66. Agree with this

I think social media played a much bigger role in her loss in that it divided Dems. After her loss here in Pennsylvania, I did a quick comparison of her vote vs the vote the Dem elected state atty general got by county. If she'd gotten the same number of votes he did in those counties where she underperformed him, she'd have won the state.

I think the 40 years of rightwing attacks on her and her husband took a toll as well. He was able to overcome it because he's a natural politician and people person, but she isn't.

Finally, we should think about what Comey said about not wanting her to be seen as illegitimate if she won. With the Rs in charge, there'd still be hearings going on about her email and server and the FBI would still be being excoriated for not letting Americans know about it. I believe things happen for a reason. Although what America is experiencing is painful, Clinton's loss has helped expose the GOP for what it is. They will be wiped out this November and American will be set on a path to renewal.
