“She won, but she lost,” Sen. Barbara Boxer said regarding Clinton’s 2016 election loss.
Former Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) blamed the Electoral College for Hillary Clinton’s stunning election loss on Tuesday during an interview on the Tavis Smiley show.
Smiley asked Boxer why she thought Clinton lost to Trump, given all the outrageous things Trump said during the election.
“The reason Secretary Clinton lost – [there] is going to be volumes of books written about it,” Boxer told Smiley.
Boxer continued, “I would say there were a number of factors that went into it, not the least of which is the Electoral College.”
“[Clinton] got three million more votes, and I think that’s never stated, so she won, but she lost,” Boxer concluded. “I think the reason is we Democrats took for granted a lot…I think we focused too much on [Trump] and thought that was enough, and it was enough for her to win by three million, but in the Midwest where they’re struggling, she had the plans, but we took it for granted.”
