Hilary Clinton lost because…


Is Hilary Clinton to be blamed for Trump’s victory? Would another democratic presidential candidate have won? These questions continue to be debated so here’s my two cents. The real reason Hilary lost is slowly emerging and the Russian collusion is only part of that. A significant part also is those millions of hitherto apathetic voters who were galvanized by Trump’s lies and promises. No Democrat could have gotten those votes and they came out not because of Hilary but because of Trump. Ipso facto they would have come out regardless who the Democratic candidate would have been. Do note that not only did Hilary win the popular vote but she obtained more popular votes than Obama. A final point to note, although the media did not highlight this, is that many, especially males, voted for Trump or stayed away altogether because they could not come to grips with the reality of a woman being in the White House..any woman, not just Hilary. Misogyny is still very much entrenched in the American male psyche.
