The below is a collection of thoughts as to why the American people voted against Clinton and, ergo, Obama and his policies. Some thoughts are mine; many are from people I have talked with who wanted to share their reasons for voting Trump.
The American people don’t like being called nasty names by either the media, or politicians running for office. Calling the American people “deplorable,” “racist,” “homophobic” and other names alienated the American voter. This action motivated many people to vote for Trump.
