    Black voters in swing states may have cost Clinton the election

    Audience members listen as Hillary Clinton campaigns with First Lady Michelle Obama on Oct. 27, 2016, in Winston-Salem, N.C.

    President Barack Obama, a bona fide legend in the African American community, urged the community to vote for her and protect his legacy. R&B megastar Beyonce and backup dancers shimmied in pantsuits at a rally for her. Kerry Washington, Shonda Rhimes and other black Hollywood stars cut a campaign video on her behalf.


    And as her presidential campaign against Republican Donald Trump came down to the wire, Hillary Clinton herself stepped to the mic on "The Tom Joyner Morning Show," a popular, nationally syndicated radio program, to make her case to black voters.

    "The choice is clear. The stakes couldn't be higher," she told the hosts, warning that a Trump presidency could set black America back decades. "I'm going to do everything that I can to make people realize that this is not one you can sit out."

    Yet on Tuesday, the constituency that surged to the polls for Obama in record numbers -- fiercely punching far above its weight to support and defend the first black president -- didn't answer the call for Clinton, his chosen successor.

    Hillary Clinton failed to win over black, Hispanic and female voters - the charts that show why she lost the presidential election

    Voting in America is over.
    Donald Trump has emerged victorious over Hillary Clinton and will become the 45th President of the USA.

    Early signs as to how this unexpected result occurred can be seen in demographic exit poll data, with Clinton doing worse than expected among women, Hispanic voters and African Americans.

    By comparing Clinton's performance to Obama's in 2012 it is easy to see that she failed to appeal to a number of key voter groups. Groups that it was predicted she would have more support from.

    https://www.change.org/p/electoral-...make-hillary-clinton-president-on-december-19


    On December 19, the Electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win. However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine - which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!

    We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states' votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton. Why?

    Mr. Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic.

    Secretary Clinton WON THE POPULAR VOTE and should be President.

    Hillary won the popular vote. The only reason Trump "won" is because of the Electoral College.

    But the Electoral College can actually give the White House to either candidate. So why not use this most undemocratic of our institutions to ensure a democratic result?

    DNC Staffer Screams At Donna Brazile For Helping Elect Donald Trump

    Democrats' nerves are raw in Washington after Tuesday's stunning loss.
    huffingtonpost.com



    Donna Brazile, the interim leader of the Democratic National Committee, was giving what one attendee described as “a rip-roaring speech” to about 150 employees, about the need to have hope for wins going forward, when a staffer identified only as Zach stood up with a question.

    “Why should we trust you as chair to lead us through this?” he asked, according to two people in the room. “You backed a flawed candidate, and your friend [former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz] plotted through this to support your own gain and yourself.”

    Some DNC staffers started to boo and some told him to sit down. Brazile began to answer, but Zach had more to say.

    “You are part of the problem,” he continued, blaming Brazile for clearing the path for Trump’s victory by siding with Clinton early on. “You and your friends will die of old age and I’m going to die from climate change. You and your friends let this happen, which is going to cut 40 years off my life expectancy.”

    Zach gathered his things and began to walk out. When Brazile called after him, asking where he was going, he told her to go outside and “tell people there” why she should be leading the party.
