During last nights NBC Dateline special on President Obamas legacy, the outgoing Commander-in-Chief reflected on 2016 and the surprise he felt at Donald Trumps win.
He told Lester Holt that he thinks he and his team are pretty good at seeing things comingbut not Trumps victory. Part of that, Obama said, is due to the fact that the polling was so off.
He admitted there was a lot of disappointment at Hillary Clintons loss, as well as the broader loss for the Democratic party.
Obama conceded, I had trouble transferring my personal popularity or support to the broader cause of the Democratic party.
He said it was difficult for him to both run the country and rebuild the grassroots party apparatus his part

He transferred his Unpopularity...
Well, nobody will ever describe this idiot as being a quart low.
ROFLMAO! It’s all about Bammie.
Dorkbama the Muslim eunuch is not even a good liar.
Actually, the only thing he was good at was at letting other people play gullible white quota aids.
And, he will always be remembered by the only job that he might have been qualified for...Baskin Robins ice cream seller.
Thanks, liberal quotas. Your quota boy have proven the ultimate exposure.
the only real base of support he has is black women....and only because he's married to Michelle, who's as angry as they are. If Michelle ditches Barky, or he runs off with his his boyfriend, that base of support will be gone.
Yeah that’s what it was.
Because your personal popularity is a lie from the same bullshitters in the media who pimped out polls showing Hillary winning by ten points and in every swing state.
There is NO substance to your “popularity” Zero. It’s all about not looking bad by criticizing the black President. Affirmative action popularity.
Trump ran against YOUR policies. You’re NOT that popular, dear POS.
If Obama can get the entire Democrat party to wring hands and point fingers together, and continue to suck the oxygen out of their tent, he will help the Republicans (not necessarily conservatives, that’s up to us.)
No wonder his wife and kids can’t stand him
Yep! Know, and have known, many.
“Failed to transfer?” Heck, he practically wiped them out.
What a Jackass!
Yeah, for the whole eight years you were _resident, Barky.
You and your fellow travelers are responsible for the biggest, most sustained Democrat electoral losses in history.
But you'll always have the press and the raving lunatic left, so there's at least that.
Hits the nail on the head as far as Odumbo is concerned. He exhibits them all. PUTZ!!
That's because horsecrap doesn't stick to itself but forms separate balls called "road apples" that are always in the way of advancement.
Hate to break it to you, Barky, but you’re only popular in the fake polls the Ministry of Propaganda puts out.
