Hillary ran the worst presidential campaign ever

Posted by on Apr 19, 2017 at 8:25 am

So guess what? In the last weeks before the election, the Hillary Clinton campaign did no polling. No. Polling. Whatsoever. Oh, it had data. Lots and lots of data. Analytics, even. Data analytics! But it had no independent information on the overall field of battle in states like Florida, Michigan, Virginia, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania.

So when the election began to turn Donald Trump’s way, the Clinton campaign had no idea.

This is one of the thousand revelations in “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” the new book by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes that, for political junkies, redefines the word “juicy” for our time.

Campaign honcho Robby Mook “was worried about overspending . . . so he declined to use pollsters to track voter preferences in the final three weeks of the campaign.” Mook had learned from his time on the Obama 2012 campaign, Allen and Parnes write, that “old-school polling should be used for testing messages and gauging the sentiments of the electorate and that analytics were just as good for tracking which candidate was ahead and by how much in each state.”

Guess not.

Full story.

    Queefess Hilly has had everything given to her throughout her life.
    When she had to try and complete something on her own she fell flat on her face. (twice)
    Young Hilly probably would have won something, maybe Commissioner of Sewers or Czar of Flatulence but she is too old now.
    She should have known all was not well when there were hardly any people at her rallies and Trump had thousands.
    Also the amount of social media chatter favored Trump bigtime and this is the new metric of who is likely to win.

    From day one, Hillary knew she was going to win, she surrounded herself with people too afraid to give her the truth. She thought that all this going out and meet/greet with the average American was below her. Even if they did the polling, she would of ignored it. Look at her when she stated “why am I not 50 points ahead!”

    For the first time in her miserable life she cheated and LOST! Shows she couldn’t win if she was the only candidate to vote for.

    In the immortal words of the ever-wise Nelson Muntz:

    HA HA!
