That is true, but she was supposed to get them. She and her team expected to get them. That is, in fact, why media helped push Trump through the GOP primary. He was the one they knew she could beat because he neutralized this problem she has with women. I thought they were right on that. Trump was the one candidate she could beat. But even that wasn’t possible. Between this and her general reputation for scandal and dishonesty (see comment above about the relative perception in the GE), terrible campaign skills and instincts, and some despair factors in the electorate that worked in Trump’s favor, even beating him wasn’t possible for her.
