In addition to blaming just about everyone and everything under the sun for her stunning loss to Donald Trump last November, Hillary Rodham Clinton is now also reportedly blaming Wisconsin’s voter ID law in her personal account of the 2016 election loss titled “What Happened.”
According to NTK Network, Clinton – who can’t bring herself to admit that her candidacy failed on its own lack of merit – has alleged that the voter ID law apparently helped “reduce turnout by 200,000 votes” in the Badger State. It probably didn’t help that she took Wisconsin for granted and didn’t really campaign there while Trump did.
Clinton has been traveling around to chat with anyone who listens, promoting her new book. Grabien News noted that she “believes that were it not for James Comey, Russia, Wikileaks, Facebook, fake news, voter ID laws, or America’s ‘endemic’ sexism and misogyny, she would currently be president of the United States.”

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?
There are a couple of problems Clinton can’t overcome. NTK’s report shows that the study on which she bases her Wisconsin argument appears to have reached false conclusions. Blaming everybody else merely reinforces the image of Clinton among her critics that she is incapable of looking in the mirror and pointing the finger of blame at the image she sees.
Clinton’s new book is “What Happened.” But there is a clear suggestion that this title is a horrible misnomer, because the candidate apparently doesn’t understand what happened at all.
Mistakes Clinton made brought voters out against her. She foolishly declared open war on the Second Amendment community. It may have played well to her left-wing base, but in fly-over America where guns, hunting and self-reliance are part of the social fabric, it’s toxic. The voter ID law didn’t cost her votes in Wisconsin, her own platform apparently did by bringing to the polls a lot more people who voted against her.
The Daily Caller also notes that her book ignored a major scandal in her campaign, the leak of debate questions that tilted her debates with Bernie Sanders in her favor. That was political icing on the cake, because of other problems Clinton had.
Perhaps the best analysis of Clinton’s current campaign to blame the world for her failure comes from a new Rasmussen Reports survey released Tuesday. Most voters, says Rasmussen, “don’t buy her excuses and think it’s time for her to step off the national stage.”
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 30% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Clinton still has a future in public life. Sixty-one percent (61%) say it’s time for her to retire,” Rasmussen said.
Forty Nine percent of voters “believe Clinton’s continued presence on the national stage is bad for the Democratic Party. Only 21% say her presence is good for her party, while 23% say it has no impact.”
The problem appears to be Clinton’s refusal to give up whatever part of the spotlight she can still grab. That’s not leadership it’s narcissism.
At this point in a movie script, it would be time for Clinton to go home and write her memoirs. But, oops, she’s done that.
