Hillary lost Wisconsin in the 2016 election for the same reasons she lost the other rust belt states. People there didn’t believe she had their best interests in mind. She also neglected to campaign there because she thought she had the election in the bag.
In her new book, she cites a false study to explain away the loss of Wisconsin.
The NTK Network reports:
Clinton Cited False Study As Reason She Lost Wisconsin
Hillary Clinton is blaming her Wisconsin loss on a voter ID law that she alleged helped “reduce turnout by 200,000 votes,” in the state. The only problem for Clinton is that independent fact checkers have blasted the study she cited as false.
In “What Happened,” Clinton wrote:
“In Wisconsin, where I lost by just 22,748 votes, a study from Priorities USA estimated that the new voter ID law helped reduce turnout by 200,000 votes, primarily from low-income and minority areas.”
Clinton’s claim that Wisconsin’s new voter ID law reduced turnout by 200,000 votes is “mostly false,” according to the independent fact-checking outlet PolitiFact.
PolitiFact scored this claim as “mostly false,” in May when Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) alleged, “Voter turnout in 2016 was reduced by approx. 200,000 votes because of WI’s photo ID laws.”
It is truly stunning to watch this woman build such a long list of excuses for why she lost. She obviously still hasn’t accepted it and probably never will.
