And so it goes

Few reasons:
>Hillary ran probably the worst campaign in anyone on this board's lifetime.
If you voted for Hillary, you were either just voting against Trump (which is a retarded way to vote) or were voting to let more brown people that you don't know and that don't speak your language into your country and steal away your job and rape your woman, all on your payroll. If all that wasn't enough, she basically and undeniably cheated her way through the primaries, aggravating the one important demographic that she might have resonated with - college-age people voting for the first time.
Which leads me to my second point:

>Hillary completely alienated the white majority, including white women.
Despite what the MSM and certain parts of /pol/ will tell you, most white people are very happy in their domestic relationship with a white partner of the opposite, and couples nearly always vote for the same candidate. In alienating white men, Hillary alienated white women as well, which she probably planned for with the whole #ImWithHer thing, which as we all know failed because only 14 year old girls care about hashtags.

Third reason:
>Trump galvanized young white men, which is the only demographic that matters
Tom the 21-year-old white man decides he's going to vote for Trump. Tom tells his girlfriend/wife (also of voting age) that he thinks Trump is the best candidate, and, as previously stated, partners tend to vote the same way. Now Tom's Baby Boomer parents bond with Tom over rebpulican politics, and he convinces them that Trump is the best candidate. The rest of the family sees that upstanding young Tom is voting for Trump and follows suit. Repeat with every white family in the U.S.

Fourth point:
>Trump is the American Dream
Everybody wants to be a rich old white guy with a strong lineage, married to a supermodel, and with billions of dollars to your name. If you don't, you're lying. In many ways, Trump was a manifestation of the promise many young people thought Obama didn't deliver on, ESPECIALLY outside of wealthy states like Cali and NY. Plus, he was funny. Everyone likes a funny guy, and the only thing funny about Hillary was that time a fly landed on her.

Fifth, final, most truthful and absolutely unarguable point:
>People hate change
Obama was the guy who promised change, and change he certainly did. In not a decade, he
>destroyed race relations
>let in millions of illegal immigrants
>sunk the US into a few trillion more dollars of debt
>created a sense of entitled leftist culture and its spawn, everyone's favourite REEEEing blue-haired thick-rimmed-glasses beard-touting smug cucks known to all in this vast electronic repository of human knowledge as the Social Justice Warrior
So, uh, that's kind of it. We tried change. It didn't work! The end. Hell, if you want more proof, think of the country so many of us on this board idolize: Japan, the most traditionalist, xenophobic, ethnically homogenous country young people can name. I'll tell you a secret: they would have voted Trump, too.

In closing, it was a perfect storm of so many elements, fortified by a hatred of tradition and a patient majority whose backs were broken by the last straw. Historians will likely study this phenomenon for years in the future, but we were all here to witness it as it unfolded.

Have a nice day!

Hillary was a god awful candidate, that even while playing easy mode for the election, even with cheating and everything shilling for her, she still ended up fucking up royally and acted like a bitch about it. There was so much corruption behind her revealed that not even the media could save her, and they made pretty shitty attempts by leaking pointless videos from a decade ago of Trump talking about touching vaginas... didn't work out to well as the only fuckers who cared were fuckers who weren't going to vote trump anyways, and even then, means nothing when you consider they have said worse and probably listen to rappers who say worse shit time after time. Also:
>>55836
>>55837
Lots of people outside of New York city and California were pretty much disappointed with Obama's shit and didn't really care about ultimately pointless issues like Gay marriage and trans people using bathrooms, not to mention Obama's attempt to fix the economy only really reached so far as coastal cities, and left mid west untouched, people wanted America to be great again, not just NYC and California.

I moderate for a forum where people mostly supported trump, is that suddenly a russian troll farm, despite the admin being in virginia?

>Russians are suddenly responsible for the corruption in Hillary's campaign shown in the email leaks
So if I found out that some one was secretely a serial killer, does that mean I'm the one who gets arrested and executed while he gets off with no punishment?
Also:
-Wikileaks isn't affiliated with any nation (Remember, they leaked shit about Russia as well a couple times)
-No one even knows whether the hacker was part of the Russian government or even a Russian citizen
-The emails showed quite a bit of corruption (All of Podesta's emails, that one email where Hillary was making fun of one of Bill Clinton's sexual partners almost commiting suicide, DNC being rigged, rigged debates, George Soros starting riots in trump rallies, etc) within the campaign, not to mention Hillary never said they were fake.
-Perception of Hillary was pretty much tainted by the whole corruption in the emails, quite a lot of people who were going to vote Bernie essentially became "Anyone but hillary" and went for Stein, Johnson, even trump because of their candidate essentially being rigged out and having their soul taken (Though it's debatable whether Sanders had a soul in the first place). As much as many soft left/centrists were uncomfortable about Trump, many said "thank god Hillary didn't win". Democrat turnout (in places that are not NYC and California) was pretty low as people just didn't want Hillary, and essentially voted against her (or didn't vote), as they wanted anyone but Hillary, even if it meant a Trump victory.

So yeah, the Russians didn't really do that much to affect the election, if anything, public perception in the swing states made trump win.
>But they hacked the election!
Explain that when more people probably voted with paper ballots
Also:
>That fucking recount which ended up resulting in Hillary losing even more because half the electors of Washington didn't even want to support the cunt
>New Hampshire has one elector jump to trump
>A useless texas protest
>>
>>56116
Sorta wanted to continue that last line but reached character limit
>A useless texas protest where Trump lost 2 electors, but of course they chose Ron Paul and some other guy (Seriously, did you really think texas electors would choose Hillary? The state is solid red, so of course if they're going to change, they'll choose another person that isn't a democrat)

So yeah, Trump's your president.
>But Russian hackers!
Doesn't change the fact that the emails showed corruptness in Hillary's campaign... hell, a good amount of the negative shit about Hillary didn't even come from the emails
>"It's good for a leader to have a public and a private side", which translates to "tell the public one thing, and then tell your rich donator friends the opposite, those peasants don't need to know shit"
>insulting Bernie voters (I did too, but of course this was a pretty crappy idea for a democratic candidate who had to work on trying to get Bernie voters on board, since Bernie had quite the lot of support) by calling them "Children in their parent's basement"

Hillary was a god awful candidate who wasn't with the times what so ever, and failed to the point of losing twice in a row to some random billionaire real estate mogul who had a reality TV show and was never in professional politics, it's hard to have any kind of sympathy when most of her loss can be blamed on her acting like a cunt and her campaign full of corrupt assholes. And of course instead of accepting failure like she told trump to do if he lost, she cried like a bitch, demanded a recount which only extended the painful election bullshit, and then cry like a bitch again, her and the democratic party learned fucking nothing even after such a monumental fuck up. They still bitch about identity politics and random non-issues that are only issues because modern social justice movements said they were, and they still try pandering to the SJW crowd, even when the rest of the country wishes that crowd would just die.

What >>55927 said. There's good reason our presidential election isn't designed around the popular vote.

"People's votes should matter less simply because of the geographic area they're in"

It's not like the Dakotas are relevant anyways, their voice doesn't get "heard" regardless. Only a handful of swing states do. And being a swing state has nothing to do with how big or small a state you are, just how your demographics happen to play out. Florida is a huge state and is a swing state and often plays a pivotal role in deciding the election.

California also has its fair share of Republicans who don't bother voting because of the electoral college. If they knew their vote mattered, they'd turn out too.

>>56313
You make it sound like people don't have the freedom to move where ever they damn well please. Demographics change based on individual choices. If you want to make a bigger political difference in how your vote matters why don't you move to a swing state? Would that be too inconvenient? Think of it this way: you get to lord over your social status of having grown up in a big city over the dumb rural idiots in person instead of behind a keyboard.

>>56321
As long as it's a two party system there's going to be swing states and bedrock states.Hillary thought she could get away with not campaigning in swing states because she thought they were bedrock states. That's call being foolish and running a poor campaign. Your argument hinges on "Woe is me. It's just not fair. My psychologically homogeneous state where you're not allowed to have your own opinion is more popular so we're being treated SO UNFAIR by the way the country has always done elections. Tradition no matter how logical and good it is is not progress. TEAR IT DOWN." When you're really thinking, "My candidate is my choice and she lost. That makes me a loser. Better cry about it on the internet."

>>56323
I'm not saying Trump was elected unfairly, they both knew the rules. As is Republicans have no reason to turn out in California, similar to Democrats in Texas.

It's essentially a roundabout way of taking your vote away. The electoral college made sense once upon a time. For a big disparate nation, counting each vote would be difficult. Any one could ballotstuff and influence results. It was simpler to have delegates sent forth to vote instead of trying to count individual ballots of millions in an era without electricity or speedy transportation. With electoral votes, there's much less incentive to ballotstuff.

In the modern era that's not a concern as voter fraud is virtually nonexistent and heavily monitored for by both parties.

Imagining what would have happened with this (Hillary wins electoral vote, but Trump wins popular vote) would have essentially resulted in democrats and liberals being smug assholes and heralding the Electoral college, literally everyone right now who cries about "But the popular vote!" would be smug pricks saying "Popular vote doesn't matter, electoral college matters, and thank god for that". It's pretty damn clear that most of the people bitching about "muh popular vote" just now are only complaining about it because Hillary lost the election and not because the electoral system is flawed.

Then again, lots of coins were flipped this election, Media and the entire democratic party were saying "Election can't be hacked", and said "We're going to accept the results like with every election"... and then Trump won, then suddenly "Russian hackers did this" and everyone crying for a recount, literally the same people who said the complete opposite.

This election was pretty legendary in the amount of salt coming from everywhere, and revealing double standards of just about everyone, and from what I see with the Democratic party and Mainstream media not learning anything from all of this, Trump is probably going to have another victory, and my god will it be an even saltier one
