People keep saying they were so sure Trump would beat Clinton but to the best of my memory not a single person saying this made the claim that Trump would lose the popular vote by a significant margin and then squeak in because of electoral college luck.It's the very reason I was quite sure Trump would beat Clinton. Democrats simply failed to realize how good Trump could sound and how well he knew how to disguise his real nature. They failed to take him seriously and gave us 4 years of living hell where the worst in people was made to sound OK and even proper.
I think you may get a glimpse of the truth about people like that when you see them eventually begin to ridicule their opposition. It's that contempt for others that is revealing.
If he could sound so good why did he get so many fewer votes than his opponent in both elections? That sounds like someone people dislike to me.
