He's quite fervent about it, but he's right. For Trump to win, people had to switch sides. In 2012, concerning the popular, Obama won by a staggering 5 million votes. As of my last checking, Clinton is ahead by 220K. +5,000,000 -vs- +220,000 is quite the swing.
Not really. Estimates are 10 million fewer people turned out to vote, which would more than accommodate a swing of 5m without people switching from Obama to Trump.
Not saying it didn't happen, just saying the numbers don't make him right.
Yeah, but the math is solid and still there. Even though there are currently about 7 million less total votes present in the '16 election vs the 12, % is % and Trump won a much higher % of the total pool than Romney. This means that either a shit ton of Democrat voters stayed home, or those in the available pool swapped sides.
The Sanders clucsterfuck is (in my opinion), cost the DNC the seat. Like it or not, the DNC played some serious dirty pool with that guy and pissed off a ton of voters in the process.
It actually looks like ~2 million fewer people voted for Trump yesterday than they did for Romney in 2012, so it's looking more like a good chunk of previously left-leaning voters didn't show up.
