After a Resounding Defeat, Democrats Look for Answers

61

In the early morning hours of November 9th, it became official: In one of the most stunning upsets in American history, Donald Trump had become the next president of the United States. His hardcore supporters, who never gave any credence to the polls, were not surprised, but Democrats and media liberals were brought to silence as they swallowed a very unexpected defeat.

After coming to terms with the new American reality, they began looking for answers. What went wrong? What could we have done differently? How could the polls have been so misleading? What will become of the Obama legacy? The precious, precious Obama legacy???

If you couldn’t hold back your laughter, don’t be ashamed. You weren’t alone.

Still, it has been and will be fascinating to watch these liberals – so cocky going into the election – try to figure out why the American people rejected Hillary Clinton in resounding numbers. Already, the blame list is long:

  • FBI Director James Comey
  • WikiLeaks
  • Russia
  • The media
  • Gary Johnson
  • White supremacy
  • Sexism

And so on.

The cold, hard truth, though, is that this result may have been etched in stone from the moment Clinton and Trump secured their respective nominations. The media portrayed this race as a battle between two of the most unpopular presidential candidates of all time, but that never felt quite right. Trump surged to defeat 17 Republicans and garner more primary votes than any Republican in history. He traveled the country, holding court at rallies packed with thousands and thousands of rabid supporters. He bounced back from scandal like he was made of Teflon. It wasn’t playing out in the traditional polls, but you couldn’t ignore the reality of his on-the-ground popularity.

Hillary, on the other hand, always felt like an “I guess so” candidate on the Democrat side. She held “rallies” in front of meager audiences who struggled to muster any real enthusiasm. She built her entire campaign on attacking Trump and his supporters, even slandering them as deplorables in one of her biggest missteps. Among the millennials who wanted Sanders, she was loathed. The polls said she would win, but it was hard to understand how that could be.

Maybe the Dems could have won with a Sanders or a Biden. Maybe they could have even won with Hillary, had she not been under FBI investigation for most of the last two years. Who can say.

But it doesn’t matter now, because the 2016 election is finally – Finally! – in the history books.

And if there’s any justice in the world, we will never have to see a Clinton in national politics ever again.


  • AFTER ALL THAT CHEATING AND PAID VOTERS AND LYING FROM THE DEMOCRATS AND THEY LOST. BUT MEDIA STILL REPORTING LIES AND TRUMP LIVED BY THE LAWS AND DEMOCRATS NEVER DID…

  • Dawn

    Amen

  • John Beach

    What people need, want and have a legitimate right to expect from elected leadership and government representatives are laws and policies which work. Had the policies of the current, outgoing administration been effective and worked, provably, the Democrats would have won the election. The fact is that people, citizens, are not satisfied with the manner in which government policies have worked. They are discontent with the uncertainty of their security because of domestic unrest, immigration and refugee policies, increasing healthcare costs, jobs and employment, the national debt and the disaster which the continuing “war on terror” has been overseas. For those of us who voted for conservative, republican change, a Clinton win would have meant more of the same, expensive, ineffective policies which have characterized democrat administrations for decades. That of which we are poignantly aware is the fact that it is the division of the nation over the fundamental concept of the rule of law, obviously objected to by those who protest the outcome of the election because that outcome is determined by the rule of law, which, because of the Electoral College, is not suspended pending the outcome of an election. This is a fact which is known by all.
    Every election has this fact of the permanence of the rule of law despite the unknown variable of majority rule.

    • John Beach, You have said it all quite well. i wish I had been able to say it mysel, but I could not have done so as eloquently as you have sir.

  • Arizona Don

    What went wrong? If you do not know now you never will. hillary considered herself entitled. She was not. She lied, over and over. The more she lied the more people began to see her as unqualified for the position of president. She also considered herself above the law and due a coronation. Consequently, she was seen as not only not qualified but also unworthy. What went wrong was they nominated a crooked thief. If hillary clinton was the best they had to offer it is no wonder the so called democrats did not win the election. It is obvious the main stream news media is self destructing and no longer has the influence it once had. It too is seen as dishonest and bordering criminal. Americans want and deserve the truth not lies!

    If hillary have had one ounce of humility she may have at least had a chance. However, that is not hillary!

    In the final analysis however, it is never something a democrat says or does that brings them down. Blame is always placed elsewhere. This failure is no different than all the many others. According to obama he has not made a mistake in eight years. But everything has gone wrong for him. Unless that is his idea of success.

  • My name is William , I am a 57 year old man . I never in my life went to vote for any Primary Election for president till this year 2017 . And my affiliation is Democratic . But i voted for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton . I can say it was the way the Democratic have been running the USA that got me to go out and vote for the first time . And to vote out side the Democratic box

  • If Democrats want real change then drop the 60’s radical left and embrace law and order and the constitution. Oh’ wait that is the conservative republican agenda. Then what do we need the democrats for?

  • The record of the DOW Jones 30 shows there was no problem with the economy until October of 2008 when it became clear Mr. Obama would be President. Look it up on Yahoo Financial. The DOW went up when John McCain was nominated in April and took a dive when Mr. Obama was nominated in June, but skipped along only slightly downward until October when it was obvious he was going to win and it did not start up again until Ben Bernanke put worthless paper into the retail banks that could then “play the market” thanks to Bill Clinton’s ending of Glass-Steagal so here were are!

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for more.

  • David Vranish

    I doubt the Democratic Party can be rebuilt! They are so infested with low class arrogant and criminal people it is impossible to change. If they did rid themselves of trash, there would probably be only a couple of thousand people left. For sure, the Clinton Crime family would have to go!

    • And also there was doubt if the republican party could have survived if Mr Trump had not won the election; that doubt because of the entrenched republicans in office that preferred a democrat win over a win by Trump. Interesting to note the defeat of many republicans for congress that snubbed Trump during their election campaigns.

      • Francisco Machado

        The victory of Trump is a tragedy for the Progressive wing of the Republican party since they can’t blame not acting on the promises with which they won the 2014 election upon the Democrats or upon the veto power of the President. They are confronted with the reality of having to do what they promised but had no intention of doing, actions to which they are actually ideologically opposed. Assuming Clinton would win and wishing to insure it, they publicly opposed Trump. They have, unfortunately for them and to the benefit of those Republican candidates who will oppose them when next they run for office, exposed their real political ideology. They were why the House funded the Obama disasters they had pledged to defund. Rather than try to tame the beast, they fed it, they curried favor with it. Now, through their support, it has grown to where it cannot be defeated without creating casualties.

    • Donald King

      And I’m doubting that the Republican Part can be salvaged unless they finally take notice of the fact that their constituents are tired of having their voices ignored. The NRC elite fought as hard against Trump as the Progressive/socialist did. This is their one shot at redeeming themselves. They have the next four years to show that they are finally going to represent us in actions instead of just lip service.

    • Roy Fredrichsen

      AW! That is terrible the poor Democrats lost. Their “gravy train” just ran out of steam and is screeching to a halt after they enjoyed one-way prosperity at the expense of the taxpayers and the taxpayers revolted. Now they will all have to find a job , assuming there are any more jobs other than minimum wage flipping hamburgers at Burger King or McDonalds.

  • tom

    How about people are tired of corrupt lying politicians. People finally saw thru the Clinton fiascal. One point that no one is talking about, hell she couldn’t even carry her former state of Arkansas, now that speaks volumes right there. They knew, as did most Americans that she was truly not fit to serve this country. She brought her defeat on herself, no scandal almost on a daily basis she gets elected. Her stupidity of making a comment of before there was Obama care it was Hillary Care, wrong it got defeated by congress. Also her showing no emotion of the Bengazhi crisis and repeating several times that there was no loss of lives there was just plain wrong. She screwed up as SOS but would never take the blame. Her constant lying and the continued scandals that presented themselves to the people every week, they just got tired of hearing about it. Then her almost non existant show of policy, nothing to change the Horizon just more of the same, and resting herself on the coattails of the current president. Not a smart move. If she hadn’t been so immoral unethical liar, and thief I am sure the outcome would have been different.

    • Donald Rowe

      Yes, quite true. She brought this whole mess down on herself. I don’t know if someone did some fanegling to get it all to come out just now, just before the election, but as I said, she did it all, and now those chickens have all come home to roost. Deal with it dearie. And yet, she blames Coumie, Obama, wikileaks, etc., everyone but herself. Typical. We can only hope that she’ll be too old to walk or stand on the stages by the time Trump’s terms are up.

  • raygun

    FINALLY, THE HARD WORKING PATRIOTIC AMERICAN TAX PAYERS WOKE UP AND SAW THE CORRUPT POLITICAL DC CRAP AND DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

  • Nobody liked Hillary?

    • ld

      well, what did you expect !,liar ,dishonest , power hungry , on a ego trip , only believes in what she can get for herself , and how much money she can get , who knows what else.

  • Cynthia

    Amen! Especially your last statement. May we NEVER see another clinton in National Politics EVER AGAIN!!!

  • I did not vote for Trump or Clinton. I voted for McMullin. I am question the wording regarding the success of Trump. The media uses words like “resounding defeat” etc. etc. There was only a difference of 72 in the electoral count and Clinton had 276 thousand more popular votes than Trump so where do they come up with a “resounding defeat”? I took the trouble of looking up the election results so maybe someone just posted the wrong numbers. If the numbers are correct, I would hardly call the outcome for Trump a “resounding defeat” over Clinton. They were both flawed candidates so I guess it doesn’t matter who won.

    First they came for the Muslims, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Muslim

    Then they came for the Hispanics and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Hispanics..

    Then they came for the poor and I did not speak out —
    Because I was not poor.

    Then they came for those in Social Security and I did not speak out – because I was not on Social Security.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    ( a variation on Martin Niemoller’s famous poem).

    • Mathew Molk

      Hey, I was one of the people that are speaking out against the moslems. They have to go before they kill all of us that will no convert and submit to sharia law like it says in their filthy Koran

      Be proud you are sending them invaders back where they came form. They will NEVER assimilate into our Judaeo/Christian country. THEY are the ones that will be coming for YOU.

    • Francisco Machado

      You lost hope too soon. Now, Trump’s been elected to the Presidency. Take heart! – On second thought, I note you didn’t mention “Then they came for the criminal illegal aliens” or “Then the came for the terrorists” – so you may be in more trouble than any of the other groups you mentioned. At least your right to arm yourself against potential assailants is, for now, safe.

  • PRAY THAT THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN, BUT PRESIDENT ELECT TRUMP, BE VERY CAREFUL, WE HAVE WORKED TO HARD TO LOSE YOU NOW.

    FROM A KOREAN WAR VET 51/53, A REG. DEM. ALL MY LIFE, BUT I VOTED FOR TRUMP.

    WHY ISN’T A LAW BEING ENFORCED BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY. THIS LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952.

    WHY DO YOU THINK ANYTHING OBAMA HAS DONE IS LEGAL, HE HAS CONFESSED TO BEING A MUSLIM ON NAVTION WIDE TV. EVERYTHING HE HAS SIGNED, OR ORDERED IN 8 YEARS IS ILLEGAL.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY HAD A MUSLIM FROM A RADICAL FAMILY AS HER TOP AIDE FOR 10 YEARS, HUMA COULD BE A PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS TO THE MUSLIM WORLD.

    WHY HAS OBAMA SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH MUSLIMS ANOTHER PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS. HE HAS DECLARED HIMSELF A MUSLIM.

    WHY DOES THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA SAY HE IS NOT A MUSLIM, WHEN I HAVE A LIST OF WHERE 34 TIMES HE HAS EITHER HELPED THEM OR SAID HE WAS ONE.

    WHY GET MAD AT PUTIN, HE SAID THAT THERE WAS NO PLACE IN RUSSIA FOR ANYONE THAT WOULD NOT FOLLOW THEIR LAW AND SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE, THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO TO A COUNTRY THAT DID.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY AND THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO HELP THE RADICAL MUSLIMS.

    WHY DID THIS ADMINSTRATION TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO?

    WHY TRADE 5 TERRIOST FROM CUBA FOR ONE TRAITOR?

    WHY TRY AND TAKE OUR GUNS? HITLER DID, & HISTORY TELLS US WHAT HAPPENED THERE.

    WHY ALLOW A MINIMUM OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS HERE IN THE STATES? MOST CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES. I PERSONALLY VERIFIED THE ONES IN SHAWNEE NATIONAL PARK, IN IL. AND THE ONE AT DOVEER, TN. AND THE FEMA CAMP IN EAST KY.

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINIA, CLOSE TO DC? ARE THEY TO TAKE WASHINGTON?

    WHY BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, SOME MORE THAN ONE, AT TAX PAYERS EXPENSE, WITH ARMED GUARDS? ARE THEY TO HOLD MUSLIMS?

    WHY ARE THEY BRINGING THOUSANDS OF YOUNG MUSLIMS HERE?

    WHY IS THE TAX PAYER HAVING TO FEED, CLOTH & HOUSE THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND OF MUSLIMS BEING BROUGHT HERE?

    WHY GIVE THE THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS BROUGHT IN FREE HEALTH CARE, SPENDING THOUSANDS FOR HOSPITAL CARE?

    WHY SEND BILLIONS TO MUSLIM COUNTRIES TRYING TO KILL US.

    YOU SAY THAT A MUSLIM TRY AT A TAKEOVER IS IMPOSSIBLE, I CAN TAKE 100 WELL ARMED PEOPLE AND TAKE ANY BASE IN 1 HOUR, OUR TROOPS ARE NOT ARMED.

    BETTER COAT ALL YOU AMMO WITH PIGS BLOOD OR GREASE, LET THE WORLD KNOW YOU ARE DOING SO.

    THE LAST WHY, WHY DONT THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA REPORT ALL THIS??? COULD THEY NOT BE FOR THE INVASION”

    • Mary Thoeni

      American bigotry and racism on display for the world to witness.Is it not beautiful to behold?

      No doubt this comment will be deleted, as it has been for the last 10 tines.

      • Mathew Molk

        If not wanting a stinking moslem to come and kill you and you family, which is required fo them by their filthy koran the kid. put me in wit the bigits.

        The :basket of detestable will be the ones that keep the moslem invaders off your back, so why are you bad rapping us?

      • Well, you’re still here! You must have confused us with those intolerant liberals; unlike them, we mostly welcome trolls because then we have the opportunity to differentiate them and us to the rest of the world.

        That’s why, in part, that Trump was elected President.
        While Hillary focused almost exclusively on attacking him, he responded with vision and hope. So best wishes to you and feel free to comment on all of us deplorable bigots and racers-er, make that racists!

      • Shut up.

    • How do we go about posting this on FB, Twitselter, Pintrest and all the other social medias so that the rest of the people may ask these same questions of themselves. These are things people need to know, but probably do not. I know some but I was not aware of most of this pertinent information.

    • Quite a list, and it is scary. Why has Obama been so bold and brash in his second term and never has considered what the American people wanted? Could it be that his actions and nonstop Executive orders are part of his agenda? Why are the liberals so caught up with extreme socialism? Why are the college professors and college students so brain washed about liberalism and not free discussion about policies and choices? Why did the Democrats not attend Israel’s leader’s speech to Congress? Why have crosses, Christmas, Pledge of Allegiance, Christian faith, and many aspects of our American heritage, been banned and/or reduced, yet we are to support the Muslim faith and increase their rights? These questions and many others have made US citizens fearful and angry about the direction of our Country and it’s corrupt leadership. Go President Elect Trump. Finally, we have a voice and a fighter to salvage America.

    The Electoral College does not vote until December 18th.
    On November 8th, the Electoral College represetatives were eoected.
    We the People do not elect a President.
    We the People have never elected a President.
    We the People cannot elect President — the Constitution does not permit us to do so.
    .Suggest you learn how your government actually functions.

      So what? – You actually think the electors are not going to vote for the person that got the most votes in their state?

      You only sound like a dunderhead with that commie rhetoric.

      Start saying it …..PRESIDENT TRUMP. The cackling witch and your lousy Marxist progressive ways are history.

      • dmbunce

        She is upset because she didn’t get a trophy for participation when she voted. Nope, she has to learn what defeat feels like.

  • Why can’t you democrats can’t accept TRUMP cause we Republicans accepted your Obama in 2008.Is it because you don’t want AMERICA TO BE REVIVED? Is it because you want a crook to still be in charged of us. Well we want a change and now we have that chance to revive AMERICA.

    • Chet

      It isn’t the Democrat voters – it is the big money and power behind the DemonRat party – George Soros. He lost billions when the US dollar and stock market did not tank after the election. By running the country down, creating discord, and undermining the legitimate authority of the elected President – he can run down the economy again and recover his money. EVIL MAN!

  • THE ANSWER FOR THE DEMOCRATS, IS TO QUIT LYING, STEALING AND GOING AGAINST GOD. THEY HAVE JUST FOUND OUT THAT GOD IS BIGGER THAN THE UNIVERSE. IF YOU DO NOT THINK THAT GOD WAS INVOLVED, THEN THINK ABOUT THE MOST RELIEGOUS GROUP IN THIS COUNTRY VOTING FOR TRUMP. THE 20 MILLION AMISH PEOPLE GAVE TRUMP OH, PA, MICH, FLA, AND NEARLY GAVE HIM VA, AND HELPED IN IND. WITHOUT THEM TRUMP WOULD HAVE LOST.

  • bob555

    Do the Democratic party want to win again & restore some integrity to their party? Just putting up candidates who are HONEST, have the American people’s interest first before their own money grabbing interest at heart,
    try running a campaign without CHEATING & manipulating the new media to report facts & not fiction.
    Unfortunately that’s sometime the “ELITISTS ” & the puppet masters who run the Democratic party will ever do.
    As the Japanese Emperor said after they bombed Pearl Harbor ” I’m afraid we have woken up a sleeping giant & will suffer in the end “. The SLEEPING GIANT, taken for grant, the silent American voter has ( as shown through Wikileaks ) been awakened & wouldn’t stand for the corruption that has been a part of our government in both parties for decades.

    • don

      Another issue the democrats may consider is stop trying to take guns away from law abiding citizens. All my family at one time used to be democrats. Now, none of us are and the gun issue is the reason why.

    • Chet

      Your right – Obama was like Pearl Harbor – a sneak attack by a foreign entity set on the destruction of the USA.

  • Clarence

    I would like to know WHY Obummer hasn’t made a State of the Union broadcast, denouncing all the riots and unlawful assembly. Why hasn;t he told the people to return to their homes and stop the civil unrest……Can you tell me WHY he hasn’t done this ?

  • DeborahG

    I hope the left DNC DOES go as far left as they think is good. They are simply signing their death warrent. I’m all for it. America will never embrace it

  • Gregory OBrien

    When OBama was elected we didn’t riot we gave him a chance we’ll he Fd that up now it’s our turn so you minions should back down and give Trump a chance grow up and stop being spoiled babies it’s over you LOST with a bad call for a candidate with a bad history.

    You thought is spot on the money. They found out there is more to this country then DC, NY and LA and we came back filled with “a terrible resolve” . Clinton and their Marxist commie and leitest pals are done for. We are going back to the real America again.

    God bless you and all the American Patriots that made this wonderful thing happen.

  • Jeanette

    I really didn’t think too much about it, until now, but I am sure that it is true that without the Amish we probably couldn’t have won. I didn’t really understand how Pennsylvania went red when it did …I was glad it did , but I really thought that the Democrats had that one “in the bag”…and they did, too. But I remember seeing the clips of all of those Amish who came to the Trump rallies…hundreds of them, and to me, that said volumes ! They are people who , pretty much , stay among themselves and live in a somewhat different society than most of us do but they dearly love God and their Country. To them, at this election, there was no separation of “Church and State”. These people, who quietly, keep to themselves, spoke loudly and clearly so that no one could misunderstand what was in their hearts and minds. Because of their quiet lives that they , pretty much keep to themselves, I think that everyone , especially the establishment, did not realize what a large block that they were , and , of course , discounted their deep and abiding faith in God and their love for this country …THEIR country where they are privileged to be able to practices their faith and beliefs the way they chose without fear of loosing those rights to do so. But they understood the threat to their way of life and chose to defend it the best way that they had to do so. They came out in numbers and voted their conscience., which was their privilege and right to do. If there was ever a silent majority , it is those Amish people , but they didn’t remain silent, because they couldn’t .They realized , that if they did, they might loose what they have and hold so dearly. I don’t discount those of other faiths who voted for Trump because it took all of us to do what we did, but we can’t discount the help from Above either. We have been given a reprieve and now it is up to us, since God has done HIS part, for us to do OUR part , to “make this country great again.. ” !!! !

    Yes, it’s always amazing to me that when the Democrats run a candidate for some elected federal office that is blatantly dishonest, and it’s proveable, then they just can’t figure out why when they lose, that they did, indeed, lose. It’s like they just can’t believe the whole thing when they get home and have a little nap. When they wake up the news is still the same, “You Lost!!” I, on the other hand, would have been befuddled if the She Devil had won. I prayed, earnestly, that God not let her win and whether he answered my prayer or some of the many other prayers being put forward, I don’t know. I just know that I’m extremely happy that he won. Now he needs to surround himself with people that can help him, advise him and show him how it gets done. Then, hopefully, during his administration, we can do some of this “draining of the swamp” that he was always talking about, getting rid of some of the biggest thorns in the side of freedom loving people of all walks, from government. Let them go into the private world and see what it’s like to have to get up and go to work each morning.

  • He has surrounded himself with people that can help him.
    Guess what? the Liberals are again not happy, Surprise!!!!
    Not sure Romney is a good choice he just seems to smell untrustworthy betrayal.
    The Democrats just imploded and swallowed into a black hole they created.

    “After a Resounding Defeat, Democrats Look for Answers”
    The Democrats are “looking for answers”?
    What a joke!
    If you couldn’t see it before the election; you have to put yourself in the position of Hillary, when she was questioned about her conduct in the Benghazi affair! (Plus the actions of the Clintons before they became “New Yorkers”)!
    The Clintons are criminals; and that is that!

    Analyzing why the Democrats failed so resoundingly with 25% fewer electoral votes than Trump is step 1.
    Step 2 is accepting the results and step 3 is working with the newly elected officials for the betterment of the nation. They are still stalled on step 1.
