He went up against the most formidable political machine in modern history -- and beat them
Truly you jest.The "formidable Clinton campaign macxhine'didnt listen to a couple of local Pa college professors who stated that Hillary's people did not recognize that, with states like Pa and NC and Ohio, A HUUUGE "camo cap red state" population exits outside the traditional "Blue zones" (Pa has ofetn been described as the cities of Pittsburgh nd Philly, separated by ALABAMA)
She didnt take care of that, while the Trump NE administrators did. I think the delivery of Pa and Ohio is a testimony to those two guys.
Politics isnt like going to the moon. Simplest things work
1..Clinton fucked up on her own devices for trying to hide what was (really) a totl screw up in how the campaign IT kiddies, set up their networks (turns out Hillary could only hndle an old version blackberry and was unable to work a PC).
Had she admitted early that she was a total boobnick, it would more or less hve blown over (even any mentions of Benghazi because the messages were just dually listed in her address book on the blackberry)
She didnt want to appear like a total moron so she , instead, did a cover up of incompetence (DUMB MOVE-because it looked like Machiavellian intent instead)
2. Making this election as a "TERM 3" of Obama world hurt her (no matter how great his ratings re -and will probably grow bigger with time), she firmly planted her role as the Washington insider (in presidential elections its a bad position to be in except when a president is running for a second term. Its hard to make great speeches about CHANGE, when your what the speech is about
3. Trump, by his style, lured her into saying the same things as he. She became a "me too" platform. People hate "Me too"
They wanted originality. All her original thoughts were covered in too much double speak and people dont like that also. Trump was a consumate salesman. He knew that he was selling something to the lowest IQ in the room, not the PhD;s. He also chose his words like he was talking to the boys.
Although, how he got away with his clarly woman hating rants was a mystery to me. (Ill be reading up on where his crowd psych was learnt.
He is like the Character in Elia Kazans "A Face in the Crowd", a demagogue.
Will he show us anything beyond the campaign?? I hope so, but Im not betting the farm on it.
