Hillary Clinton Blames Election Losses on ‘Voter Suppression’
Former Secretary of State won't let her election loss lie
Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sympathized with failed 2018 Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams this week, claiming she too had her respective election stolen.
But in Clinton's case - ignore the electoral votes.
In Abrams' case, ignore the popular votes.
Speaking at the Defense of Democracy Conference at Georgetown University on Tuesday explained why she lost.
"You can run the best campaign. You can have the best plans. You can get the nomination. You can win the popular vote. And you can lose the Electoral College and therefore the election," Clinton said.
And Clinton did all of the above.
Clinton described how someone with a perfect plan can still lose an election.
“Number one,” she said.
“Voter suppression. We saw what happened in Georgia where Stacey Abrams should be governor of that state.”
Clinton went on to push previously debunked myths that circulated since the election.
“Registered voters were kept off the rolls," she said.
"Their registrations just piled up in some back office with no intention ever enroll them so that they could actually vote.”
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp won the 2018 gubernatorial election with 50.2% of the vote, and Abrams’ 48.8%.
Abrams’ lost by 54,723 votes, which wasn't even close.
Was turnout due to, as Clinton says, voter suppression?
Was there irregular or unusual purges of legitimate voters?
These myths are seemingly seeded out before the election to delegitimize its result in advance.
Abram's loss gives Clinton the perfect excuse to delegitimize her own soc called "stolen" election.
“We also saw what happened in 2016. Experts estimate that anywhere from 27,000 to 200,000 Wisconsin citizen voters, predominantly in Milwaukee, were turned away from the polls,” Clinton said Tuesday.
“That’s a lot of potential voters. They showed up, but maybe they didn’t have the correct form of identification, maybe the name on their driver’s license included a middle name or initial that wasn’t on their voter registration, but officials made every excuse in the book to prevent certain people from voting in that election.”
If anything, Hillary had way more help in the 2016 election than anybody actually realizes.
A recent study on the impact of alleged 'Google bias,' Hillary was give preferential treatment in Google searches.
The author of the study said that Hillary "has long depended on Google for both money and votes."
The findings were presented to Congress in July, which President Donald Trump recently tweeted saying his victory over Hillary Clinton might have been "even bigger than thought" if Google had not "manipulated" millions of votes for Clinton.
"Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election!" Trump tweeted.
