This guy hits it right on the head.
(other factors include just about everything he dismisses)
This is IMHO just more leftie self-flagellation, the exact same shit that happened post-brexit while they all clambered over each other to find someone, anyone to point the finger at.
And there lies the real difference between your average conservative and liberal leftie, the conservatives will blame everyone but themselves, the left liberal wants to blame their own team then wonders why their team-mates won't play ball any more when they need them most.
It's like a race to see which liberal/progressive causes they can chuck under the bus fastest in order to 'coddle' the right-wingers who won't vote for them in a fucking billion years; pointless, self-defeating desperation.
Labour and their supporters have been struggling to learn this lesson in the UK since Blair got kicked out of office and they've since given the UK their own version of Sanders in Corbyn, a man who has as much chance of being PM as the Daily Heil does of posting a pro-refugee headline.

The reason the polls were all wrong is not because some republicans were afraid to admit they were going to vote for Trump out of fear of censure. It was because they were frankly ashamed of it. This is an important difference and crucial to understanding how to move forward. This is not to say Don doesn't have his supporters. Just that it's been awfully quiet on the homefront, and I'm swimming in R's. None of the usual good natured gloating phone calls, just dead silence. How about the rest of you?
Well, I've witnessed quite a few White Olds chatting it up who are obviously strangers, in places like the supermarket, but that's typical behavior regardless of the election.
Pretty much everyone in a truck or SUV seems to be driving like even more of an asshole, though.
I'm in one of the leftest of left states and I've seen and heard some stuff.
I asked around a bit. From one independent worker in a mixed office space "Liberals are talking some about it, Conservatives are ducking into their offices and not interacting in the main areas."
Apparently, not too many people are willing to own this one. This should get very interesting as time goes on.

Trump and his cronies are going to rob this country blind.
Who better to represent a "fuck you, establishment!" vote than a gang of billionaire Goldman-Sachs/JPM bankers?
Oh wait, I forgot it's Hillary and all the not-Bernie democrats who are the corporate tools. My bad.
Most of my Facebook friends are doubling down on calling the Trump voters racists, sexists, etc. That means two terms of Trump.
Wait, there's more! We'll lose the Senate by 2018. Hillary was the perfect candidate & everyone else was too stupid to see how honest & awesome she really is. We are soo fucked.
