Abstract

It is an understatement to state that Donald Trump’s victory took Democrats and many commentators by surprise. Rakib Ehsan takes a close look at just how Hillary Clinton lost the election, from Trump’s dominance among white voters, to his higher than expected support among Hispanics, and the enthusiasm gap between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. In order to regain the White House, he writes, Democrats will have to create a more sophisticated on-the-ground electoral strategy across all states and work better within the mechanics of the Electoral College system.
