She was overconfident.
She assumed that she could win by mobilizing the Democratic “base”.
That she didn’t need to get any new voters. That everyone would vote for her since she had the “moral high ground”.
On August 27th I wrote:
“DT is acknowledging a fear / emotion that large portions of the population hold. We can’t just ignore those people. Even if they’re wrong. It won’t work to say “You’re immoral! change!” We have to somehow convince them to change. Maybe having DT as president will force that conversation into the public instead of pretending that its not an issue.”
This turns out to have been the key point.
HRC and her supporters ignored this and lost.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the liberal establishment has learned this lesson yet.
Lets hope that they do.
