Bernie Sanders drew in two separate contingents of people who dislike HRC: Liberals who consider Hillary to be too conservative, vs. conservatives who couldn't stomach any of the clownish GOP candidates and who saw Sanders as a lifeboat. The liberal faction will hold their noses and vote for Hillary, while the conservative faction will hold theirs and vote for Trump. Sanders was a much more viable candidate, and did better than Hillary in every general election matchup poll, simply because he was able to siphon away a lot of voters from Trump.
Hillary strikes people as dishonest and disingenuous partly because everything she says sounds like it went through a committee. (Meanwhile Trump is tweeting in his underwear.) She likes insipid platitudes: "We're problem solvers, not deniers." "We don't hide from change, we harness it." "We can reform our government and revitalize our democracy so that it works for everyday Americans." etc. etc. etc. It sounds out-of-touch- she hasn't realized that people are sick of politicians always saying shit like that.
But the scandals associated with her are as boring as she is. They only gain traction because she doesn't know how to handle scandals. It's infuriating to watch her keep trying to sweep stupid little stuff under the rug even as it's being pulled away from her. Instead of handling things during one news cycle, she cops to things bit by bit by bit by bit... giving her detractors a prolonged orgasm.
Four Americans died in the Benghazi embassy attack- but let's get some perspective here. During the GWB administration, 60 people were killed in 13 embassy attacks. (All those attacks were one-day stories- since back then, nobody wanted to "politicize a tragedy".) The Benghazi investigations did uncover Hillary's email scandal- but seriously, why are we surprised that a 65 year old woman who still uses a Blackberry doesn't understand how to use email?
In 2007 the investigation of the U.S. Attorney firing scandal ground to a halt once it turned out that the GWB administration had conveniently "lost" five million emails relating to it, in violation of federal law. That's five million, with an "M", about a thousand times as many that were lost by Hillary. But that was also a one-day story- the Bush administration defused its scandals deftly.
People characterize Hillary's email ineptitude as reflecting poorly on her lack of judgment, and there's something to that. But she's running against a guy who just released a campaign logo showing the letters "T" and "P" having anal sex. At least the "T" was the one doing the pitching, not the catching, but it still shows a lack of judgement on his part as well.
Both of these two are narcissists. But they're different flavors of narcissism. She's opportunistic and careerist. But Trump has narcissistic personality disorder which is much more serious. All he talks about is Donald Trump, all his stories involve Donald Trump, and his press conferences are 100% about who is and isn't saying nice things about Donald Trump. He refers to himself in the third person. That's a big red flag right there.
