Hillary: Trump’s ‘Looking Backwards’ Reality TV Style Worked in Less Sophisticated, Less Diverse Red States

News Lead / March 13, 2018

Hillary Clinton, seen here during the 2016 presidential campaign, says she was "shell-shocked" by her loss to Donald Trump
Over the weekend in Mumbai at India Today’s Conclave, 2016 Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said less sophisticated and diverse red state voters were drawn to Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant “looking backwards” realty TV campaign. Clinton said, “You know, if people were looking for the reality TV campaign, maybe I should have given them more entrainment. You know, I’m the mother who says eat your spinach so you grow up strong and somebody else is saying eat all the fast food and ice cream you can possibly stick in your mouth. And all of a sudden I’m thinking wait a minute, maybe I’m running a  campaign like all the other campaigns I have been a part of and he is doing something entirely different, which is this reality TV campaign. Fascinating and it’s something that will come to a democracy near you at some point. And voters have to be prepared to say, ‘OK that was entertaining. Wow, couldn’t take my eyes off him, but what is he really going to do and what has he ever done that convinces me he could actually accomplish any of it?’ So it’s going to require a lot more—a much more sophisticated analysis
