Response to bettyellen (Reply #102)

Wed Nov 16, 2016, 04:02 PM

113. Disapproval was one index of Clinton's unelectability.

The premise that her unpopularity didn't matter kind of falls apart given her crushing defeat. Obviously hers mattered more than Trump's.

I get that people would like for her ignominious failure to be for some other reason than her unsuitability as a candidate.

But the fact that she lost to another bad candidate only proves she was even less electable than Donald J. Trump.

There's no weaseling around that fact.
