Skip to comments.The Real Reason Hillary Lost: Black People Just Donít Like Her

Back in September 2016 we noted that unprecedented black voter turnout was a huge component of Obamas victories in both 2008 and 2012. After running in the low-to-mid 50% range for decades, black voter participation surged to over 60% for Obama in 2008 and 2012, the highest levels ever recorded.
As we noted then, the key question for Hillary in 2016 was whether she should expect the same level of unprecedented black voter turnout that Obama was able to garner in his two elections? Now, courtesy of new 2016 voter data published today by the U.S. Census Bureau, we now know definitively that the answer to that question is a resounding NO.
After surging to 62% in 2012, an all-time record high, Black voter turnout once again dipped back to its historical range in 2016 with only 56% of Black voters turning up to support Hillary. Just doing some simple math, there are roughly 245 million voting age people in the United States and just over 13% of them, or 32.5 million, are Black. Therefore, a 6% decline in turnout equates to roughly 2 million votes, the overwhelming majority of which would have undoubtedly gone to Hillary.
Of course, despite the Russian Hacking blame game still being played by Clinton, as we noted back in September she and her team were acutely aware of their small enthusiasm issue among African American voters.

Affecting a drawl when speaking to black audiences was stupid of her.
But, but, but she wasn’t no ways tard..
I figured the folks who felt a racial solidarity with Obama would not feel the same towards a nasty old white woman.
It sure was a hoot to behold though.
You had to wonder how many she was turning off by that.
Further in WI we pased voter id and that stopped most - not all - milwaukee voter fraud from dems shutling in busses of black voters from chicago to vote up here under othr folks names.
So that affected black turnout numbers too.
But, but, but...she always carried hot sauce.
No one “likes” her...not even criminal bill. She is a pathetic human (if not sub-human).
People were saying that here for months before the election that she wouldn’t duplicate Obama’s numbers from black voters. And people were also saying here for months that the polls all pretended that she would.
Neither do any sane people.
I still like the barking best.
That and the petit mal head bobbing.
“But, but, but she wasnt no ways tard..”
She was, however, a tard
But, but... that’s impossible! She talked about carrying hot sauce in her purse!
“Affecting a drawl when speaking to black audiences was stupid of her.”
It worked for Obama.
She don’t carry the right kind of sauce in her purse.
LOL, so true...
Sidewalk body surfing comes to mind also...
Then it was almost as if she jumped up immediately (couple of hours later) and said, “No, nothing wrong here.”
“Black People Just Dont Like Her”
no surprise there, i mean really, who DOES like her?
