The takeaway from the 2012 election, as it relates to 2016, is that Barack Obama was a ONCE in a lifetime type of candidate. The first African-American candidate. He was young. He was fresh and his candidacy embodied the sort of ‘change’ that so many dissatisfied American’s felt following a long war in Iraq and the financial collapse of the U.S. housing market.
And despite all that popularity, enthusiasm and African-American turnout, he still only attained 51.1% of the popular vote in 2012.
Hillary Clinton stands no chance of besting the numbers of Barack Obama from 2012. She is far less popular. She has far less charisma. She does not inspire enthusiasm, and she comes with a lifetime of corrupt decisions and illegal behavior.
