As Clinton’s National Popular Vote Grows, She Blames Comey For Loss

November 13th, 2016 · 13 Comments · Analysis and Comment, National Politics, News and Events

Can you imagine if Donald Trump had won the national popular vote losing the presidency to the electoral map? Yell, scream, the fix is in, the system is rigged. “I am the people’s president, let’s take to the streets in protest. Send these miserable, nasty, corrupt vermin a message. The electoral college is a disaster.”

Hillary Clinton has told her financial supporters why she lost, it’s James Comey’s fault. The FBI chief inscrutably inserted himself into the national election in the last days of campaigning, first suggesting there may be something to the email investigation after all, turning the election on its head, then in the weekend prior to Election Day (presumably to cover his ass) said, oh wait, there’s nothing there. Crack. Bam. Boom. The impact created more headlines playing into Trump’s narrative against Clinton. It’s rarely good to have your name in a headline that includes the FBI. And it may have altered outcomes in several battlegrounds states in which Trump won by a percentage point or less.

Meanwhile, Clinton’s national popular vote continues to grow, and grow and grow.

If the electoral shoe were on the other foot, Trump understandably would be screaming about Clinton’s illegitimacy. Don’t ya love it?
