Her blaming Comey's investigation for losing her the election is like a guy living beyond his means blaming a bank for calling in a loan for bankrupting him. She screwed up at so many turns, it would have been a miracle if she'd won. Meanwhile, Trump had beaten 16 Republican candidates (including those from the Deep Government trying to oust him now) whereas she was strongly challenged by a fringer socialist whom her party later sabotaged.

Hillary Clinton would probably be president if FBI Director James Comey had not sent a letter to Congress on Oct. 28. The letter, which said the FBI had “learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation” into the private email server that Clinton used as secretary of state, upended the news cycle and soon halved Clinton’s lead in the polls, imperiling her position in the Electoral College.
The letter isn’t the only reason that Clinton lost. It does not excuse every decision the Clinton campaign made. Other factors may have played a larger role in her defeat, and it’s up to Democrats to examine those as they choose their strategy for 2018 and 2020.
But the effect of those factors — say, Clinton’s decision to give paid speeches to investment banks, or her messaging on pocket-book issues, or the role that her gender played in the campaign — is hard to measure. The impact of Comey’s letter is comparatively easy to quantify, by contrast. At a maximum, it might have shifted the race by 3 or 4 percentage points toward Donald Trump, swinging Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Florida to him, perhaps along with North Carolina and Arizona. At a minimum, its impact might have been only a percentage point or so. Still, because Clinton lost Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin by less than 1 point, the letter was probably enough to change the outcome of the Electoral College.
I mean, Jesus, guys... this is simple math!

You are cherry-picking. Most polling still showed Clinton as winning. But she didn't. The sea-change wasn't over one issue (of which she suffered from many) it was over states that she refused to campaign in, or that she paid lip-service. They lashed out.

I don't think Jesus had anything to do with the Clinton loss, if he had, Sanders would now be president.



"The letter isn’t the only reason that Clinton lost. It does not excuse every decision the Clinton campaign made. Other factors may have played a larger role in her defeat"



PP, Your favorite progressive publisher and writer has written the introduction to a new book detailing why Clinton lost, the book could be titled, What Really Happened.

What is more deplorable, the idiot feminists who still revere her, despite the fact she tanked their chance at getting a woman in the White House. What they needed was a hard-worker, like a Thatcher; not a lazy, disinterested, elitist cow.
