2020 U.S. Election in Politics and World Events Posted March 4, 2020 On 2/21/2019 at 2:35 AM, Nightshade said: I am not attacking you, but this is a straight-up myth. Hillary got almost 66 million votes in 2016. The only candidate in history to get more American votes was Barack Obama (both in 2008 and 2012). She received more votes in that election than Bill Clinton did for either of his Presidential runs, or George W. Bush. Hillary's flaw, and it IS a real one, was that she spread her operation too thin trying to sweep Georgia and Arizona. She should've focused on the Blue Wall state of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. So can we stop saying she didn't inspire people? A lot of women were inspired, and crushed the day after the election. Let's not discount her completely. She couldn’t even fill a high school gym while Sanders was filling arenas with overflow crowds out and around the block.
