Those bemoaning the fact that Donald Trump won in the electoral college but not the popular vote don’t seem to realize that’s hardly the only loss the Democrat Party has faced since Barack Obama has taken office.In addition to losing the presidency, Republicans now control the House and Senate, the majority of state governorships, and the majority of state legislative bodies.

Even though more people did vote for Hillary than Trump, the popular vote is clearly rejecting Democrats in every other area of government. And how have they responded? With no self-reflection whatsoever.
Indeed, the Party seems more happy to scapegoat and brand half the country as racist than examine the real reason they lost. Racism, Russian hackers, Islamohpbia, xenophobia, etc. – they’re pointing the finger at everyone. Except themselves.
