle class as well.

 

She spent too much time listening to Groper Husband Bill and the people who finance our 24/7 wars aka BIG BANKS.

GORE LOST THE CAMPAIGN

 

In Florida, CNN’s exit polling showed Nader taking the same amount of votes from both Republicans and Democrats: 1 percent. Nader also took 4 percent of the independent vote. At the same time, 13 percent of registered Democrats voted for Bush!

 

Again, Gore couldn’t hold his own base and because of this, he lost.

 

The Democrats don’t say one word about the fact that 13 percent of their own party members voted for Bush.

 

It’s really difficult to make the argument that Ralph Nader cost Al Gore the 2000 election.

 

Also note: 16 percent of Clinton’s vote went to Bush! Again, Gore couldn’t hold the previous administration’s support.

 

Bush was declared the election’s winner even though thousands of valid votes had not been counted.

 

Finally, basic mathematics tells us that when someone pulled the lever for Nader in 2000, Bush’s tally did not rise by one singe vote and Gore’s tally did not decrease by one single vote.

 

 

Unless the voting machines were even more hackable than has already been demonstrated.

 

So, why do Democrats continue to focus blame Nader and the Greens? It’s certainly easier to vent one’s frustrations upon someone weaker than you than it is to confront powerful, corrupt institutions and a dysfunctional system.

 

And it’s even more attractive if one is part of that system, and if the weaker party could conceivably become a threat to one’s own power some day.

Jill who? Merrill, please just shut the fuck up already.

 

Practice what you preach .... you can have no thoughts that differ from mine.

 

Face it Hillary was a bad choice that was chosen by somewhat questionable activity...

 

Corruption sucks even when conservative Blue Dogs bring it on. Think about it.

 

Hillary thought she had it in the bag and so did Gore. Both lost to racist, sexist, fascist xenophobes who stir up fear ....

 

Where oh where did the old fashioned democratic party go? The party has been lead into the conservative jungle

with the Clinton's serving as guides.

You must LOVE bubbles!!! LOL!

 

If you liked the internet bubble, you'll LOVE this currency bubble about to pop.

 

At least you can blame Trump instead of finding lame excuses for Clinton!!!
