Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blamed citizen suppression today, specifically in the crucial state of Wisconsin, for her 2016 loss to Donald Trump.
Reacting Friday on “Fox & Pals,” former Clinton campaign strategist Mark Penn stated the primary factor for Clinton’s loss was Trump turning working-class voters far from the Democrats.
” Authorities [in Wisconsin] made every reason in the books to prevent individuals from voting,” Clinton stated Tuesday at George Washington University.

” You can run the finest campaign and have the best strategies and get the election and win the popular vote and you can lose the Electoral College and therefore the election,” she included.
Clinton appeared to claim that she lost voters because the Supreme Court struck down a part of the Ballot Rights Act. She called the 2018 midterm elections a ” case study in voter suppression,” arguing it is the factor Stacey Abrams lost the Georgia gubernatorial race.

Penn stated Clinton might have put herself in a strong position to win the nomination once again in 2020, however instead, her poll numbers have actually gradually decreased.
” If she had conceded the election easily and spoke about the problems, she really would have remained in a fantastic position to return in today … her rankings are 10 percent below Donald Trump since she goes out and says it was all unreasonable,” Penn argued.

” I want she would yield the election. I think everyone would see her in a much better light if she did,” stated Penn, including that he has the “greatest regard” for Clinton which she has a “reasonable point” to try to drive voter turnout among Democrats.
