(National Sentinel) Election 2016: Well, it’s been 10 months since the November elections and today we’re greeted with the latest iteration of Hillary Clinton via her new book, “What Happened,” in which she blames everyone and everything but herself and Donald J. Trump for her election loss.
Speaking of Trump, a new survey from Rasmussen Reports on Clinton and the election she lost to him is revealing in so many ways.
Here are some highlights:
- Fully 61 percent of likely voters think Clinton needs to retire from politics, while just 30 percent think she shouldn’t.
- Half (49 percent) of voters believe Clinton’s continued presence on the national stage is bad for the Democratic Party. Only 21 percent say her presence is good for her party, while 23 percent say it has no impact.
- Forty-four percent say the weakness of her candidacy was the most likely reason for Clinton’s loss last November. Just 11 percent attribute the loss to the strength of her opponent.
Now here’s the real kicker: A large plurality of voters — 40 percent — “still agree with Clinton that outside factors beyond her control were the most likely reason.”
That’s down from 44 percent in May, but not by much.
So in other words, 40 percent of voters believe in at least one of Clinton’s election loss conspiracies — that the Russians, James Comey, misogyny, voter ID laws, negativity, hackers, Wikileaks, her gender, and, possibly, little green men who physically changed votes — are why she lost.
“While most Republicans (59%) and the majority (53%) of voters not affiliated with either major party think Clinton lost because of the weakness of her candidacy, 65% of Democrats blame other factors instead,” Rasmussen Reports said.
But alas, what are we to expect? In April, Rasmussen Reports noted, fully 61 percent of Democrats said they still believed Trump did not win fair and square (which explains why the legacy media continues to push this theory because they are preaching to a choir).
There isn’t a shred of proof that is true but that doesn’t seem to matter.
