Skip to comments.Poll: More Hillary Voters Regret Their 2016 Vote Than Trump Voters
Posted on 09/20/2017 11:01:47 AM PDT by Kaslin
According to a new national Politico/Morning Consult survey, 2016 election buyers' remorse is more prevalent among Hillary Clinton's voters than those who cast ballots for President Trump. "Among Clinton voters, 13 percent say they would either vote for a different candidate or not vote at all," the survey finds, while that number among Trump backers is four points lower. In other words...

The more she talks, the less popular she becomes. It's not necessarily all that surprising that there would be more agita and recriminations on the losing side of a major campaign, but we've been told endlessly that Trump is so uniquely terrible that it would stand to reason that feelings of horror and regret would be fairly prevalent among casual voters. Nope. And given the national climate, one might imagine legions of Americans taking greater pride than ever in their original act of "resistance." Not so in many cases, it seems. None of this will sit well with the failed candidate, who has written a tendentious, blame-filled account of the race in What Happened. In a passage that perfectly encapsulates her sneering entitlement and undying arrogance, Clinton writes that she's unwilling to grant "absolution" -- her word! -- to those who might regret their choices (content warning in the tweet):

Allahpundit writes what we're all thinking: "A non-sociopath approached by apologetic supporters after a tough loss would think 'How sweet of them to extend their well wishes' or 'I should have done more to get these people excited to turn out' or 'Did I really not visit Wisconsin once?' But her we are." Imagine how Her Highness would react if she encountered one of the scores of people who actually did vote for her, and now wish they hadn't. It might not even compute. This simmering bitterness and contempt seems directed especially at women who declined to follow the course of action Hillary set forth for them. She makes this fairly clear in her assessment of the voting patters of white females, a majority of whom went for Trump:
Hillary Clinton says white women voted against her because they felt pressure from men: https://t.co/ar2izBA434 pic.twitter.com/s01dhtW9UW— Glamour (@glamourmag) September 15, 2017
They couldn't possibly have reviewed their options and come to their own free-thinking conclusion that they weren't interested in this candidate, you see. It must have been "pressure" from the boys, or whatever. Mark Hemingway snarks, "does the fact that I think women are capable of making decisions independently make me a bigger feminist than Hillary Clinton?" But according to the fawning, Hillary-endorsed propaganda site "Verrit," don't you dare call her a flawed candidate. This is real -- er, I mean, "verritfied" -- folks:

After a brief flirtation with the idea, Hillary has now clarified that she's not going to contest the election results (on what basis?), but here's to hoping she changes her mind in the months leading up to next year's midterm elections. America is counting on you, Hill.
What about the dead people who voted for Hillary? Were they included in this poll?
100% disaffected Sanders supporters.
I can’t believe anyone who voted for BJ’s wife would EVER wish they’d voted Republican.
It was a Democrat Poll.
Ok. As long as they’re staying consistent.
I wish their had been a Republican candidate.
Yep, and the disappointment they felt wasn't toward the general election, it was toward the primary. Where, incidentally, their vote wasn't going to change anything anyway.
Still, this book tour is an amazing thing to watch. Today she styled herself Paul Revere, riding to warn the country that The Russians Are Coming. You can't make this stuff up.
Who keeps asking these useless questions?
‘What difference at this point does it make?”
Jeb! is that you?
11. Bernie Sanders
12. Women who didn’t support her enough or work hard
enough for her
13. Her campaign staff who didn’t work hard or smart enough
14. Obozo who didn’t work hard enough on her behalf
15. Bubba who didn’t work hard enough on her behalf
16. The media which didn’t do its job to help get her
17. Misogyny and “the game” to keep women in their place
If Jeb is your idea of a good candidate, I feel sorry for you. I said Republican, not Bush. They are mutually exclusive.
I'm glad there wasn't.
How much longer is Hillary going to be in the spotlight. At least
Bill has found other things and doesn’t seek the news. I guess as
long as she has the spotlight some other democrat is not featured
and building up a following.
Paula Revere, saw that. All she rates from me is BJ’s wife.
Amazon is thrilled she’s at #1, by whatever standards they use for leftist freaks who have minions write for them.
Female consensus died at about 9:00 on election eve when it became obvious that by voting for hillary like their friends advocated, many women lost the opportunity to vote for the winner. Voting for the perceived winner is desirable and requires no thought.
